    I like these stories. Allows me to experience the Tesla through other drivers, while I "patiently" wait another few months till it (well, "she") arrives :)

    Nice write up and presentation...

    A couple of salient points...

    You are absolutely correct in saying to the effect, that after driving for a couple of hours, a five minute (or so) stretch of the legs feels good, and allows the Super Charger more time to complete it's task...no big deal at all, eh?

    As you did, you should always take the opportunity to plug in...even only at 110v as over the time that you are not using your car (sleeping), you might as well grab all the range you can...I just completed a long journey in 2 days...when I reached my destination for the night, I needed about 50 additional kms to get back to the Supercharger the next day... I lucked out as the Motel had a 110v 15A plug available for me to use, free of charge...the 80 kms I added to the battery that night saved me having to stop at a friend's 80A Sun Country station for an hour the next day...I needed about 50 kms additional range to get back to the Supercharger approximately 200 kms away.)

    Lastly, who won the match?:wink:

    Cheers!:smile:
