First Long Trip


Jun 25, 2019
Rockport, Texas
Drove from our home, outside Corpus Christi, Texas to Woodland Park, Colorado and stayed a week admiring the aspen color display and the mountains.
Total miles, 2,985, total supercharger cost, $107.31. Never had to wait for a charger and only at one location the chargers were full after we pulled in.
Only issue we had was the drive from Amarillo to Trinidad, 225 miles and uphill. We had charged to 95% and reduced our speed to 55mph for the last several hours, should have charged to 100%, but both the Tesla navigate and ABRP said no problem.
Wonderful trip plus fantastic car, a joy to drive plus the entertainment makes the time fly by....
Also with the auto pilot able to take some nice photos without running off the road....

Ours is a 2018 LR RWD, aero.

Nice shot! Yes, the Amarillo-Trinidad leg could use a Supercharger somewhere in-between. It's an inconvenience for LR vehicles, but outright un-doable in the lower-range variants.
