Here's a quick run down of my biggest Tesla road trip so far. From Hood River, OR to Ashland, OR for a weekend at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival - a total of 350 miles with my twin charge 85. The Woodburn supercharger wasn't live yet so I had to plan it out carefully. I created a spreadsheet that would calculate my time, distance, charging, etc. to give me an overall sense of where to stop, for how long and what my journey would be like. I also included additional charging spots in case we needed them. The original plan had it taking 7.5 hours - including 2 hours of charging. In the end it took 10 hours! 1:45 more charging than planned, about 20 minutes due to unplanned traffic, and I figure an extra 20 minutes in overhead finding the charging stations, getting plugged in, etc. I had planned to stop at the Tesla Showroom at Washington Square 75 miles into my trip to top off (rated max range is 270). I assumed that I could charge at 60 mi/hr since they had an HPWC. We panicked because it was only charging at around 35 mi/hr and we needed to make up 92 miles of battery (I was driving at around 68 mph most of the way). We had tickets for a play that evening and we were concerned about being late. Luckily I read a tip on Recargo that you need to manually increase the max current in your Tesla to 72 A otherwise it will only draw 40 A. It still only charged at around 42 mi/hr (208 v / 72 A). We stayed an extra 45 minutes there and left with 253 rated miles of range. Next stop was at Knox Butte RV park in Albany. They were very helpful in trying to find me a 14-50 plug to use even though they were completely full. Charged for 2 hours there while having lunch at a nearby restaurant (Cascade Grill). Given that we weren't getting the range we expect and we'd have some bill hills to climb in southern Oregon, we charged a little bit extra. Left with 251 miles of rated range to go 222 miles. I drove at the speed limit - 65. Very hard for me. Especially coming up on a vehicle going like 63. I had to force myself NOT to pass them. Every big hill we went up made me very nervous but going down the other side alleviated that. We figured we'd arrive in Ashland pretty close to empty. The plan was to just dump the car, pick up our tickets and go see the show and worry about charging later. We actually arrived 45 minutes early with 16 miles of range. Decided to try to try and find the Blink charger in the nearby parking garage - reports were that it is ICED a lot. Miraculously - one EV charging spot was open (the other was ICED) even though the parking garage was jammed. WooHoo! Plugged in, picked up the tickets and got to the theater in time to have a glass of wine before the show! After the show we went to our friends' home where were staying and plugged into their 110 v outlet. They offered to let us use one of their cars so we could leave the Tesla plugged in but I declined the offer. I explained that I really wanted to prove to myself that this car can be used for long road trips and that I wouldn't need a "backup vehicle" at my destination. Over the weekend we were able to charge at the Blink charger near the theater whenever we were seeing a show and at the friend's house at night. We left Ashland a day and a half later with a 100% full charge. Driving back I just kept it slow to minimize how much charging time I'd need. We charged at the free Areovironment station in Eugene while having lunch nearby and again at the HPWC at Washington Square in Portland. It was oddly refreshing to take these walk breaks during a long road trip. Lessons: - I'm glad I planned out our route, mileage, stops, charging time, and listed the RV parks along the way that would have 14-50 outlets. - Thanks to the Internet, I can research what is around the different charging places and used that to decide where I would like to stop - Driving slower makes a big difference - even if only 3 mph slower. I could never bring myself to go much slower that 63 in a 65 zone. Plus its more relaxing because I'm not constant catching up to slower drivers as much and being frustrated.
