Hi All,

Looking for any LR DM Model Y owners who have 20" Induction wheels who have made the trip from anywhere in the Bay Area down to the Orange County/San Diego area. Are you able to make it all the way down with just one stop for charging?

The reason to make two stops is doing it in one stop means charging for 1/2 an hour, while doing it in two you charge for 5 minutes each. The bottom half of the battery charges VERY quick. And most of the I-5 chargers are right off the freeway.

I use Santa Nella and Button Willow as those were the same exits I used in my ICE days, but Firebaugh and Kettleman City have LOTS of V3 chargers if you can make it to them.
