    I am about to take my first long trip from Saint Louis mo , to Gatlinburg tn routing though Nashville. Any advice from anyone who has done the trip before? Evtripplanner shows the knoxville tn supercharger as red so I am not quite sure how if i am going to make it. My backup strategy is to hit up a Nissian dealers chademo which is on the way.

    23 Executive Drive, Crossville, TN, 38555 -- nissian dealer

    Nashville to gatlinburg wasnt bad at all. Averaged 321wh/mi going well above the speedlimit. (staying with the flow of traffic)

    An additon
    An additional fun option - most of the Cracker Barrels along the way have J1772; not a super-fast charge rate, but if you eat lunch and drink sweet tea (!)- you can get an hour in (~28 mi).

    We were planning to stop at one, had a few listed as a backup. Also noticed there are a couple with CHAdeMO as well.

    Yes I think there are 14 Tennessee Cracker Barrel with CHAdemO and Gatlingburg has MANY charging options with a number of higher powered destination chargers. Black bear Solar has done a wonderful job of blanketing the area with chargers.
