Even though I am in DFW/Southwest, I am posting here because I think eyes and boots on the ground in GA, SC and NC will have better up-to-the minute info for SC stations roll-outs. I am planning a trip this Fall Late OCT./Early NOV. primarily to visit/tour Auldbrass Plantation near Yemassee, South Carolina. (It is only OPEN every other year for 2 days, scheduled to be open again in Fall 2015.) I will be departing DFW late October (date to be determined), but I MUST be in South Carolina by Friday Nov. 1 for Nov. 2 tour. I am looking at current TM SuperCharger map projections for Fall 2013, and there appears to be a future one located East of Atlanta, and several throughout South Carolina and North Carolina. TWO BIG questions: *** Leaving Dallas in my S85 with a full charge, I might make it as far as Minden or possibly Ruston, LA (254 mi.) Would I then go to an RV park, Nissan Dealership or welding shop with a 50 amp plug and charge for ~8 hours to be back to 240 mile range, or would it be better to stop in Shreveport area, stop and get charge there? I calculate the OUTBOUND trip LEG (roughly) will be leave home, drive 3+ hours and charge 8 hours ~265 miles drive 3+ hours, charge for 8 hours ~240 to 265 miles drive 3+ hours, charge for 8 hours ~240 to 265 miles drive 3+ hours and MAYBE getting to Atlanta (781 miles from Dallas to Atlanta) Still need to get to the SC station East of Atlanta (finally!), if it is Open and operational at that time, will definitely require ANOTHER stop and some additional charge time. This looks to be cutting it really close (for me). Arrive at FIRST SC station, then recharge for 1 hour 15 minutes @ SC station and continue on to South Carolina. I wouldn't mind stopping at one hotel with EV charging, getting some rest (what else does one do for 8 hours?) mid-way to Atlanta. Does this even seem feasible, or am I missing something? Any updates or crystal balls that know if the station outside Atlanta status? Any updates or crystal balls for status and Openings of SC stations in South and North Carolina? Are there any hotels (recommendations) or B&B in South Carolina that have suitable EV facilities? Are there any hotels or B&B in North Carolina that have suitable EV facilities? AND then I need to rework a similar/reverse program for the RETURN Trip Leg back to DFW. OR, *** I still have my ICE, and I can make the leg to Atlanta in ~12 hours. Rest of trip would follow accordingly. OR, *** I have a maxi-scooter (Suzuki Burgman automatic touring motor cycle), and can make the leg to Atlanta in ~12 hours riding (might limit riding to 10 hours a day on bike with stops every 150/170 miles). Rest of trip would follow accordingly. I took a similar trip thru AR, TN, AL, MS and LA to Florence, Alabama last October on the Burgman, 1,300+ mi in 3 days. And yes, some rain was encountered. I guess I could fly into GA or NC or SC, get a rental car, (but how typical is that). I just went to SC Opening in Waco on Tuesday, LOVE the feel and drive of the Model S on the open road (first time away from the immediate DFW Metroplex in my MS). NO COMPARISON between the two cars (ICE is BMW 135i). There is a minor consideration about encountering rain/inclement weather while on the bike, but I have all the riding gear. I want to make a quick side trip to Durham, NC and possibly Asheville AFTER visiting Auldbrass. Maybe a couple of other SC stations will be Operational by then? IF the predominant thinking is to take the MS, I need to start doing some serious strategic planning to account for a full day plus (28 hours each way) of charging time ADDED to my schedule both OUTBOUND and RETURN Leg (56 hours total). Thank you in advance for any information, input, thoughts and insights for a trip into "the wild" across LA, MS, AL and GA input, without SC stations vs my back-up plan ICE.
