    in a few days I'll be embarking on my road trip from FLA to CO. I will be traveling on the SC network via I-10, I-45, I-35 and I-70.
    I am looking for info on the supercharger locations along the way, any tips on the SCs, close by restaurants and hotels would be greatly appreciated
    thanks in advance for your insights.

    I just came back from a trip from DC to Colorado. Your only issue will be from Hays, KS to Goodland, KS. The distance is 145 but the elevation increase is crazy. There is a KOA in between that you might want stop at depending on how fast you want to go.

    I remember that trip from the mid-1960's in a Lotus Cortina, in my case Hays-Denver-Hays. No doubt not too great Hays-Goodland. But...what a glorious return trip! I'd wager a P85D at 85mph return could get ~250 whmi or something maybe even a little less. Of course one needs to climb up there first

    If I do a range charge at hays I think I shouldn't have any issues, thanks for that tip.

    thanks for that, unfortunately there are a lot of omissions and old info on that site.
    if anyone has any first hand info to pass along that would be great.
