We've decided on a last minute trip to see my wife's folks, leaving tomorrow and returning next Saturday … a long drive, but I've talked my wife into taking the Model S rather than the minivan. Unfortunately, I'll have to relent about food and drink in the backseat for our 6 year old daughters. Not an easy thing for me. The normal route is a straight shot down I-81 to just west of Knoxville, then I-40 to I-75. Clearly, that won't work unless we want to camp out at RV parks for hours on end and that will get me relegated to the minivan in a heartbeat. So, instead, we'll be taking the supercharger route through Burlington, NC with an overnight in Asheville to charge. Will then pick up the next morning for the remaining distance. Details: Normal route: 810 miles Supercharger route: 915 miles Redding, CT to Newark, DE: 187 miles Newark, DE to Glen Allen, VA: 197 miles Glen Allen, VA to Burlington, NC: 197 miles Burlington, NC to Asheville, NC: 188 miles Asheville, NC to Caryville, TN: 146 miles Estimated time to Asheville, including stops, is 14 hours, then another 2.5 the next day. On the return trip, we'll leave after dinner on Friday, stay the night in Asheville again, then the rest of the way home the following day. Looks like crosswinds until DC then a tail wind for a bit followed by more crosswinds when we get into NC so energy usage should be reasonable at highway speeds. There's a nice high pressure system over MO that will bring us neutral to favorable winds. It really is like flight planning, though all bets are off in the Smokies. For those who waste their time on Twitter I'll be tweeting periodically from @queuect on the trip down and back.
