    Have 5 day trip to Jackson/Tetons, loading up the wife, kids 4/6/7, and dog, for another road trip in the MS 90D. 35000 miles and a number of great road trip memories through the northwest over last few years. I haven’t used the Lima, MT charger yet or been to southern Yellowstone/Tetons in my MS but am excited to explore. Colter Bay campground for 2 nights I think I will be ok without having to charge before going back to Jackson, but will be driving pretty slow and conservative through the park areas....will update if anyone is interested... i am very familiar with the area there, but haven’t done it in the Tesla. If my experience holds, it will be an amazing trip...

    No I pads or screens for kids, just watching our country roll by... met two dudes at hand cafe in Lima who were riding divide trail from Alberta to Mexico.... headwind last 4 hrs, moose and deer on road , kids helped scan for animals coming over both passes swan valley to victor to Jackson... Great smooth drive. Looking forward to heading into the park next few days.

    This is exactly what shows the advantage of Tesla in the EV market. Name me another EV that can make a trip like this. Superchargers are what make the Tesla! I am planning a similar trip in the near future. Love the pictures of the majestic Tetons with the Model S.
