    Probably been mentioned, but I though I would. If you charge at Somerset, PA, which is right off the PA Turnpike exit ramp, it's also a very short (13 mile) drive up to the Flight 93 Memorial (US Park Service). I charged there, and went up to the memorial, then back down again, topped of, and back on the turnpike.

    A worthwhile diversion if you can make the time.

    Never been there, take delivery tomorrow and have been on the lookout for Tesla trip ideas. I'll add this to the list. Cheers.

    Somehow I managed to reverse the words in your title when I read it - so I opened the thread to see why they were closing the memorial and whether it was temporary or permanent.

    I'll have to keep that in mind when I'm out that way. :)

    I also highly suggest taking the @Newscutter scenic detour on the old Lincoln Highway as part of the trip to the Flight 93 Memorial. We've been traveling on that stretch a few times this summer and would like to go again in the fall.

    There's been some local folks who have expressed interest in putting EV charging stations along Route 30 in western Pennsylvania. We've helped point them in the appropriate direction to make that happen.

    This area is wonderful territory. We've been doing a lot of driving along this route and plan to do more. Will be joining @WATTS-UP and others in Gettysburg on Sunday.

    I've done Chambersburg, PA to Somerset 30 the whole way... it's a fun road.

    Honestly I think when I learned about it was in a thread about the EV Week event in Wayne in September. If you're free and want info, PM me and I can reply all to the email that's going around and include you.

    Damn I was just up there when I was headed to Niagara Falls with my son - wish I had seen this - I think this would really be worth it.
