Dear CA experts. Am leaning on your knowledge of this itinerary (SF-LA and back) and of the LA area traffic patterns (is there one?) to help/coax/encourage me. Moved here a year ago, and am not familiar with driving in the LA area. Still not sure I am doing it. Data: Work requires me to be in the LA area next Monday (San Bernardino actually...) Am planning to leave on Sunday. The meeting is mid-day on Monday. I would leave to go back to SF after lunch on Monday. I can fly or drive, both are reimbursed for a similar amount. Am thinking of staying at a favorite hotel in Huntington Beach on Sunday night (same for fly or drive). Idea: I should drive! Take the S on a cool road trip. On the way out, I may take the 101 for the sights. On the way back, am wondering how fast I can make the trip back via I-5. Ths is still just an idea. My wife is not into coming with, because of work and the 12-13 hours of road time in two days, so I would be alone with podcasts and Autopilot. Still doable! What gets me going here is the thought of optimizing the drive back for the perfect balance of speed versus energy consumption versus supercharging speeds to try for a fast time. Geeks, what are you gonna do. The challenge with that is that none of the tools at my disposal provide for all of the magic numbers. Evtriplanner does not have the S70, nor does it display charging time required at each stop. The in-car planning does show charging times, but does not tell me how much of a buffer it plans for when getting to each stop except for the first one. So, am left with the usual questions of number of stops and driving speed. I have seen some threads from 2012 and 2013, and my search-fu may have kept me from more recent ones. Oh right! I do not have home charging. If I range charge in San Mateo this week, I can probably leave with north over 200 miles of range on Sunday. With that, thoughts? Should I do it? Anyone doing it at the same time as me? How bad will trafic mess with this plan?
