Hello All,

We have planned a week-long trip to the Smoky Mountains and will be staying in Cherokee, NC. This is our first time visiting Smokies and hence will be exploring normal touristy stuff like Cades Cove, Clingman's Dome, Bryson City, Gatlingburg, etc. Only after booking our reservation, I realized that there aren't any supercharger around Bryson City. One is in Asheville which is like ~60 miles away and the other one is in Knoxville which is like ~2 hours from Bryson City. It would be really helpful if I can get some information on how can I manage to explore these places without stressing out.

Also, google maps shows that the distance between Bryson City and Cades Cove is ~63 miles. Since the drive would be through mountains should I be expecting tesla to take like ~100 miles to cover this distance?
