We just returned from a two week road trip to the Pacific Northwest. We do a lot if hiking and find it very convenient to keep hiking gear and boots in the frunk. It is a great seat while putting on boots. It started at Crater Lake when several people asked us if we were OK or needed help. We politely answered that we were fine wondering if our advancing years were making us appear helpless (we are not). Next a park ranger at the Hoh Valley Trailhead pulled up and asked us if we the people needing a jump. We said we were not and then noticed an ICE across the parking lot with the hood up. An ah ha moment as we realized that the hood up is a distress signal. Being creatures of habit we persisted in our practice and had no less than another half dozen offers for help from rangers and visitors. We converted these kind offers into opportunities to educate on the wonders of the Model S. If you are interested our trip started in Grass Valley, up I-5, KOA in Klamath Falls, Camped at Crater Lake toured andk hiked and made it to Grants Pass on a single charge, Up the Columbia Gorge to the Dalles (12 amps overnight) then North to Olympic National Park, great 70 amp charging available in Port Angeles. Ferry to Victoria then to Nanaimo ferry to Tsawwassen, side trip to Siver Falls State Park OR on to Detroit Lake SC (why) then home. PM me if you would like details. Side Note on Ferries. You have to be there an hour ahead of time and wait packed in in the staging area. Everyone is waiting and the Model S attract a lot of attention with emboldened drivers asking lots of questions. Last note. If you plop down on the frunk with extra force, it is a great alternate method for removing the nose cone.
