    Hello together,

    I have to overtake a Citroen C Zero driving around the world: the first around the world electric car race - 80 electric days - world round trip
    Therefore I will need help form Tesla owners along the route 80 from NY to SF and then LA to give me a fast charge on their HPC
    If you know someone please give him the hint that I'm coming ;)

    Also I need more visits on my website and more Facebook friends to be able to move the press.
    Please help the world to get faster elecric and follow the race on:

    Best wishes! You should be very careful in selecting your route west of I-35; there are a lot of long stretches with no decent EV charging options. RV campgrounds are going to be a necessity crossing these areas; these are equipped with 40A 240v service, but it is essential that you call ahead! Nearly all US Nissan dealerships also have J1772 Level 2 chargers that are nominally available for the public, but again, you should call ahead and confirm with the specific dealer.

    Many HPCs can be found on the PlugShare.net website or the PlugShare or Recargo iPhone apps.

    Some Nissan dealers will only let Leafs charge. RV parks will allow you to charge at 40A instead of 30A on the J1772 anyway so as Robert said, probably best option.

    I have an HPC just off of I81 and I26 here in NE Tennessee. While we have MANY free public chargers in TN I have yet to find one above 30, amps.

    if you pass through Cincinnati, you are welcome to use my 14-50 outlet. I am on the far west side of town (right before you hit Indiana)

    Fortunately my experience is very different with Nissan as they have been most accomidating and have given me access 24x7 on several occasions.

    I'll offer up my 14-50 outlet in Fremont, NE, but I'm in the middle of nowhere. Although, you might be able to find a route with plenty of RV plugins available through Nebraska.

    That may be your best bet through the heartland with 14-50 or others and in the 30/40 AMP range, but continue doing your due diligence.
    There are a few iPhone aps for that including: CTRVParks and RVPark Finder.

    I've just requested 'friend' status to your FB page, but shouldn't you instead make a "page" where you can gather 'likes' rather than having people request you as a 'friend?'
