Yea, this is a pretty random thought. But while on vacation in Alaska last week I was wishing for my Model S instead of the gas guzzling Armada and Suburban I ended up driving while there. But that led to thoughts about the practicality of driving an EV in Alaska and how and where I'd charge. There were quite a lot of RV parks, so assuming they are EV friendly that would probably be my first choice. But while in Palmer, AK we passed by a welding shop and it got me wondering if we need a welding shop network (with app and web site of course!) in a semi-serious way. Remote locations like Alaska (and Arkansas too, aparently) may have a dirth of public chargers and other Tesla owners, but they often have a wealth of welding shops, auto body shops and other facilities that are likely to have NEMA 6-50 outlets available. Granting the risks of parking your car for several hours around welding equipment, heavy iron being hauled around and the general filth present in most facilities, that wouldn't be my first choice, but as an emergency back up plan, if the owners are willing, it seems somewhat practical.
