Roadtrip blogs are focused on details of any trip that requires multiple day charging away from home base.
Shortly after my family and I completed our trip to Wildcat Mountain State Park, which was just past the rated range of our 60kWh Model S, I decided that seeing my close friend in Fargo was a realistic 227 mile drive from Plymouth, MN. For those of you who live a safe distance from Fargo, it is a cold and windy place, which makes range a lot harder to judge. After a few false starts for planning recreational activities that did not involve driving,

This summer, I took two road trips with my Model S. Both were a lot of fun and full of learning experiences.
Trip 1: North and East
My wife is an adoring and faithful fan of some Canadian Celtic band called Great Big Sea. We went to their concert in Saint Paul in March, and then, apparently, her big moment as a fan came. My wife works in theater. It's been her life-long dream to meet this band. So, when news of their show in Bayfield,

Our previous travels in Tess were completely unplanned except for always significantly overcharging for our planned miles. This was our second road trip with 60 KWH Tess. Our big "aha" moment is the change in mileage between the Supercharger list under places, and the actual navigation mileage. You should always select "navigate" before setting your plans in place. It appears the places listing for superchargers is as the crow flies, and not the navigation mileage.

On my trip to Blaine, WA for the start of BC2BC, I am pausing for a moment (while the Roadster is charging, and an excellent Burgerville lunch is settling) to reflect on how I find myself here. I first started driving an electric car in March of this year, so Iím still pretty new at this. If I turned around right now and drove home, then I would match the longest previous electric trip that Iíve made. Instead, I am now about 100 miles into what
On June 11th, 2013, my wife and I set out on an incredible adventure into the wild heart of British Columbia. Our purpose? Both to explore the vast "outback" of our adopted home and its many natual treasures, and also to test the limits of EV touring in a Model S in a way we believe had not yet been attempted. Our route included the famed Cariboo-Chilcotin Circle Route, with time in WA State added to visit relatives: up Vancouver Island, by ferry

6/5/2013 For my first long distance trip in Lithie, I decided to attend the Assault on Mt Evans. The trip would be roughly 1700 miles round trip. So, I figured I'd give myself 3 days for the trip out. So after a couple of days of calling around I had all my charge stops booked and I just had to wait for the date.
Fast forward to yesterday, which already seems like forever ago. Decided to take

Once you drive the Tesla, you really want to do all of your driving in your Tesla. Other cars are just not nearly as fun.
Thus when I needed from Amarillo to Austin, Texas to pick up my daughters at college, I immediately wanted to drive the Tesla. The problem is that this is a 510 mile drive in a car with a 265 mile range. If there were superchargers along the way, there
