    Also range charge and find a 110V outlet at same hotel he stayed at.

    Blog post on NYT Wheels blog should be updated soon too.

    Anyone interested?

    I'm game too. We'd need to pick a day with similarly cold temperatures, or the skeptics would claim it wasn't valid.

    I know, I'm living an exciting life

    It's supposed to rain/snow on Saturday in Milford, CT and be similarly cold on Sunday. Would be worse conditions that he was in.
