Editor's note: This entertaining bit was sent in by EE Times Guru Dwight Bues (Charles Picek's nephew). The events recounted here took place in the Fall of 2010. More EV charging stations have been popping up across the country (see more info in Brian Fuller's Drive for Innovation posts). And if he took the same trip now, Mr Picek would probably have a much easier time plotting his course. Have any info on new charging stations between Ft. Myers and Daytona Beach? Please go ahead and post your updates in the comments field.
Oh, and Dwight says that Charles Picek now has a Tesla Model S on order. I only hope I'm so energetic at 90!
