The final post in my epic journey from Tampa to Las Vegas via the Tesla Supercharger network.
In which our intrepid warrior gets the wanderlust and takes a trip to DC just to play with some cool software.
In which a green minivan is rented and the stark contrast between the first and third worlds is revealed.
Why truckers have speed.
Preparing for a 9000 mile journey requires surprisingly little service. No fluids, good tires, a decent map and a firmware update was all it took.
Plus I got to be an self-appointed honorary goodwill ambassador for Tesla Motors.
You will never guess what a drummer who travels for work collects while on the road. Never in a million, zillion years!
I planned a few more details about the trip. It was not as trivial as I had thought it would be to map out the complete supercharger route. While the Tesla site shows the address of all the open superchargers, Google Maps search is not up-to-date enough to find them all by the keyword "Tesla Supercharger".
So, I manually and painstakingly created a 40 (the maximum) waypoints on Roadtripper, one for each Supercharger on my route.
The most interesting icon is the little gas pump at the top. It says I will use more than $700 worth of fuel. Ha!
