Charging Across the Country

Gassing up the Musk-mobile at the truckstop and Punjabi diner in Foss, Oklahoma. Well, just cleaning the windshield using the water bins at the gas pumps. For the past three weeks we’ve been driving cross country in an EV visiting relatives and stopping at national parks. The short story: It’s easy to charge on the Tesla Supercharger network if you are fairly close to big cities or Interstates. It takes a bit more work when you’re out in country. The NEMA 14-50 adapter (bottom) helps because you can use RV plugins at some camping sites. We can also use non-Tesla chargers, with other adapters. Bottom line: it can be done without that much trouble if you aren’t in a big hurry and you plan. Below, charging up for $5 at a non-Tesla charger in Zion National Park in Utah and camping on Bureau of Land Management land near Zion. I’ll post a gallery when we get home. For now I’ll post this with some photos of the trip to follow here. We’re in Joshua Tree National Park in the California desert today.
