Superchargers, chasing them

We take every opportunity to look for superchargers when we are abroad. I started it back in 2015 while considering ordering a Tesla (the X at that time), and started visiting superchargers in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Vacationing, last year – 2015, we did our 1st leg for crossing the USA from coast to coast, going from Miami, passing by Key West and along the coast of the gulf up to Houston, and at every supercharger we would stop for pictures. It so happens that it would have been possible to drive a Tesla Model S for the whole journey (including visiting the Keys) with free of charge consumption for the S using the superchargers USA network. But not the car rental: for the time being renting a Model S keeps being pretty pricy, in the order of $300 per day, plus tax, give or take, the S 70 @Exotic Enterprise.

This time our 2nd leg of the coast to coast USA trip started where we stopped last year, Houston, and all the way to Las Vegas. It was long, and we did a bunch of visiting, including chasing more superchargers. Returning home from Las Vegas was a bit painful, three flights, the second one from Los Angeles to London.

In every airport stop there’s always something funny happening, the wife being “stalked” as an “anonimous/disguised in transit movie star” 🙂 This time it happened at the LA airport.
