EV Road Trip – Day 4

Day 4EV Road Trip Day 4. Pepper and I are taking it easy today. Stopping in to spend time with family  as well as visiting the Ice Harbor Dam and figuring out how get a 100% charge so we can leave on a “full tank” tomorrow for the trek back to the islands.

Pushing the limit on our range (gotta freak your mom out just a little ). I got it down to where it said it had 32 miles to go (that’s about what I let my gas car get to before filling up). We made it out to Ice Harbor Dam and back and some errands to boot. Then we went to the free fast charger and let it get a full charge for two hours while eating dinner. We are charged and ready to head back to the islands tomorrow.
