Here we go! This Thursday after work I start my first long EV road trip. I did a brief road trip to Ft Worth at the beginning of summer but this one will be a doozy. In addition we will have an ICE van that will also be caravaning with us. I am not over planning this (or maybe I am). I am not new to road trips. We have a ton of miles on our minivan. We have driven it across country at least 3 times. It is no big deal. Get in and go. Pray the battery doesn't die because a kid left a light on overnight. Anyway I am hoping maybe me being anal and charting this long trip (as long as I don't lose patience with all this typing) might help someone. So we are going to Disney and Universal Studios in FL. We have 7 people going! My parents are driving our van with two of our kids and my wife and I are going in the Tesla with my teen. We'll be staying two nights on the way there and one night on the way back. My parents are staying in Marriott chains and my wife and I are staying in Hilton chains. They want to use points for the hotels and I need destination chargers and it seems like Hilton is easier with the destination chargers. Here are the trip details so far. Day 1: Drive from Austin to Beaumont, TX. We'll be leaving in the late afternoon. We will be staying at homewood suites (destination charger) with stops at Columbus and Channel View superchargers. The first day is a brief 254 miles. Day 2: Drive from Beaumont, TX to Panama City, FL. You might ask why we are staying there well turns out every hotel in Tallahassee is booked the night we'll be driving through and need a room. So I am booked at a Hilton Garden Inn in Panama City that has a destination charger. We'll be stopping at Lake Charles, Baton Rouge, Slidel, Mobile, and Defuniak Springs. This leg is a more lively near 600 mile section. Day 3: Drive from Panama City, FL to Orlando. Here is where we don't know what we'll be doing. We might drive down the eastern coast of FL to get there just for fun. If we are done by the end of the 2nd day we might decide to drive straight through. Anyway if we go the east coast through Daytona we'll be charging at Tallahassee, Lake City, St. Augustine, and Altamonte Springs. That would be a 440 mile day. If we drive straight we'll be charging at Ocala and Turkey Lake instead of St. Augustine and Altamonte springs and that would reduce the drive down to 367 miles. Day 4 and 5 we'll be at Disney Day 6 and 7 we'll be at Universal Day 8 and 9 we'll be back at Disney Day 10 We'll be driving and staying the night in Gulfport (I haven't figured out the superchargers yet) Day 11 We'll be driving all the way home to Austin. Anyway I'll be posting more updates as we go along. I bought a gopro but I have no clue how to use it or any of that fun stuff. You might get videos and you might not. You might get video my teen shoots or you might not. You might get video with kids screaming at parents or videos with parents screaming at kids. You might not. Anyway my first question for everyone in FL. How the heck do I use the turnpike? From what I gather I need access if we don't go down the east coast and I think the Turkey Lake supercharger is on the turnpike right? @SoFlaModel3 Today my trip prep today was to change the brakes on the van because it had some bad vibration when stopping. It is a common issue with these vans.
