Sunday morning 2AM, March 16th, we drive home.  Orlando to Miami, FL.  Our battery has been somewhat depleted from the races,  yet we’ve located a few EV chargers on the way down, so we can recharge while grabbing a late night bite.   Kohl’s is piloting an EV charger program and they have chargers in 33 locations.   At 3AM or so we pull into a shopping mall off of I95 in Melbourne at a Kohl’s to use their Chargepoint EV charger from of charge.  We grab a bite at an all night McDonald’s while the car charges up a bit.  Satisfied we have enough on the battery to make it home we continue on.    A few hours later we uneventfully arrive to Miami Beach with around 5,950 miles on the odometer.

Four weeks in a Tesla Model S, cross country nearly 6,000 miles.  Feb. 14 to March 16th.  It was a great experience and I can’t wait until my next 1,000+ mile trip in a Tesla electric car!!!

Last charging photo op of our trip.  Free Chargepoint charger near Melbourne, FL around 2AM in the morning.  We break next door at an all night McDonald's.

Almost home.  So worn out I can't even focus my eyes.  Hope we make it the last 5 miles home.
