So noted. I changed the previous 30 miles to 7 miles.

Trip data spreadsheet updated.

Here is the link to Rick's video interview with Jim Hinckley:

The video image that I viewed was reversed. :o Camera pointed at a mirror?

Interesting tidbit from this video: the first person killed by a car in the US was in New York in 1898 by an electric taxi.

zipping right along.
Looks like one more slow day before Santa Rosa as the Flying C is the only serious charging option between Moriarty and Santa Rosa. Then the pace really picks up north from Amarillo.
