Today i drove 143 miles. Stepping it up to get home!
Thunder, lightning, dime size hail.
Yet the dauntless i-Miev is unfazed.
The open road continues to call.

Did you get from Moriarty to the RV park in Santa Rosa on a single charge, especially in such weather? :shock: That looks like a 79+ mile leg with nothing in the middle. After a feat like that, the 59 miles to Tucumcari must've been no sweat! :mrgreen:

Nope. Weather, hail and headwinds made me stop at the Bowlin Flying C Ranch for a topup charge.
Then to Santa Rosa.

Day 17 was a bit weird. Left route 66 early, made it through Panhandle and Pampa TX. Only to discover that the subsequent charging opportunity no longer exists. Fortunately i hadnt taken the sharp turn north yet. So here i am back on the route in Alanreed Texas.
The route doesnt want to let me leave just yet. I drove 110 miles. Only 67 were "forward progress" though.
Onward! Will probably take the direct turn out of Tulsa instead.
Oh darn!

At least the weather looks good for you! Still waiting for you to break the 200-mile day barrier (which is actually more difficult to do when one is on the road in unfamiliar territory than when on one's home turf).

Trip data spreadsheet updated. I update this spreadsheet every day even though I may not post that I've done it, but also noticed a quirk with Google's spreadsheet that if I don't hit tab or return the data entry does not persist.
