The preceding Parts 1-4 of lists of Charging stations are for the trip from Rockford-Chicago-Santa Monica ONLY.

As one can see, if one averages charging costs out it comes to about$19 a day in "energy" costs.

Very uneven. Some days were absolutely free, some were obscenely costly.

Overall, if we averaged about 80 miles a day this would be equal to about the equivalent of 3 gallons of gasoline a day. (about $7 a gallon!!!!!!!!)

Yikes.

Never said it would be a CHEAP trip....there were areas we could have charged for free, but we didn't want to be on the road for 50 days each way LOL.

Nevertheless, that's the trip TO Santa Monica. The return trip will be posted separately, and the video/photo project continues.

WAYYYYY too much data to analyze and compile.
Stay tuned.

OKay!

I am pleased to announce that after 3 months of Computer crashes, family issues and program crashes,
I have completed the 4 disc Photo/Video DVD project. If anyone should want one, please let me know by PM. If you send me your address, I will send you a set....it's free and a collection of photos and videos of our trip. I will pay all costs for shipping.

Thanks all for the help!....

Well, hope all who have received the photo and video DVDs have enjoyed them.
A long and challenging project...the trip itself was more fun than the analysis.

Just wanted to say this was indeed interesting.

Take care, all!
