    X Love

    I'm loving my model X. Got it back in August so I could drive from central VA to a wedding in Houston, TX and that was an education. lol Fortunately there were enough chargers along the route that reaching the destination was no problem even if I had to stop a lot more often than I would have liked. I didn't know about abrp then. Now it is much easier to plan routes like this.

    Houston to Big Bend in a Bolt

    Your enthusiasm for your car and the trips reminds me of some of the early Tesla adopters. They talk about trips before Superchargers were widespread and far apart. One guy talked about having to drive below 40 mph to reach his destination. Congrats to you for being ahead of the pack!
  3. I have driven between my homes in both places a number of times and I can never seem to get quite good enough mileage to just hit one charger on the way. Planning the trip is a bit of a PITA with the Tesla tools since they show all the chargers but no mileages. They want to do all the thinking for you and just tell you where to stop. I prefer a single hour long charging session while I eat rather than two or three stops of 20-30 minutes each. So, in comes abetterrouteplanner and I find it much easier to plan my trips with the tool providing much more info. This is even better than the in-car trip planning tool. It still doesn't make it easier to only make a single stop, but now I can more easily plan where I make the two stops. 😉
