Guess I should share the projected image:


This is my plan to drive ~650 mi in 2-3 days, a shake down trip:
  • ~120 miles Nashville (Brentwood) to home - verify the 220 mi range car handles the trip at high speed, speed limit +5 mph and Autopilot handling.
  • document 40A, L2 charging profile to full charge.
  • 206 mi Huntsville to Memphis SuperCharger - a maximum range test to confirm my mph vs range chart.
  • camp in hotel Tesla - to verify overnight charging in a Tesla at an RV park works.
  • return to Huntsville with midway SuperCharger session - leaving with a full charge won't reach Huntsville so I'll use the Tupelo charger. If a problem, there is a NEMA 14-50 station about 15 miles away.
  • document 40A, L2 charging profile to recommended Tesla level.
