    Good job guys...it was cool following you on Twitter.

    You're driving back? Y'all are a glutton for punishment...

    The Somerset PA Supercharger is the one closest to me. I wasn't sure if it was completed yet - good to see that it is.

    Nice set of photos.

    Thanks for the pictures! How's the seat comfort? That makes or breaks long trips for me.

    "We made it from Las Vegas to the Beaver, UT @TeslaMotors Supercharger with 9 miles to spare. #evxcountry"

    You got lucky! DON'T TRY THIS TRIP IN WINTER! YOU WILL RUN OUT OF JUICE, DUE TO RUNNING THE HEATER AND WINDSHIELD DEFROSTER!!! AND THEN, STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF SOME MOUNTAINS.

    So, how many extra hours did you spend in all for these charges? When on these long trips, every minute counts. Imagine driving till 2 a.m. instead of being in hotel bed by 1 a.m. That 1 last hour can be crucial - if you fall asleep at the wheels, you are a gonner!
