Bay Area to Lake Tahoe Excursion

Fri Oct 26, 2018 11:13 pm

Just returned from a little 600-mile round-trip three-day jaunt up to the mountains in Mitti, taking different routes going and coming and stopping to visit friends along the way. All the EVgo CHAdeMO stations worked flawlessly, as did the i-MiEV. Pales in comparison to Rick's epic Route 66 journey and even his 1000-mile trip, but certainly makes me appreciate his travels. I'll do an update after I synthesize some of the Canion and GPS data.

Spurred on by Aerowhatt's great graphics, I'm slowly trying to integrate both the GPS track data and the various consumption numbers (many missing due to both Android power loss and Bluetooth dropout issues). In the meantime, I did manage to salvage and extract my GPS track off the Garmin, the orange line on the map below -
