In My Spare Time: I enjoy walking our pup, grilling out with friends and reading.
Fun Fact: I grew up in Wisconsin and LOVE the Green Bay Packers!
Car I Drive: Chevy Equinox
One thing I hope to learn on this trip is overcoming range anxiety. Even though our car is built to provide us with worry-free charging guidance, I’m still worried we will run out of charge between charging destinations. I also look forward to seeing if and how our speed, vehicle temperature and other factors like charging electronics while driving factor into our vehicle’s battery life.
