Road Trip Recharge #1: Clearwater, MN

LOCATION: Clearwater Travel Plaza

MILES DRIVEN SINCE LAST CHARGE: 0 – Since this is our official departure location, consider this mile 0.

TYPE OF CHARGER: Tesla Supercharger

LOCATION DETAILS: Clearwater Travel Plaza offers many wonderful things. It is attached to a Holiday gas station to gather any essentials you might need. Nelson Brothers Bakery in the Clearwater Travel Plaza also has a wonderful selection of donuts that are as big as your head! In addition, they serve a full menu pretty much all day. Plus there’s ice cream and a gift shop. No matter what time of the day you might be charging there is always something to do or see.

Nearby, there is also a Taco Gringo and a Dairy Queen.

WHAT WE DID WHILE CHARGING: During this stop, we prepped for the first leg of our trip. We put together our signboard and business cards and stopped by the Holiday Gas Station for ice, coffee and road trip beverages. We also purchased some donuts of course!

Clearwater donuts

TIME START: 7:25 a.m.

TIME END: 8:10 a.m.

LENGTH OF CHARGE: 45 minutes

KWH: 0 – Since this is our official departure location, we have no kWh yet.

MILES/KWH: 0 – Again, since this is our departure location, there is nothing to report.

HOW WE’RE FEELING: We are excited to hit the open road! Our next stop is Worthington, Minnesota. According to our Tesla navigation, we will make it just in time as our battery life will be around 9 percent when we arrive. We are still figuring out how the car works and where things are located inside, but we anticipate we will get into the flow of things later today.

OTHER NOTES: Stop #1 is done! We hope you will continue following along with us on our journey to Salt Lake City.
