Road Trip Recharge #5: Rapid City, SD

LOCATION: Rapid City, SD

MILES DRIVEN SINCE LAST CHARGE:  145 miles since last charge.

KWH USED:  52 kWh used.

TYPE OF CHARGER: Tesla Supercharger

LOCATION DETAILS: The Supercharger is located near the parking lot of the Rushmore Mall, where there is plenty of options to eat and shop. The mall opens at 10 a.m. on weekdays, but Starbucks is open earlier. Additionally, there is a Red Lobster just feet away from the charging station and Texas Roadhouse is just down the street, too,

WHAT WE DID WHILE CHARGING: We opted to charge our vehicle the morning after we pulled into town, so we headed over to Starbucks to have coffee, breakfast and work on preparing our blog posts for the day. We got so much work done and discovered, once again, that our charge was complete before we were ready to go.

TIME START: 7:21 a.m.

TIME END: 8:14 a.m.

LENGTH OF CHARGE: 53 minutes

WH/MILE: 347 Wh/mi

HOW WE’RE FEELING: Day #2 – we are fairly tired after a quick sleep in Rapid City, but we have many fun opportunities lined up for today, including a live radio interview and a little sightseeing. We are excited to hit the road now that we are “fueled up” on both coffee and electricity.

OTHER NOTES: Stay tuned for a fun day ahead and make sure you head over to our Facebook page to watch some live videos we posted yesterday.
