Road Trip Recharge #8: Rawlins, WY

LOCATION: Fairfield Inn & Suites

MILES DRIVEN SINCE LAST CHARGE:  98.4 miles since last charge.

KWH USED:  37.1 kWh used.

TYPE OF CHARGER: Tesla Supercharger

LOCATION DETAILS: The Supercharger is located near a couple of nice hotels – the Fairfield Inn & Suites, Comfort Inn & Suites and the Holiday Inn Express. Restaurants and food spots nearby include Burger King, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Subway and Deb B’s Family Espresso. Rawlins seems like a nice community with easy access to the Superchargers from the interstate.

WHAT WE DID WHILE CHARGING: This was another short charge, so we charged our electronics in the Fairfield Inn & Suites lobby and checked in on our social media sites to see what we missed without having much service on our last trek.

TIME START: 6:45 p.m.

TIME END: 7:10 p.m.

LENGTH OF CHARGE: 25 minutes

WH/MILE: 377 Wh/mile

HOW WE’RE FEELING: We are feeling tired, but good. One more short journey to the next charging station before our last long journey of the trip to Salt Lake City. Amanda is a little sad that she missed her son’s first steps tonight, but she is being a trooper while away from her kiddos.

OTHER NOTES: The drive from Laramie to Rawlins was very windy. The semis were having some trouble, but our Tesla handled the wind gusts just fine. One thing we decided would be convenient at the charging stops is fluid to wash our windshield. We ended up stopping by a gas station on our way out of town to clean up the car a bit.
