Road Trip Recharge #16: Murdo, SD

LOCATION: Murdo, SD

MILES DRIVEN SINCE LAST CHARGE:  137.8 miles since last charge.

KWH USED:  50.9 kWh used.

TYPE OF CHARGER: Tesla Supercharger

LOCATION DETAILS: The Supercharging station is located in the parking lot of the Range Country Hotel in Murdo. There is also a Best Western across the street. The town is small, but there is a museum and a grocery store.

Between Rapid City and Murdo, we stopped in Wall, S.D. to check out Wall Drug. We have seen hundreds of billboards advertising for Wall Drug, so we decided to stop. We did not have much battery life to stay long, but it was cool to see and we got our free ice water.

WHAT WE DID WHILE CHARGING: We worked on catching up on our blog and took a little nap before hitting the road again.

TIME START: 9:45 a.m.

TIME END: 10:25 a.m.

LENGTH OF CHARGE: 40 minutes

WH/MILE: 370 Wh/mile

HOW WE’RE FEELING: We’re excited to be on the road and each mile we travel is closer to home. We are a little frustrated today because we are loosing battery charge faster than we did on the way to Salt Lake City. The colder, wet weather is definitely having an impact on the battery life, plus we are facing headwinds. Although it’s not too horrible, it is hard to drive under the speed limit, especially when we just want to get home.
