We love reading reports of cross-country drives in EV!

Read this fabulous trip report by Nathan Adlen  2500-mile(solo trip) big haul trip from coast to coast, Orange County, FL to Orange County, CA.

Few notable quotes from the report:

There’s no way to sugarcoat it: driving cross-country solo is a pain, but in the Hyundai Ioniq 5, it was better than I expected.

The plan was to do 350 – 450 miles per day, I could easily knock out a 2,500 mile trip solo, in a week.I estimated that each day required at least three stops – which averaged about 20 minutes.
My initial plan was altered, and I had to deal with several locations that forced me to use Level 2 chargers just to make it to a fast charger. This was especially true in Florida, where I spent an extra day after encountering two problems: dead chargers and chargers I wasn’t permitted to use.

and my favorite (and very funny)

How about a vending machine that squirts out caviar for Lucid and Tesla owners?
