I saw your tweet this morning and just finished reading thru today's post. You do a great job of documenting a long drive in an interesting and animated way
Thanks... Been a busy summer, I had hoped to publish this a month ago, originally, but thought to goad those "back at their desks" into taking a well-deserved break and dream of summer drives... in the middle of National Drive Electric Week!I saw your tweet this morning and just finished reading thru today's post.

Not so much on the WA side of the border ..
Not sure what the utility is like across the border into Vancouver, WA, but the PDX area utility is quite EV savvy and friendly.
That's cheaper than some solar PPA in California.Not so much on the WA side of the border .
I even reached out to my power company (which uses clean energy, most all from hydro from a dam about 40 miles away) and asked if they offered a rebate for installing home EV charging equipment like the utility Puget Sound Energy in Seattle and some in CA, which I provided links to those jurisdictions EV programs. Response I got was something like "no, we like to encourage customers to use less power not more like adding an EV would".
So they seem to be missing the big picture of what an EV brings to the party... but their rates are $0.08 24/7, so not complaining
Awesome. Glad you were able to experience La Tarasca.@AEDennis - my sister and I went up to Seattle for a Mariners game Sunday and had dinner on the way home at the Mexican restaurant you went to in Centralia! Would never have considered it if you hadn't included it in your post, and it was great (even the carrots)!
