I got up early, and decided to get a head start on this long day, so at 5:00am I left for Tulsa with 266 miles showing in the car. What a great way to start. I arrived at the Tulsa North KOA at a casino (which was closed at 6:30 am) with 177 miles in the car ( I had traveled 87 miles). I plugged in, took a walk and then ran back to the car.. too cold and too windy, and it was starting to rain. I put the seat back and took a short nap.. by 9:45am I had 266 miles in the car.
I glided off to El Reno at 9:45. What a way to get a jump on the day. This was my longest leg. 91 miles out of Oklahoma city I saw my first New Mexico plate !! and it wasn’t on a pickup !! I’ve been passed by lots of big pickups with big engines that growl as they go by. At 12:50pm I pulled into the El Reno KOA to charge. The guy there couldn’t wait to see what I was driving. He just couldn’t believe it ! “All electric ?? No gas ??” “It’s pretty good looking too !”
Now I’m just waiting for enough miles to get me to Elk City early so I can leave early in the morning to make it to Albuquerque for dinner..and a squeeze..
It’s 7pm and I’m in my Kabin in Elk City with 118 miles in the car.
One last night in these places.. This is the luxury version. It’s got a bathroom and a shower !! If the car charges fast, (28 MPH right now. that’s good), I can leave early and be in Amarillo before they open, charging to get to Tucumcari, NEW MEXICO !!!
