Well, hopefully with all that we won't be reading about any more trickle charging on his trip. :o Seems like he might benefit from a working Leaf Spy Pro setup as well. He does seem to be getting lots of help from people which is great

I see that EVolve KY sticker! That's my local group. I was in contact with Brian when he passed through KY about a possible tree in my yard but he'd already passed my city by the time I got in touch that day.

I was also a bit concerned about how was (not) outfitted- I'd think a complete selection of adapters to be able to charge from any source would be the first item on the packing list after the EVSE! I see he stopped off at Steve of Autobeyours.com fame in Indiana, I got my Prius from him.

He did get there? I too talked to them a couple of times when I owned my Prius. I did not see that stop when looking at:

but he did come through Indiana rather quickly and in the middle of the night...

I saw a couple pictures of the Prius limo on his blog, so I assume that he stopped off there.

I was there only once so I can't say if that is the side of the building in that photo or not. They do have a charge station there, just surprised if he was there he did not register charging there... But no matter. And I agree with Tony Schaefer on that "car/truck/limo"- its prugly.

Ah yes, it was a Pruck. I didn't look again at the photo before posting. I can confirm that that is his building, as well as the "Priustoric" boat/Prius in the second photo above the Pruck.

Relevant is also the fact that Steve made a Leaf limo too. Not sure what the current status of it is.

I wonder if he is only checking in on stations listed on that website, Steve's might not be. I can tell you that his trip through KY is definitely missing some check-ins based on mileage alone, never mind the stop in Frankfort that he was messaging me during.
