The first LONG trip

We got the roof rack and cargo carrier on Mini E #458 and headed off for the New Year's holiday. We stopped and used other fast charger's along the way and then the slow charger when we were far from New Jersey. Thanks to Ken and Amy, Joyce and Tom, Stephen and Phyllis and others for letting us charge on the way. I guess 200 miles in one day is not that much but without public infrastructure for fast charging, it was an adventure.

Not much impact on range from the roof top cargo carrier when driving reasonably slowly. Still getting 100+ plus mile range by also taking it easy on the heater. A lap blanket does wonders in addition to tricks mentioned in earlier posts.
