I made a failed attempt to drive 65 miles up 4,000ft and back down 6,000ft in -15°F weather. I made it 30 miles and had about 21% left when I hit the only place on the highway that has cell service. I had lost about 30% in the last 5 miles going up a steep incline. So I called a tow truck. I have AAA. Thankfully I could then turn up the heat and wait for the truck.

I am curious, do you live in one of the areas that AAA has a truck with a DC Quick Charging EVSE on it? I know we have a few around us, but I have been told that it is usually faster to just get towed to the nearest charging station.

No. DC quick charging doesn't exist in my part of the country, neither on AAA trucks nor at charging stations. There's a Level 2 charging station about every 60 miles along the most driven routes, and none along the other routes.

Yuck, that would stink, I think those of us that live in Southern California take it for granted that we are rarely more than about 10 miles from a charging station and probably never more than about 15 to 20 miles from a quick charger.

You also don't get -15F temperatures.
