: "Electric cars are only good for local travel." In the past four weekends I have driven my EV to Burlington, Middlebury, Vergennes, and St. Albans, VT. Across Lake Champlain on the Essex/Charlotte Ferry, to the top of Mount Greylock in MA, over Petersburg pass to North Adams, MA, to the Lake George Elvis festival, even internationally up through Montreal and Charlemagne, QC. That's about 1,400 miles for about $13.30 in electricity.
Essex, NY/ Charlotte, VT Ferry. Another all electric day trip up north and back for a total of 288.5 miles.
Another Lake Champlain Ferry is seen here going in the opposite direction towards Charlotte, VT.
I couldn't resist this photo opportunity in historic Essex, NY.
Nice new ChargePoint station at 585 Pine St. in Burlington, VT. There are two Level 2 J1772 chargers and a brand new Level 3 Fuji Fast charger. I met a LEAF driver there who was trying out the new 440V DC CHAdeMO charger for the first time. Impressive!
I really enjoyed our trip to Mt. Greylock last fall, so I went back again to the highest point in MA a few weekends ago.
My first charge in Canada was under the Palais des Congrès Hotel in 'Old' Montreal.
This was in Charlemage, which is about 40 minutes north of Montreal. This round trip was 650 miles.
