And for the trip to Port Hardy, BC, there are a fair number of 100 Amp and 80 Amp 240V/208V Sun Country charging stations. Not much else.
Or the 48A in Republic WA. And the 70A in Omak WA. And the 70A in Winthrop, WA. Or the two 68A at Hobuck Beach Resort, Neah Bay, WA.
It would be nice to stop at the Hospitality Inn in Port Alberni, BC, and eat lunch while the car charges at 70A/208V. 14.5kW. Or stay the night, for that matter, and need half as much charging time.
The bay area has very few and 40A plus charging locations. I have only come across one ever. As demand grows for stations I expect the kw to be restricted more to allow for capacity issues. Many companies are installing L1 over L2 because of capacity VS available slots for commuters that work all day. Our DC is pretty weak as well, relatively speaking.
