EV trip report: Hurricane Ridge

Thu Jun 18, 2015 8:39 am

From near sea level to near tree level.

We drove from home near Seattle to the DCQC at Campbell-Nelson Nissan, arriving with a 76% and leaving with a 93% charge level.
Waited and waited for a ferry to cross Puget Sound to Kingston, then drove (heavy traffic, so less than speed limit) to Sequim, arriving with 48% and stopping for a charge while we ate dinner. Continued on to a B&B that offers L1 charging, and will soon be offering L2.

Left the next morning from about 30 feet elevation with a full charge for Hurricane Ridge, elevation 5,242 feet and 35 miles away. Arrived with 6 miles on the GOM and 22% on the battery. 35 miles to go, how is that going to work with only 6 miles remaining? :lol:

Return trip was 18 miles of descent, gaining charge to 41% and a lot of miles on the GOM, didn't write it down. Finished at the B&B with 21% remaining.

Trip to home was a drive at mostly speed limit to the ferry, then to the DCQC, arriving one mile after low battery alarm, charged to 60% and returned home.

All percentages are on a 2014 SL using the dashboard indicator, not a cellphone app.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

So you can conclude your 2014 can make trips your 2012 could not?
