We're on an emergency 2,000 mile round trip to Oregon but thought I'd share an unusual sight.
Approximately half way between Silicon Valley and Los Angeles on I-5 there are few gasoline fueling stops and an electric car would not have the range to make the 500 mile trip. At the C-198 off ramp lies the giant Harris Ranch Beef feedlot with 10's of thousands of cows waiting to be made into steaks.
Harris Ranch wisely built a very large motor hotel, Olympic sized pool, bar and 3 restaurants, than serve dry rubbed Prime steaks and has some real nice bathrooms. You can smell the cows (and the money) in the air.
It's a must stop on that long desolate drive.
Tesla thought so too, so after some negotiations the Harris Ranch parking lot has a Tesla electric charging station.
While you are having your prime rib-eye steak french dipped sandwich for lunch your Tesla is having a fill-up too.
That is a smart company.
