[A] It appears we were charged different rates based on the speed of the charge. Speed changes based on # of others charging at the same time.
[C] Chargers are supposed to be provided in even numbers, but I could only see 7. Also, some appear to be tempermental (i.e. Jim couldn't get them to work and others had the same experience.)
[D] Can't figure out why we're getting free charging.
Fri, Dec 31, 2021: -- This trip is taking significant mental effort! We think it's a combo of technology overload/new paradigm, winter driving, and Wyoming (which is mostly just nothing + wind). Like most trips, we often feel most comfortable after we've used the restroom and eaten :) -- The fastest we've driven today is 86 mph (passing). -- Jim says his confidence has been increasing all day in terms of the car's ability to handle snow.
Jan 1, 2022 8:50 am PT: Is sunny, cold (4F), and the roads are clear. Jim is using Auto Pilot for the first time on the highway. He said it favors the left side of the lane (or maybe he's always favored the right side?). He has to keep his hands on the steering wheel. We just went around a big curve and he said it took the curve faster than he would and he just turned it off to go thru a tunnel. My assessment is that it's a very impressive feature, but a bit unnerving. I think I said before that our friends describe the Auto Pilot feature as having the skills of a teenager who shouldn't be on the road yet.
