Hi all. Anybody driven on one full charge from Wenatchee to Seattle? Or more specifically, from Wenatchee to the Bremerton area.

I have not, but I'm wondering why a charge stop isn't in the plans, at least as a contingency?

I'd take Rt 2 to Monroe, then 522 to 405 to 5 to the Edmonds ferry, then Kingston to destination. It looks like you can just drive it. About 160 miles on the road.

Plan B: If below about 60 miles of range when passing the AAA charger, stop in and charge for 10 or 20 minutes. Several other choices, soon to be many more. Stop, stretch legs, get a coffee. No CCS units after the ferry, so make sure you arrive at the ferry with enough range.

Plan C: if AAA is broken, busy, ICEd or otherwise not taken:

Plan D: Find a L2. Plugshare is your friend.

Depending on when you drive it, several EA sites should be open soon. Such as

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

Can't sit in a Bolt seat, hoping for better soon.
Or perhaps a Buick version? Buick Electra 225???

Thanks for all that; much appreciated. I'm actually coming down from Canada on Hwy 97. So now I've got a plan to top up a bit on a level 2 charger just before the border (no level 3 there yet) and then I can make Wenatchee no problem; pretty flat landscape to that point (140 miles, 226 K). My plan now is to stop at North Bend at the Premium Outlets chargers as I head toward the coast. I'll do a full charge there at a fast charger and make it to my destination (Port Orchard) easily (70 miles).
