    Quick Utah native corrections lol... 32:18 - "Deseret" actually means "beehive," not desert (that's why Utah is called the "Beehive State"). 33:50 - "Nephi" is pronounced "knee-fi" like wifi but knee-fi. But otherwise, really great vlog!! San Jose, Donner Pass, Utah, St. George, Vegas, and Southern California are all places I've loved traveling through! Also I'm from St. George so I would love to see your stop there! Really great homage to driving in the west, really. I loved this.

    I wonder if his trip would have been shorter if he would have realized that he could increase the charge current from the default of 40A to 50A that the electrical service could provide. And a side trip to the Gigafactory in Reno would have been cool too.

    So when did it get worse? Looks like to made to a charging spot every single time and the car calculated the battery's range for you pretty well. I was waiting to find out what tragic event happened and why you had anxiety driving the speed limit with no traffic to cause stress.

    u guys piss me off so much. this was an amazing video. but you shit all over vidcon as if the one chance for your fans to connect with you is so beneath you and so affecting you like as if your fans don't have serious depression and agoraphobia or fear of being awkward with people. You think you're some exception to the rest of humanity that the biggest thing you fear is meeting new people or your fans. fuck off seriously. your a normal person and your fans are mostly normal people who probably most of them are overcoming their own fears of meeting you. this whole culture of its okay to bilk so much dough from fans yet shun vidcon or any other sort of fan appreciation aspects of your life, is complete bullshit. your bad and you should feel fucking bad, and the fact that i know you feel bad doesn't change the fact that you should feel more bad for biting the hand that feeds you.

    Man. This is the 2nd vid of yours I've watched. Should I tell you something... At the end I dropped a tear and felt like I'm packing up today, drop out of university tomorrow and move to the USA the after I've said goodbye to my loved ones. Leave Europe, leave my family and LIVE the american dream. My childhood dream would come true. I'm so sorry that I have to finish my studies and work hard before I only get a chance to move there.
    You made this video so I felt like I was there. It was so emotional. Really big thumbs up! Definetly gonna search up your podcast.
    (For those of you who read this, sorry for the grammar.)

    On one road trip, I made the same mistake the OP made, thinking I could make it to my destination in one go. During that trip, I drove 17 hours straight. In the latter stages of that leg, I had the FUN experience of driving the winding, tree-lined roads of the Missouri Ozarks after dark while half-asleep. I was lucky to make it out. Moral of the story: While driving solo on a road trip, if you feel you must rest, then REST. Don't push yourself. Just DON'T DO IT.
    PS: I consider the portion of Interstate 70 between I-15 and Grand Junction to be the SECOND loneliest road in America. 250 miles of NOTHING, save Green River. It was a supercharger desert the OP probably didn't plan for.
