My daughter Kyra and I drove 590 miles in our leased 2020 Chevy Bolt today from Littleton, Colo. to Cedar City, Utah. It was the first leg of a 2,400-mile round trip road trip from our home Littleton, Colo. to my sister's home in Goleta, Calif.
Three years ago, my two daughters and I did a 2,400-mile round-trip road trip in my leased 2017 Chevy Bolt from our home in Littleton, Colo. to my sister's family's home in Goleta, Calif.
I was envisioning feeling triumphant when we got to my sister's in Goleta, Calif., three days, and 1,200 miles, after starting our long-distance road trip in our all-electric Chevy Bolt in Littleton, Colo.In fact, I did feel pretty triumphant driving the final leg of our trip from Victorville, Calif. to Goleta, Calif., which is about a 170-mile drive. Although we hit some "bumps" along the way -- including a confrontation I had with another Chevy Bolt driver at a EV-Go DC fast charger in Victorville today after he unplugged me while I was in the mall with my kids -- it felt pretty good to be zooming along California 101, on a beautiful late July evening as the sun set on the Pacific ocean.
