Wild Horse Owner Drive - Test Run
October 5, 2009

Last Updated October 20, 2009

Scott Ferguson and his Roadster joined us for a test run for our planned Roadster owner drive to Puget Sound Energy's Wild Horse Renewable Energy Center. We wanted to test drive the route, get information on how much charging we would need to get back home, meet the folks at the center, and arrange for catering, parking, etc. (We also took photos on the October 18 owner drive.)

Our Roadster perched over a row of windmills.

The windmills are quite large, 200 feet tall!

Charging at the Ellensburg KOA Kampground.

We're plugged into adjacent hook-ups.

Scott's charger was getting hot, so we swapped sides and Scott improvised a method for holding the lid open to impove cooling of the aging electrical box.
 

Charging criss-crossed with the electrical box lid held open.
