Made a trip to Lafayette this past weekend, one of my dad's good friends unexpectedly passed away. Him and his wife were the family friends we met for lunch in Baton Rouge when we went to Fort Benning back in October (they'd driven over from Lafayette to meet us).
Lafayette doesn't have much in the way of Tesla charging options, mostly auto dealerships (only accessible during business hours, so unavailable when we'd have been able to use them), RV camp sites, and an Electrify America (VW's penalty for dieselgate) site at Walmart which is one of the locations that doesn't support my car (only has CCS and CHAdeMO options, if it had J1772 I could have used it). None of the hotels had destination charging either, so we stopped at Lake Charles for lunch on the drive over and charged to 100%. From there to Lafayette was about 80 miles at highway speeds, and we had about 200 miles of range left when we got back to the hotel Saturday night.
I turned on the new Sentry Mode at the hotel.
Like Texas, charging in Louisiana is by the minute rather than kWh. Without any destination charging, and having to charge to 100% (which takes about twice as long as charging to 80%) with per minute charging, it ended up costing $16.51 for about a 500 mile round trip. In contrast the trip to Fort Benning was $17.00 for ~730 miles (that's just to get there, didn't look at usage while at Fort Benning, nor for the return trip).
I ran over some debris on I-10 that bounced up and put a dent in the driver door and the strip below. The scratch on the door is 2" (dent itself is larger) and the scratch on the strip is 4". When it occurred we thought for sure I'd punctured a tire, but I don't see any damage to it or the rim.
