Starting to plan a trip from NJ (Princeton/Trenton) to the Outer Banks in NC for the yearly family vacation. I'd love to roll in there with the Bolt to the surprise of my family members.

On the way down it should be easy because we're splitting it up into two days. I will probably stop at one of the four Royal Farms ChargePoint 50 kW stations in northern / central Delaware to top off while we have lunch, and we found a nice B&B with a level 2 charger a bit north of the Chesapeake Bay bridge/tunnel that will allow me to get a full charge overnight and enough range to make it to NC the next day.

We're planning on doing the return in one day and this makes it a little more difficult, but not too bad. Total distance is around 390 miles. If I want to make it back to the Royal Farms stations in Delaware, I have to go between 211 and 250 miles. According to PlugShare, there is one station at a Courtyard hotel in Chesapeake, VA that is 70 miles out from our starting point. I might stop off here for breakfast and to pack on a few insurance miles (if the charger is open and functional), then hit one of the last Royal Farms stations in Delaware and have lunch, which should give me more than enough range to get home.

Also, thanks to everyone on this forum! It has been a great resource for me.

Both rest stops in Maryland going south 0n I 95 have free CCS chargers that worked good last time I checked. You can't beat free.

Thanks. I thought about taking the I-95 route, but that adds about 60 miles and adds the added hassle of driving around Richmond, DC, and Baltimore instead of putzing through rural Delaware.

I'm going to plan out a trip on that route, however, just to compare.

Along with the Plugstations you can also use WeCHar app to find the nearest charging point. There are others few apps also to find the nearest location. It always handy to installed 2-3 apps if one of them not working properly
