Family trip to Monterey in our EVs

In 2016 we drove our Rav4 EV for a weekend of fun in Monterey. This year we took our Model Y. We miss the Rav, but we’re definitely enjoying the Model Y.

Family Trips in an EV

Visiting Redwood trees in the Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve.

We’ve gone on many family trips in our EVs over the past 8 years. This post focuses on family, not the cars. Main point: if you get an EV family trips will still be family trips.

We visited the Grand Canyon during my kids’ spring break. Driving 800 miles in one day was easy thanks to Superchargers.

Model Y Road Trip to Crater Lake National Park

Last week we took our Model Y on a short road trip to visit Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. It was a relatively short 350 miles one way, but long enough to get a feel for driving the Model Y on longer road trips.

Camping Trips in the Rav4 EV

The Rav4 EV seats 5 and has a large storage compartment behind the rear seats that can store everything you’ll need for a weekend camping trip. I’ve written two posts about camping with the Rav: One describes our first camping trip over 6 years ago, and the second post describes more of our camping adventures in Rav4 EV.
