It all started with me noticing that EVs were becoming more prevalent on the road but also in news and social outlets. Hearing the buzz words range anxiety really made me want to investigate what it was like for EV drivers navigating the urban, suburban, and rural landscape. Like with anything new, growth and expansion for the charging network is slow... but getting there.

I have over 1,300 road miles under my belt just for this project.
I attended an EV Festival.
I became an EV ambassador.
I watched a lot of YouTube videos.
