    Everyone saying this vlog was amazing and beautiful, I'm going to say this. I watch a lot of videos like this by car-channel UScliprs and this whole experience would've gone a lot different than this had they done this drive. More risky challenges taken, less worry about the things you worried about, more prepared for the possibilities, etc, etc. Though the other commenters are right in that this video was beautiful, I do feel it was a bit more dramatized than I anticipated, solely because I've seen automotive UScliprs do far more risky things with Teslas and other cars. Trust me, I know this was a world of an experience for you, and I do sympathize, don't get that confused, I would've been mostly the same way had I been in your shoes during this trip, and THIS WAS A VERY INTERESTING AND ENTERTAINING VIDEO I thoroughly enjoyed it, gave it "like" and everything. But had it been an automotive USclipr this would've gone quite different. Nice job jumping into a different pool for this video. (the automotive journalist pool) I still greatly enjoyed it.

    So if you have lots of time to be inconvenienced by your car, a Tesla is a good purchase. Right.

    When you said "Feedee, Utah" or however you pronounced Nephi at 33:51... it's actually pronounced NEE-fy (fy rhymes with pie). (Unless you were talking about Fountain Green or Freedom, but those don't seem to be where you're indicating on the map, and they're down a different road.) Glad you made it! Nice to see you could visit Dead Horse Point--such pretty views. Thanks for the informative vlog.

    If I had the funds... I would own an electric car for in city driving, but for the road trips I take, I would own a traditional gasoline powered car. The reason being, those long multiple hundred mile stretches of road with nothing in between are a whole lot less scary with a couple of large jerry cans of extra fuel in the back.

    I love electric cars and believe they are the future of cars, but until charging stations are at least as common as gas stations, I will continue to trust a gasoline engine for a trip like this.
