Hello, my name is Ken and I created a YouTube channel called E-Hermes to discuss electric adventure travel. I began with a Tesla Model Y (because that is what I could get at the time) and have been very happy with it. I placed an order for a Rivian R1-T when they were first announced and expected it to be our next vehicle in the fleet. I also made a reservation for a Cyber Truck and finally the Lightning. Since I am holding out for the 400 mile range Rivian I will not get that until next year, the Cyber Truck is still at least a year away but my Lighting is in production and I hope to take delivery of it in the next few weeks. When I do I will be posting videos of traveling with it including a comparison of traveling from northeast Ohio to Sanibel Florida both alone and pulling a trailer. This is a trip of 1,250 miles each way which I have made three times with the Model Y (once pulling a trailer). The extended range Lightning is rated at 320 miles and so is my Model Y, but the battery is nearly twice a large (72 kWh versus 131 kWh) so I want to see how much longer it takes on a long trip to refill the battery.
