Day 5: Goodbye Austin, Hello Baton Rouge
We say goodbye to the Fisker Ocean in Austin and make our option to Baton Rouge on a 429 mile journey for the day.
Today, we continued our journey to Walt Disney World in our electrical automobile after seeing the Fisker Ocean yesterday. While we’re unhappy to go away the electrical SUV behind, we’re completely happy to be sooner or later nearer to Walt Disney World. We left this morning at 8:30am and arrived in Baton Rouge simply earlier than 5:30pm. The site visitors out of Austin was horrible as was going into the town yesterday. We have by no means seen a metropolis with so many automobiles. Traffic in all places. The Baton Rouge entrance is an in depth second.
Passing by Houston, TX
Now, driving by Houston was a lot better. Cars flowed by the town and it has a really lovely skyline. However, we acquired confused with Interstate 10 after we entered the town. This freeway all through Houston has particular toll lanes and a few which can be free. Unknowingly, we virtually drove by a toll lane. There had been so many indicators going by downtown that it was just a little overwhelming. It’s clear that we reached our vacation spot, but it surely undoubtedly makes you marvel when you’re going the fitting approach or not. One good factor is that the I-10 freeway signal is painted on the bottom to assist guests select the fitting route.
Arrival in Baton Rouge, LA
The drive to Louisiana and Baton Rouge was very scenic. There are loads of wetlands, bogs and marshes to see to assist move the time. The bridges look fairly cool too. Our favourite was most likely the final bridge in Baton Rouge to be constructed over the Mississippi River. As we walked up the bridge, we acquired to look at all types of boats going up and down the river. It was fairly a sight to behold. We additionally confronted quite a lot of site visitors. The City of Baton Rouge is warning motorists heading into the town to count on site visitors delays. It took us about 1 hour and quarter-hour to go the final 30 miles into city, however we made it…slowly!
Charing in the present day was a breeze
We needed to cease at three chargers in the present day on our option to Baton Rouge. First, we charged 54 kWh in Columbus, TX at $0.35/kWh for $18.90. Second, we stopped in Beaumont, TX and charged 30 kWh at $0.34/kWh for $10.20. Finally, we loaded up tonight in Baton Rouge, LA after dinner at Jason’s Deli to get the electrical automobile prepared for tomorrow’s experience. This was a bit unusual as we had been charged by the minute versus kWh. We had been charged $1.61 for the primary 7 minutes at $0.23/min. We had been then charged $17.60 for the following 40 minutes at $0.44/min.
