We make it to Ashland with a few
miles to spare. Our room at the Palm
Hotel offers a free 240-volt charger.

use the single 50-kilowatt charger in the
town of Mt. Shasta, but nearby there's
a bank of 20 Tesla Superchargers-a
hint of things to come. Before we get
back on the interstate, we make a quick
detour up Mount Shasta itself. The Audi
handles the ascent with ease. From our
lofty vantage point near the peak, the
horizon never appeared so close. ‚óŹ
