Week 6

So last week was an interesting week:

 

We did the longest and wettest drive so far and went to a Yorkshire EV Club meetup.. 


So apart from a trip to Leeds last week, during the week, and the seemingly daily trip to Starbucks, yes I like my coffee

 

On Saturday the missus decided we should have a trip to York and the Designer Outlet, so 90 mile round trip for Haribo and Joe Browns, as well as Harry Potter shops in York and some grub, on a rare day off together....
I started the day with a whisker under 80% and got to York the scenic way and not up the hell of the M1 and the A64 preferring to skirt Donny, Pontefract and following the blue route 

 

 

We got to York before the Heavens opened, but as soon as we got on the Park and Ride bus into York the heavens opened up and didn't stop until we walked in the door  car had gone from 80ish% to 56% not bad for  42.7miles  the fun was to come on our way home with the torrential downpour. 

Coming back down the  A64 /A1M, as it had been a long and we where both soaked  but fed, watered and shopped out.... we hit the full force of the weather, and after a stop at Morrison to grab a few Movie night essentials and some tea, we made our way back home... We did try the Genie Point charger at Morrisons Brampton, but it refused to take any card, so we gave up. 


The return journey took the car from 56% to 18% but we did have the heating on to demist the windows and to warm us up, and we where so glad of heated seats....

 

A quick run upto Fox Valley to get milk etc from Aldi (as I totally forgot doh! ) and a quick charge for 30minutes at the InstaVolts and then back home had us from 12% to 50%ish and ready for the week ahead....

 

Went to the Yorkshire EV Club meet at Elsecar Heritage centre wihich was a bit of an unorganised mess, but saw Ioniq 5, wow what a big car, and I dont like it its not as nice as the original :P  Saw the Mach-E what a beautiful fast car, but again massive.
