Just to be 100% clear: "Full Stack" is bullshit. It means you're looking to pay someone once for two jobs, and/or it means you want someone mediocre at both. Back end and front end are very different types of skills, and it's damned near impossible to specialize in both while staying current on new developments. If someone _can_ do it, you should be paying them well north of 200.

330mi, 6h35, 51mph. 3.1 mi/kWh. Lots of elevation change and construction in that last leg.

“Less banana, more driving, asshole.” - things I just said in the parking lot of the Island City OR Walmart.

Stop 3/4. Even electrics can be self centered assholes who park in the driving lane.

Got a burger at A&W. Resisted giant donuts. Barely.

Arrived in Hermiston. Same charger problem. Seems to be the 350kw units don’t like my car. Stick to the 150kw units.

Hm. I remember chips ahoy being bigger. Stupid capitalism, ruining my snack food and childhood.

I am going to eat a cookie and you are powerless to stop me.

Maybe several cookies.

Next stop will be Hermiston OR. There’s an A&W attached to Space Age Fuel, so that will probably be lunch.

(I did not end up with a taco)

On the plus side, I’m more or less right on schedule according to ABRP. Maybe a couple minutes behind. Not bad at all.

Oh, the poor things. They have to keep the store open, but they’re out of almost everything. And apparently I’m the first person to tell this young lady that it wasn’t her fault.

Anyway. Now I’ve got half an hour at a Taco Bell I’m Ellensburg. Maybe I’ll go buy a taco and use the restroom. Not in that order.

ABRP thinks I should be at 27%, but I arrived at 47. I may need to adjust its assumptions about my car’s consumption rate.

Charge stop 1. Assuming the charger ever decides to work.

So, of course, didn’t get to sleep before midnight and woke up at 6:20. Thanks, brain.

An 8am departure puts me at the hotel at a quarter after six, with _no_ stops other than charging, and I know reality is going to take longer than that, so I don't want to get started any later than I have to.
