This summer, Aii founder Brigham McCown embarked on a cross-country road trip in his Tesla Model 3. Starting from Washington state, he made a coast-to-coast drive all the way to Washington, D.C. In addition to seeing the nation’s beauty and bounty, he learned a number of lessons along the way.

Take a look at this Aii cross country road trip video blog and comment on YouTube and social media with your thoughts and questions!

Brigham was lucky to find a number of hotels and restaurants that provided free charging. In total, Brigham spent $319.56 in charging fees, along with 22 stops that took around an average of half an hour each.
