I am planning a trip from Carmel Ca to Paso Robles via CA Hwy 1. I would be interested in hearing from Model S owners who have actually made the trip. Is it possible to reach Atascadero (the closest Super Charging station to Paso Robles and the Far Out wineries) on a full 85kwh charge? Hwy 1 through Big Sur has many fairly steep hills with lots of hairpin turns. The road from CA Hwy 1 over to US 101 has a long steep grade over the coastal mountains.
