Welcome to Knoxville 馃檪. Our level 2 charging infrastructure has been going up like crazy in downtown. There are a few in garages (free on weekends) a short walk from the Ice Bears rink. Knoxville鈥檚 EA station has been having some issues lately, with 1 to 2 of their chargers being down most of the time. The one outside of Chattanooga has been pretty reliable
What they need is an eight-stall pull-through EA plaza at Bimbo's Fireworks/Deli/Gas Emporium on I-75 at Lenoir City.

Yeah we have done this at 65 mph a lot actually for long trips. Find a 65mph calm truck or semi, follow with ACC set at the furthest distance (so not helping with wind resistance but thats okay). Faster cars / trucks stay on the left lane. Then my mind can wander, have deep conversations with passengers or even karaoke :ROFLMAO: So far so good no cracked windshield (YET! 馃)
Speaking as a former truck driver, we don't mind four-wheelers following as long as they don't hang off our trailer tandems. If you can't see the driver's face in his mirrors, he can't see you. And that makes him nervous. And maybe he'll light up his brakes with a wee tap on the trailer brakes, just to back you off.
The trick here is to draft a union driver. They get paid by the hour, and are usually speed-monitored by computer: Schneider. Roadway. Wal-Mart. It's the owner-operators and small independents--flashy Kenworths, Western Stars, and Peterbilts with beetle-brow chrome sunshades--that you want to avoid. Those guys get paid by the mile, and the more they can roll up without running afoul the logbooks the more money they make.
