TeslaXCanada continues…

Okay, I took a little ‘Blogging break’ after our cross Canada trip, hanging out around Nova Scotia and enjoying a beautiful Indian Summer in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont – even visiting as far South as Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. The Indian Summer had been on our bucket list, just like the cross Canada trip. Just like that cross-country trip, we never thought we’d do it in a 100% electric car with camping trailer.😉


Adding some of my Indian Summer photos to this post, taken all over the New England States these past few weeks.

During that time, we kept asking ourselves, what next? Continue reading

Ken & Anne, Hillsboro OR

Ken commented on our 11th Electric Week post on August 31:

“We loved reading your blog and seeing the videos. If I was able to post a picture here it would be of the EV we brought home today; a 2016 Kia Soul EV+, fueled from our 6.12 kWh solar array. It’s parked next to our Highlander Hybrid “road trip” car. We have long been inspired and your adventure sets our goals a little higher. Thank you for sharing it.”

Here’s his photo, which Ken later emailed to us. Thank you, Ken and Anne, for your kind words. Great to hear you’re running electric and solar! Happy and safe EV travelling to you both and tons of sunshine!😉 Rolf & Silke


Please share your EV or solar story with us! Simply email TeslaXCanada@gmail.com with your story and photo. Thank you!

12th Electric Week: Newfoundland

We made it! After a week driving from Channel-Port aux Basques to St. John’s, we arrived at our final destination: Thanks to Jon Seary and his family, we got a convoy to Mile Zero where we were welcomed by Deputy Mayor Ron Ellsworth.


Mile Zero in St. John’s NL: I’m standing on the dot, Rolf has one foot at Cape Spear and Kye sits on Victoria BC😉

11th Electric Week: New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia

What a whirlwind week this last one has been. So sad that we have to rush, but ‘Argentia-Ferry and Campground Season’ in Newfoundland will be over soon, so we have to get going.

All three provinces will stay with me as a time when I could walk Kye again the way he deserves it. It simply so happened that there were always trails close to our campgrounds. I’m very, very glad and grateful for that! I cherish those first-thing-in-the-morning walks with Kye, they are my ‘mediation in motion’. I miss Victoria BC the most when I can’t have that. Kye has been an amazing travel companion, never heard ‘are we there yet?!’😉 , not even a peep, and we have to thank him for so many, many laughs.

Loving my walks with Kye!

New Brunswick

We wish we could have spent more time in New Brunswick. Given that it borders on Quebec, it’s surprising to see the difference in EV coverage and charging infrastructure. Continue reading
