Driving an EV across Ohio and back, part 1 of?

This may end up being all in one day, but I am not sure yet so I won't promise. My trip is Cincy to Cleveland and back. For those forever confused by the 'C' cities in Ohio, these two are the good one and the one with the Browns, respectively. They also happen to be on opposite corners of the state. This will be about 600 miles.

Driving is tomorrow. This is the prelude, in which I share a top secret EV road trip skill. An essential skill that has mysteriously eluded auto journalists many times: I fully charge the car before leaving on a long trip. The Polestar 2 I am driving is a car we have for lab use; I snagged it for this trip last minute and it happens to be at a somewhat low state of charge, 24%.

Check here for the rest of Part 1.
