We hope to continue growing and be able to afford the lambo in our fleet when the lucky owner decides to sell it 🙂

Is that Lambo TVR Black?

Ah TVR, be still my pounding heart 😀😎

Which one?

63 hours into the trip of a lifetime. 33 hours to go. We believe in you girls!!! 💪🏻
#4girls4days #worldrecord #teslaLeg 19 to 22
Paule continues as driver and Sascha stays next to her. We travel from Lauenau to Kamen, which is an extra stop to charge faster. Marie is vast asleep in the back.
It feels a bit as if we are sitting in a little glass time capsule. By now we have lost track of the days, the time and what happened in which order. Time seems to be flying by and when we discuss something that happened yesterday it appears as if it was just an hour ago. In short, we are seriously mixed up, but still going strong.
In a way doing this record is a real Mindfulness session. We are consciously 100% in the present, aware and focussed on only one task: getting to Tarifa before midnight on 12 June.
So if you are encountering too much stress, try driving an electric vehicle with the lowest consumption possible!

Leg 20
From Kamen to Erftstadt Marie is driving with Paule next to her. In Erftstadt we have to charge because of the distance we need to cover after that to Luxembourg without any other supercharger options. On the screen that we have in the car, which is larger than an average tablet, we can neatly see all the available superchargers. The system even puts in an extra one if you are trying to cover too much distance.
Now that we are on the Tesla supercharger network, loading has become a piece of cake, with the standard cable available at the charging pole. As soon as you get out of this charging station network the story becomes problematic. Countries have different systems, standards, plugs and cables. You should see the amount of cables we have in the trunk to be prepared for possible worst case scenarios.
Europe, get your act together and solve this!! The first cars probably did not all have the same fuel intake and somehow we managed to standardise that around the globe.
And then there is the payment for the electricity you use. Tesla has standardised this. For the type 2 and fast chargers, every country also has a different system and mostly only available in the local language.
So you better come prepared.
Luckily there is a whole social network of experienced travellers who are always whiling to help with advise and experiences. One of them is Rafael who has traveled around the world in his Tesla. He lend us his special cable for the type 2 charger in northern Norway. Today he is awaiting us at the charger in Erftstadt with camera and drone! He really would like us to make the record and is driving along to Luxembourg to cheer us on. How sweet that is! Thanks 80edays!!!

Leg 21
Sascha drives from Erftstadt to Luxembourg, with Marie navigating. We leave Germany and can cross of country number four off the list. Only three to go.
In Luxembourg a really warm welcome is awaiting us. We get a loud applause when getting out of the car. There is food and drinks and for each of us there is a room in the neighbouring hotel Légère where we can have a quick shower. That is a real treat after 2,5 days in the car and temperatures of 30 degrees today.
Christa, who helped to drive the car up north, is accompanying us to the hotel rooms and guarding the time. Back down we even manage time for some pictures and chats. Thank you all so much for making this such a memorable charging stop!!!

Leg 22
From Luxembourg we continue to Metz, where we have a crucial charge, because after that we need to cover 320 kilometres to Beaune, without other fast charging options along the way. The superchargers are located in a huge Leclerq parking lot along the highway, which is completely empty on a Sunday and where the sun is burning on the black asphalt.
We get a bit annoyed because the charging is really slow, already starting at an unusual low rate of 90 Wh/h and slowing down rapidly. After some phone calls it turns out that different countries have enforced different maximum charging speeds. Norway and Denmark were top with maxima of around 120-130. France is clearly lower. This can reduce our chances to make it.
Another point were we have to urge Europe to get their act together. Standardise the charging speeds!!! And at the highest levels please.
After a torturing full hour of charging (this took only have an hour in other countries), we decide to leave with 8% battery, which is risky, but should be doable.
Luckily Paule's boyfriend Vincent pays us a surprise visit at the stop with cool drinks, tomato & mozzarella salad and fruits to help us through the wait. If you didn't already love him you would immediately fall in love. Thanks Vincent!!!
