the thing about nyc is that I can’t decide if this is an accident or maybe an art installation…

ktistec uses sqlite as its datastore. it’s a smart idea to back up the sqlite database periodically. unfortunately you can’t just copy the database file, at least while the server is running.

this article explains how to make a backup safely, and how to set up automatic, scheduled backups with cron.

charging hasn’t been a problem. there have been chargers every 100 miles or so with only a few exceptions—at least on our route through washington, idaho, montana … indiana (so far). many/most have been located at places like shopping centers, rather than gas stations, however which makes breaks less convenient. note: on the toll roads east of chicago the service areas have chargers, which is an improvement.

fargo north dakota

there’s excellent tesla charger coverage through north dakota. generally, we drive for ~120 minutes and then charge for 15-20 minutes. that feels like about twice as often as a gas-powered car but it hasn’t been a problem. and frequent breaks have been nice.

i spent the night in glendive montana, which is both the town i was born in and a town i probably haven’t been back to since. it is both raining heavily and blowing hard. the wind i remember, the heavy rain i don’t remember. at the moment it feels like the coast of alabama after a hurricane, which is 180° off from the arid eastern prairies of my childhood memories.
