Senior citizen drives Volt almost 4,000 miles in less than 5 days, followed by drone!

Amazing, a drone (probably from the NSA "NonSence Association") tracking a suspicious looking senior citizen driving a fast Volt, along parts of Route 66 and other points out west.

Note, speed limits in Texas are 75 MPH except on Interstate 10 from Kerr County to El Paso County where it is 80 MPH (and TxDOT is planning on raising that to 85 MPH...) My wife and I rotated driving duties and "nap sessions" which allowed us to cover a lot of miles in less than 5 days and we spent 3 nights only in hotels.

And I still meet people who believe a Volt can only go about 50 miles before it has to stop and be recharged ALL DAY back to a full charge.

It's not possible. He got his kicks on Route 66 which is a two lane road with stop lights. Even if you assume an average speed of 50 MPH then it would require 19 hours of driving not including stops for food, gas and flying his drone. A more realistic speed of 40 translates into 23 hours to cover 925 miles. It could be done on an Interstate, 80 MPH drops the drive time down to a manageable, if not pleasant, 11.5 hours (assuming there are no traffic jams).
