Hope to Kamloops

This section of the trip was up through a couple of mountain passes. The Cougahalla and seemed like I climbed most of the way thus at times the average KWH was hitting 31, which is a lot considering around Nanaimo I get 13 kWh and from home to Hope I was getting around 14.

However I did make up some on the last downhill gaining 10kms in regeneration.

All in all impressed at how well the Kona has performed so far, yes it required a lot more planning and thinking than making the same trip in a ICE vehicle, but also makes it little fun.

People ask about the time spent charging, I just look at them as rest stops, something I do anyhow on a long trip.
