Grant’s Getaways: beauty Oregon

Which type of drivetrain would be better than electric to enjoy nature?

The answer is that there’s no drivetrain better than electric in this case, and Grant McOmie, author of Grant’s Getaways, just switched to a Nissan LEAF.

One of the latest episodes of Grant’s Getaways is entitled EV Pacific Coast Scenic Byway.

Part of the route was powered by DC fast chargers on the West Coast Electric Highway.

“I love the kind of travel that puts me in touch with the many faces of Oregon adventure, so when the summertime mood to move strikes, I like to migrate to the Oregon coast. There’s no finer way to explore it than the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway.

But on this trip my mode of travel has switched: I’ve traded in my gas-powered Jeep for an All-Electric Nissan Leaf.”

Insider Tip: the Oregon Coast (and California too) is much nicer in late Summer and the Fall… Much drier, warmer and the vistas are better. When it’s super hot inland, it sucks the moisture off the ocean (called the marine layer) and it may be too foggy to see anything.

On the flip side, if you can find somewhere with a higher elevation, the fog can be quite a site to behold!

“Part of the route was powered by DC fast chargers on the West Coast Electric Highway.”

What all TWO of them north of LA? (point reyes, hwy 1., monterry).

Or you were talking about oregon. Ie., north of the “charger desert” in California.

I thought this was in Oregon? In which case, there’s a dozen DCQCs beteween Atoria and Brookings on the PCH.

its just not a “west coast highway”. Is the “oregon coast highway”.

To me, it looks like more of an infomercial for outfitters etc than a senic drive.
