With the first-ever cross-country Tesla Model S Supercharged road trip now a part of history, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has taken to the Twitter airwaves to reveal that his National Lampoon’s-style family trek across the nation in a Model S is scheduled to take place during “Spring Break.”

“Spring Break” is of course a vague statement, but we suspect it implies a timeframe of end sometime between mid-March and mid-April.

Musk’s adventure will undoubtedly be exciting to follow, as family road trips almost always are.

Per previous Tweets from Musk, we expect the 6-day, 3,200-mile journey to be accomplished with only 9 hours spent charging.

Here’s a look back at the Tweets posted by Musk over 5 months ago:

Isn’t it really a 6,400 mile journey since they have to drive home too?

kdawg … one of the benefits of being a billionaire is that you do not have to drive home unless you actually want to …

Haven’t you seen Iron Man? He just calls his suit and then flies home… 😛

His Falcon 900 jet will be ready in New York for the return.

Good Luck Elon! You are going to need it.
I suggest a back-seat divider as a Tesla option

nice one 🙂

Brings back memories as our family would pile into a 1963 Valiant sedan and drive from Pueblo, Co to Hew Hampshire for summer vacation. So that was 3 kids, my parents and a “westy” dog all in this little valiant. Here are some highlights:

-My little sister has to pee too much and my father won’t stop because it would mess up the “schedule”. Therefore Penny is made to pee in a coffee can in front of her 2 brothers.

-Each evening we have to fight over where to stay. Kids want a pool. Kids get pool because it gives my father time to drink bourbon alone in the hotel room and get a break from the family.

-Children fight and pick on each other. My father remains calm until finally he can’t stand it any longer and starts whacking children in the back seat with his right hand at the same time he is driving. This takes some skill.

Good luck Elon. Lucky your already divorced.

Wasn’t there a super model involved in that road trip?

If I were Elon, I’d be tempted to stage that one…..

Elon may be Super human…but it might be asking too much of anyone to resist Christie Brinkley. My favorite part of that film was when they all fell asleep driving and ended up in the hotel parking lot. Grisswald autonomous driving!

He originally announced he would be doing this road trip over the summer.
