Concerned about their carbon footprint, an Australian couple purchased a Tesla Model S, subsequent to buying solar panels.

Shortly after receiving their Model S, they set out on quite the adventure. 1,900 miles  (3,070+ km) of driving in Australia, where charging stations are rather rare.

You may be thinking that this long of a trip (and even longer ones) have already been done before, multiple times and you'd be right. The catch is that Australia's charging network is, shall we say, lacking.

Therefore, during this trip, the couple used some of the currently existing Superchargers, a few public chargers and sought out home & business owners who allowed them to use their own 3-phase charging setups.

Sure enough, the trip was successful, totaling 1,900 miles in about 5 days!
