I found an awesome place to relax and recover from traveling. Tremont had a free single EV charger on the side of the town office.

I saw a 30 miles per hour (over 40 amps) charge rate with this plug.

Updating a Tesla Model 3 to Latest Software
Updating to 2020.4.1!

Update 2020.4.1 arrived a few days back and I was able to use the hotspot on my Google Pixel 3 XL to update my car. It ended up being an update with bug fixes, no major features.

I mentioned the electric vehicle charger to the shop and they were unaware of its existence! There is a trail to easily cross over to the gas station.
