Electric-car, reduced-trash, cross-country tour

In 2020, collaborator Minh Nguyen and I are embarking on a cross-country tour in her Tesla Model S.  We will be collecting statistics on electricity production in 25 states and trying to quantify the CO2 produced by our travel.  We'll be measuring our trash along the way as well, with the goal of avoiding single-use plastics in particular.
