Looks like Chiriaco Summit went live. This really helps out for Joshua Tree and on I-10 going towards Blythe/Phoenix.

Once the EA chargers in Quartzsite go live, Phoenix should be fairly easy, even in a RAV4.

We are driving a Rav4 EV from SoCal to Phoenix soon. It’s about 120 miles from Blythe to Buckeye, so will probably just drive that leg at 60mph.

Let us know how it goes. I'm taking the RAV4 to Vegas in about a week. Shouldn't be too bad LA > Victor Valley > Baker > Vegas.

Vegas is easy, now. The longest leg is about 94 miles.

does anyone here use abetterrouteplanner.com?
I used it for my trip (in the Tesla) to Texas and Iowa and back and it was awesome. VERY accurate.
You will have to figure out your battery degradation to use it correctly though.

Yes, ABRP is awesome for Tesla trip planning.
Just for kicks, I did an ABRP trip plan for the RAV using a 40kWh Leaf. It gave a trip plan that looked totally doable in the RAV4 EV with JdeMO.

The CEC funded EVgo site in Williams appears to be online, at least according to Plugshare. It's not showing up in the EVgo app yet.

Plugshare - Shop N' Save - Williams, CA

The site is now active in the EVgo app. The longest stretch without a working DCFC between the Bay Area and the Oregon border along I-5 is now 73 miles. That distance will be cut down to 54 miles when the EA site in Willows opens. At that point, the longest stretch will be between Redding and Dunsmuir. That segment will be cut about in half by a ChargePoint site in Lakehead-Lakeshore. After all these sites are open, there will be DCFC at less than 50 mile spacing along the whole corridor.

A DCFC in King City is finally under construction. Permits say 560 Canal St. but the person who took this picture said "behind AutoZone" which is 510 Canal St, same shopping center just off 101.

Not CEC, but the EA site in Bridgeport just went live. First step towards opening up the Eastern Sierras. It's now possible to get from Tahoe to Mammoth / Yosemite via 395.

Two more EA sites along 395 need to go live and Los Angeles will be within reach.

EA and CalTrans are the only ones with plans I know of for US-395. It's another important corridor that needs fast charging infrastructure.
