    I stopped late this afternoon while returning from Monterey. Very Good News! Construction progress is rounding the final turn. Personnel working on site expect to be complete Friday, with Inspection & Commissioning next week. They were very optimistic the site would be up by month end. I will try to post some status photos tomorrow.

    Just stopped by ourselves, also coming back from Monterey and headed to Clarkston. They were doing the final wiring; connecting the main feeds from the transformer. There are five stalls, like Ellensburg (one unpaired). Work is being done by our old friends ADK. One of the guys in a truck gave us a big grin as soon as he saw our car, and said: "I guess it can't come soon enough!" Ain't that the truth!

    Just curious about where you are stopping to charge for this trip, as I'm going to be making the trip from Lewiston to Portland next month. The best place I have found is in Walla Walla at Abeja Inn, but cannot get a hold of anyone there to verify that the HPWC is still available for use. That HPWC would make the charging for that trip minimal. The other choice is at the Crow Butte State Park, but it may be full this time of year.

    Thanks for the pics.

    We begged our way into Abeja. The HPWC is there and mostly working at full power (had some fluctuations and power-limited at the end, maybe due to nearby thunderstorms), but they clearly prefer to reserve it for guests. We had driven from Berkeley, CA to Hood River, OR yesterday-- our longest distance day so far-- almost 700 miles and six superchargers! We charged overnight at the Best Western in Hood River, using the one 14-50 they have on the side wall of the small conference centre.

    John and Molly Abbott (winemaker/marketing at Abeja) are good friends. We're planning a trip there next fall (after BC this fall). Great wines. We used to have a winery in WW, since sold. John was winemaker there when we opened it in the 90's (Canoe Ridge.) They're good people. And the owner of Abeja is the retired CEO of Portland General Electric, who has retired and lives in the main house on the property.
