    I think you're right about Kittery. Sturbridge, though, is probably really Sturbridge according to Diarmuid O’Connell, Tesla’s vice president of business development. The Center at Hobbs Brook would be a convenient location. If we're going to look beyond Sturbridge proper, the Chardon rest areas off I-90 (Mass Pike) would be logical choices.

    Regardless of exact location, these additions to the "Coming Soon" list are very welcome. Thanks, Tesla!

    A few weeks ago I met one of the site engineers for the NE at the Greenwich SC. We spoke about the Sturbridge location which he confirmed was the Chardon rest area. He told me Tesla was still in negotiations with the site. The sticking point at the time was the requirement that a handicap accessible ramp be built from the McDonalds to the proposed SC location which evidently is a long distance and would be expensive to construct. At the time I suggested that he approach the stir and suggest that the pathway should not be required as these locations are not parking spots but feeling locations and that a driver could charge and then move there vehicle to a handicap spot closer to the facilities if they chose. I don't know if he pushed forward with this argument or even Tesla is still in conversations with the site, but I supposed time will tell.

    After all the excitement of 24 Superchargers installed in January, February was a little bit of a let down with only 5. Even so, the average for the two months, 14.5, is still more than the 13 that we were all so excited about in December! With all of the new "coming soon" sites on the Tesla Map, I hope that the pace will pick up as the weather warms up this Spring. Below is my North American Installs chart.

    There are now 93 Superchargers worldwide and 79 in North America. We are getting very close to 100 worldwide, and probably only a month or two from having 100 North American Superchargers!

    A little accounting note: The changes tab on Superchargers shows 6 North American installs, and I show 5. The difference is that I show Greenwich, CT online in January, Superchargers shows Greenwich, CT in February, and Supercharger | Tesla Motors does not have Greenwich, CT in the list or the count yet. Thus, Superchargers and I both show 79 North American Superchargers, and Supercharger | Tesla Motors shows 78 North American Superchargers

    i agree with you... Until I looked where Sturbridge was and really looked close at the map, the outlet looked like it could be that dot, but even before posting it I had my doubts. The other hint was putting it in relation to the Rhode Island supercharger. On the other hand, the Roseville and bethesda locations and a few others show just how inaccurate that map can be.

    The other thing to keep in mind that there is no guarantee on a specific location, regardless of what hints employees/construction workers/city hall members say until construction has started.

    If you overlay the coming soon map with a map of LA and line up the freeways and the existing Superchargers, the center of the new dot pretty much lands right on downtown LA. In a parking garage, like in Vegas?

    And Tesla is so careful about placing the dots on the map. Like in Folsom and Roseville... [8^)

    Talked to the Cranberry foreman yesterday, he confirms the Wheeling dot is in Triadelphia, WV. He could not confirm whether it was on Cabelas Drive or not.

    Connecting: Cheyenne > Normal > Macedonia (3 existing SCs):

    1. Big Springs, NE _ 151 miles
    2. Kearney, NE ___ 168 miles
    3. Lincoln, NE ____ 129 miles
    4. St. Joseph, MO _ 141 miles
    5. Hannibal, MO __ 193 miles
    6. NORMAL, IL ___ 176 miles - existing SC
    7. Logansport, IN _ 150 miles
    8. Lima, OH ______ 132 miles
    9. MACEDONIA, OH 162 miles - existing SC

    The 193 miles across MO is a bit high for MS60s but 7 miles less than
    the original stop at Highland Park (from Mauston, WI), and should be
    doable except in winter extremes.

    Denver > Big Springs direct (bypassing Cheyenne) is only 209 miles from Lone Tree
    (existing) or 186 miles from D.I.Airport charger (existing Level2 ?).

    The miles look pretty good on paper. This SC route would avoid the choke-points of
    Chicagoland, Kansas City, St Louis, Indianapolis IN, Columbus OH, yet be close enough
    to each for the 'intended purpose' of SCs. It optimizes the reality of Normal, IL being
    where it is.

    Two MSs left Cheyenne going to Pennsylvania. One chose to head north to South Dakota,
    the other chose to head east to Nebraska. Which one crossed the PA border first?

    @wycolo: the problem with trying to "avoid the choke-points" is that "choke-points" are also known as "destinations". It makes more sense for Tesla to support (at least initially) routes that connect high-density travel. There are probably more people who would drive from Cheyenne to Chicago than those who want to drive to New York City. Trying to bypass all the regional centers, like Indianapolis and Columbus, results in a network that doesn't serve most people's needs.

    In the 2015 map, it appears that Tesla is supporting a Cheyenne--Davenport IA route. From Davenport, you can either head due east to Chicago or down through Normal to Lafayette IN to Dayton OH. These are the interstate routes, of course; as much as I'd love to see better support on the slower federal highways, I think it's reasonable for Tesla to be focused for now on the better-traveled interstates.
