    And Supercharge.info is already updated! Now we just have to wait for it to show up in the nav and on Tesla's web map.

    Yeah I thought the same thing when I pulled in, I was there in the Blue 3. Grabbed lunch at Whole Foods on the way to work.

    I wonder if this is how it felt in America as ICE vehicles took hold in the age of Henry Ford...gas stations popping up and enabling longer and longer trips. It is SUCH a good feeling each time Tesla opens another supercharger location between two others, increasing optionality on highway trips and putting us one step closer to ICE-level flexibility. Can't wait for the 145kW unlock so that existing effective capacity at the current locations increases as well, alleviating supply constraints on high demand dates/times. SO COOL to be living through the transformation from ICE to EV.

    Excellent observation!
    Our Tesla club is planning on celebrating the opening of this Supercharger Station by joining the monthly Gainesville Cars & Coffee event that is held in the Whole Foods parking lot adjacent to the Superchargers. Unfortunately, their next Cars & Coffee event is planned for Mother's Day so to avoid scheduling conflicts we've decided to wait until the following event on June 9th. In a few days we will firm up things and will post the details in a sticky thread at the top of this sub-forum. In addition to our club members, we will be inviting the public to join us for the celebration.

    So happy Gainesville is finally done. Complete game changer for me visiting friends and family and for college football games.

    The location is also perfect with great restaurants and shopping and not far from the highway.

    One place I hope Tesla does soon is Charleston South Carolina. Great place to visit and isolated from any Superchargers for now. Key West would also be nice to avoid using hotel chargers.

    Charge in Marathon going down, then hit it again if you have to on the way out. you can't drive anywhere when your there and Marathon is not that far from KeyWest anyway. Even Charleston, I hear people complain all the time about it. Its not that hard although I did find Nema 14-50 plug outside my hotel that made it quite nice. I did use public charging downtown in those garages also. You gotta work it a bit.
