    There are so many Superchargers now, I thought its high time I attempt to visit each one, starting with the ones on this side of the pond. I hope to document many great adventures on this thread. Wish me luck and hope to meet some of you at a Supercharger some time.

    # Date First Visit
    Roseville, CA

    • Roseville is the third supercharger within 50 miles of our house, how lucky are we!
    • The SC just opened yesterday
    • This is going to mean many more trips to Roseville for absolutely no reason at all

    • Now this is an expensive Supercharger!
    • First port I plugged into was only charging at 21miles/hr, but luckily there were a few empty spots so I switched to better spot.
    • Looks like there are still some construction around the SC.

    8 12-29-2013 Atascadero, CA
    • We used to visit Morro Bay quite a bit so we're familiar with the area.
    • Charged up to the max range while we ate lunch at Denny's.

    7 12-29-2013 Buelton, CA
    • Traveled up the 101 on the way back from LA (mostly so I can add to this list)
    • Not much to see in Buelton, although there's a nice Marriott if you need to overnight here; in fact, there was a MS from Arizona parked here.
    • Had some breakfast at the McDonald's next door and we were on our way.

    6 12-27-2013 Los Angeles, CA
    • Stopped at the Hawthorne Supercharger to pick up some electrons for various trips around town. I wasn't the only one with the same idea. Was there for about 30 minutes and there were at least 6 cars waiting at various points in time. Most if not all of them were locals.
    • This location definitely has the coolest Supercharger sign!
    • The design center has a Model X, which doesn't look quite as big in person; can't wait to test drive it.
    • Noticed a 19" turbine wheel at the design center. Might investigate getting that option as opposed to my 21" turbines.

    5 12-24-2013 Tejon Ranch, CA
    • Drove from Harris to Tejon quite speedily. Passed a couple of Porches and Audis on the way. That was too much fun.
    • Took a short break at the Starbucks. Have stopped at Tejon more times than I can count, but first time in a Tesla. It makes all the difference.

    4 12-24-2013 Harris Ranch, CA
    • On our way down to LA for Christmas, we first SCed at Folsom and then headed to Harris Ranch. The trip was a good 200 miles. We made it with 30 miles to spare starting with 268 miles of rated range.
    • Another Tesla had just been unloaded from a tow truck when we pulled up to the SC. Guess they under estimated the range.
    • Ate at the Harris Ranch restaurant. Excellent spot for meat lovers! No so much for vegetarians.

    3 12-20-2013 Vacaville, CA
    • Attended the opening ceremony at Vacaville. What a great turnout! Haven't seen so many Teslas in one spot since the factory. This site should be very convenient for my drive to and from Sunnyvale. Oh, picked up a birthday gift for my mom at the outlet too :smile:

    Damien, while your at it start a "Supercharger Travel Guide". Some notes on nice places to eat, things to look for, and etc. at each supercharger would be cool...
