    Interesting list, but I'm not sure what you mean by "certainly not a coincidence."

    Just that someone has a sense of humor and managed to work out spacing that got approved. I didn't include some others, like Lone Pine and Lone Tree.

    Ah, I see.

    Perhaps the same person that "randomly" made the guys in the next room over from me roommates my freshman year of college: one's first name was Clark, and the other's last name was Kent.

    I think it's simply the matter that many MANY towns in the United States are named after other, older cities. In Ohio alone we have Berlin, Dublin, Lima, Xenia, Athens, Toledo, Brooklyn, Kent, Lebanon, Macedonia, Medina, Oregon, Ontario, Salem, Troy, and more.

    Funny, in that I thought the same thing, on a smaller scale. There are only 25 SC in Canada. One is in Woodstock ON....and there is probably one going to Woodstock NB. Tesla is also planning one in west of Metro Toronto. Possibly Burlington ON......

    Though Aberdeen, WA may become the first supercharger to be shut down. The mayor who negotiated the contract is in trouble for not disclosing he owns Tesla stock (a violation of state law) and the city council is going to vote to invalidate the contract and it might go through.

    I don't know if he violated the law or not, but the intent for self-gain was not there. If I recall correctly, he owns $4000 in stock TOTAL, not necessarily in TSLA. Exactly how much of a windfall is he going to get from providing a single Supercharger location out of thousands -- if a single supercharger location one way or the other helped stock prices, we'd all be rich from it...

    I suspect they will re-vote on the contract and it will be approved.

    That would be neat, but the Harbor area is very suspicious of anything with environmentalist overtones, so it's certainly not a done deal. This town has certainly been capable of reloading and shooting their other foot before.

    Yes, I can see politicians trying to distance themselves from the controversy by voting against it. Even though they were the ONLY ones to vote FOR it. Facts have little to do with reality once the media gets involved.

    Could it be that with more and more SC spots closer together, we would be able to smell the "Musk Oil" fragrance in the air?

    I wonder how much we can predict future locations from the name of the city? For example, as I-80 gets Superchargers installed going across Wyoming, there are few towns. One will obviously be in Rock Springs, WY. However, there is a Hampton Inn in the small town of Green River, WY right next to Rock Springs. Since there is a Supercharger in Green River, UT, might it be here instead???;)
