    we actually spent more time charging than driving due to the lack of super chargers in AZ and NM. The I10 is one of the most traveled corridors in America from Los Angeles to Texas after casa grande no Super chargers

    I thought you meant Ontario Canada. I'm in SoCal and it's now obvious you meant Ontario, California.

    If you check the Texas forum and the supercharger.info site you'll see that I10 and I20 are finally being built out westward from San Antonio and Dallas/Fort Worth. Superchargers have recently opened up in Cisco and Sweetwater along I20, and in the past few days they've been found under construction in Junction and Ozona along I10.

    ...with rumor of a Fork Stockton coming online at the beginning of the new year, as well as one in Las Cruces, NM and Van Horn, TX. Someone here was sure I-10 wouldn't see any action this year, and they've been proven wrong with the latest developments. To be fair, whether the development will extend to AZ or NM is still to be determined since Las Cruces is still filed under the rumor/hearsay category.

    I do not doubt your report. I'm sure that you researched your road trip in advance and realized that would be the case.

    I am confident that a year from now that route will be "Supercharged"!

    We just drove from San Diego to Atlanta but had to take I-40, due to the problem you describe. Just wondering exactly where you stopped to make it to El Paso. KOA's? 110 outlets?

    Is it maybe something typical for the USA to abbreviate words to the point of being ambiguous?

    Here are two TMC examples:
    FWD: Front-Wheel Drive <=> Falcon Wing Doors
    AP: Auto Pilot <=> Accounts Payable

    It's not like the posts have a price per typed word.

    It's unrelated to geographic boundaries. It's just laziness or the expectation/assumption that the reader will understand the context.

    I think AP is really clear because context would never be the same for auto pilot or accounts payable--two different genres. But yes, it irritates me a lot when people misuse FWD. And yes, I am saying misuse, because a car feature with the acronym FWD was already claimed by front wheel drive a long time ago. You can't just go change it to something else now and use it to refer to falcon wing doors. That ship has sailed.

    As for any ambiguity in the location, I just glanced left while reading the OP (yet another abbreviation) and noted the poster's location is "Ontario CA". :)

    Did you just start driving and assume there were superchargers without checking first?
