    I just got word that the Ardmore and Weatherford Superchargers are getting activated tomorrow!

    This is great news for the north exit!!! (or entry if you're coming to Texas ;) )

    Edited the title. Weatherford opens today, Ardmore tomorrow!

    As long as your "boat" is an 85 kWh. :(

    Yeah, I guess when Denton comes online it would allow for Waco, Denton, Ardmore with a 60. That one should be online, soon. Perry, OK comes online even sooner to get you farther north to I-70 via Wichita.

    There sure are a lot of 85kWh boats in Texas, though. ;)

    Equally important to some of us this means I can leave New Orleans and go west (in an 85) and escape through Texas into Oklahoma and onward!

    For those of you who want the FULL supercharger experience, we still have openings for the Shamrock St Patricks Day parade on Saturday March 14. You'd need to get to us by 10am to join in.

    You can test Ardmore, Weatherford, AND Shamrock all on 1 trip, plus join in the Shamrock festivities.

    PM me if you

    Also, you do realize it's only 164 miles from Corsicana to Ardmore. That should be doable with a 60, right? If you're coming from San Antonio, you can pop over to Corsicana until Denton is done.

    That's a great idea, Chris. I wouldn't try it in a 60 in the winter, but hopefully we'll have Denton on line by next winter.

    Also, I realized the Amarillo folks (85kWh) can go from Shamrock, Weatherford, Wichita and then on up to the great Supercharger Highway! So technically, yesterday WAS the day Texas was no longer an island!

    I'm looking forward to the Ardmore dot being lit later today, and then using it tomorrow.
