    Sweet little article from CNBC. With the ADK guys talking about getting Pizza from Tesla owners.

    But, here's the most interesting thing (to me, anyway): "When the fourth of the stations that ADK is constructing is completed, a driver will be able to travel the Pacific Northwest route from Canada to California without fuel."

    Hmmm, I count 3 done. Where is the fourth one? Or is it 4 more?

    Hehe re: pizza. :)

    Partial retrospective for entertainment purposes only:
    Somewhere around here I got contact information which led me to Todd. I had a nice chat with him. Initially he seemed a bit uncomfortable, and then I think I "heard a smile" as he understood what I was asking for and planning.

    OK, but based on the Fall 2013 map, there are 4 grey dots on the West Coast SC route (i.e. I5). 2 in southern Oregon and 2 in northern California. So, thinking about it more, I am pretty sure they are talking about 4 more, not one more since it doesn't complete the I5 corridor. And that completely ignores Ellensburg, WA and "Detroit Lake" which are also in the Fall 2013 group. So there are 3 possible interpretations of that statement:

    • one more SC in OR.
    • 4 more SCs on I5 in OR and CA.
    • 4 more SCs in WA/OR (I don't know if ADK does work in CA but based on their distance comments, I'd say no).

    For the record, it looks to me like Sutherlin/Roseburg and Medford/Ashland are the two southern Oregon ones. We can even get down to specific exit numbers for those. There really aren't that many that meet the publicly stated SC site criteria.

    I wonder if they would let us know when work will start in Ellensburg. I would throw in couple buckets of chicken to find out.

    There's one starting in Ellensburg? Hmm, we may have to look into that...

    This we can confirm. Permit 811-SPR20123-02117 has been filed for 8-200amp or less services.

    Can't wait for that Ellensburg SC. I'm heading to the Richland area next weekend to pick up some wine grapes in my S. Thanks to ChadS, I can make it borrowing his Roadster adaptor. Please put in the Ellensburg charger before the snow gets too deep and I-90 is covered in gravel. I have lots of spots in E. Wa to explore....

    <end /whine> wine?
