    We circumnavigated the Olympic Peninsula this week and stopped and searched for Supercharger construction activity.

    We did not find any. Most likely spot to me seems to be Forks Outfitters/Thriftway/Ace Hardware, next door to Pacific Pizza.

    There are no chain hotels or motels there. It's possible they will put it at an independent hotel, but I don't recall a history of that happening. Short of that, a gas station or city building would be about the only likely sites.

    I'm not holding my breath on this one. It was the only WA supercharger on the map that didn't say that it would be coming by the end of 2017.

    I could also see this being built at the transit center in Forks - lots of room in the parking lot there. Another possibility is the visitor center, but that's a bit far to walk to get to everything else (though that hasn't always stopped Tesla from building in inconvenient locations...).

    I'll be headed to the hospital there to do some work next Tuesday. I'll look around then too.

    Honestly I don't expect it until next year.

    Went through Forks today. They are repaving a large section of the parking lot in front of the Forks mall next to Pacific Pizza, but I saw no indication of Tesla Supercharger activity.

    Thankfully there are now destination chargers at the Quileute River Resort in La Push. Staying here tonight - awesome place. Didn't expect it to be this great honestly, lol. Highly recommended.
