    MikeC had photos of Flagstaff rather than Holbrook, but the text has a time frame of mid-January for Flagstaff, Kingman, and HOLBROOK. This is the first time that I've seen a date associated the the Holbrook location (elsewhere posted to be located at another Carl's Jr.). We have friends going through Holbrook over the holidays and have asked for pix, but would love it if somebody beats us to it.

    I appreciate the challenge, but don't care much about competition . . . the entire Tesla Community are winners as the nationwide supercharger network comes online. For that matter, mankind becomes the winner as we continue to prove that that alternative energy sources can replace fossil fuels. Go Tesla!

    Hope I'm not giving anyone false hope with my report. The guy did say they'd be off for the holidays and since it's been reported there is no construction at Holbrook yet, it will probably be later in January that they finish. And of course, he also said the final step is the power company turning it on and there's no telling when that might be.

    Heh . . . false hope may be better than no hope at all. We've got faith that Holbrook is going to be online within a couple of months. I suppose that Elon could do the 185 mile trek between Flagstaff and Gallup, but a bite of burger and a few electrons at Carl's Jr. in Holbrook would make it a bit more comfortable!

    MarkR and I have hired a spy photographer to get pics of the Holbrook site under construction. She keeps sending photos, but all are like below.

    Mark -
    I think we should ask for a refund...

    Matt: We contracted with a noted photographer to capture the action in Holbrook, but apparently there's nothing yet happening. I agree that we need to demand a refund . . . this photographer is for the birds! . . . but at least I got a better bird picture.

    Looks like our noted photographer managed to take a pic without birds. Unfortunately no Supercharger construction in Holbrook yet...

    Use the insert image tool -- it's the icon that looks like a tree in a square frame, 3rd from the right when you edit/compose a post...

    I went to check out the Holbrook Supercharger site (Carl's Jr.) for any construction work yesterday. Nothing new to report. Here are some pictures

    How did you discover this? I've heard of people getting updates whenever there is a change to the Tesla website. AWESOME!

    I just have all the under construction locations bookmarked and check them periodically. This one will probably disappear soon if they notice traffic is going to it.

    That's interesting that it's located at the Burger King because previous indications were that this supercharger was located at the Carl's Jr. I'll be driving by there tomorrow and I'll check out to see if there really is any construction at the Burger King or the Carl's Jr.

    Interesting that it says Burger King. We have been under the impression it was at the Carl's Jr
