    Do you have any idea how far Laredo is from any significant mass of Tesla owners?

    Another Portal beside McAllen to head into Mexico.
    Very Cool!!!!
    Might need Supercharger @ San Antonio or Dilley, TX to make it from San Marcos (205 miles), at least in a S60.

    Probably announcing soon a couple of new Superchargers in Monterrey, Saltillo and Matehuala, connecting in toward Mexico City area.

    There are ten Tesla owners in Webb county -- plenty to cover something like this. :D

    Trying to imagine No Country for Old Men with Tesla as car of choice.... basically, everyone should run if you see this guy approaching the Laredo supercharger.

    Hmm 166 miles for me -- I could do it. Although I have never had a desire to go to Laredo. Hopefully that doesn't upset anyone.

    Apparently everyone in the US. @Chuq from way down under in Tasmania found it. Did you plug in to make sure they’re live @Chuq ? Just kidding. Thanks for sharing.

    there are only two normal road routes for Monterrey. Now both are accessible. When San Antonio opens it will be easier still. Even easier when Dilley, Sabinas Hidalgo and General Bravo open presumably within the next few months. Even Saltillo should open soon too. That makes the business and tourist centres surrounding Monterrey all accessible even for 60's.

    I wonder how soon the route all the way to Mexico City will be completed. My guess is probably quite soon, based on the six Superchargers already open surrounding the Mexico City region. Once that happens Tesla tourism to South Texas/Mexico should rise rapidly.

    It is astonishing to see how rapidly many such gaps are being eradicated. 2018 will be quite eventful in Supercharger terms.
