    I called the Best Western in Ozona and they confirm that superchargers have been under construction for about two weeks. They expect it to be another 3 weeks or so before they are complete.

    It makes me think that many of these I-10 SC will just show up on the navigation. I mean, who's gonna drive out from Tucson to San Antonio and check? Not me!

    We used to get emails when a location went live. I don't recall seeing one in awhile.

    Fort Stockton location: a rather vague "some hotel there - should be right around the new year."

    Thanks for your Junction and Ozona reports. Did you also pass through Fort Stockton today and look for activity? It looks like there are several possible hotels that have hosted other superchargers: Best Western, Hampton Inn, La Quinta, and Holiday Inn Express.

    Justicepool: yes, Ozona Best Western - immediate right turn at the west-bound exit to access.
    BW is being remodeled. Secluded location for the SCs. DQ and a pretty good local restaurant
    an easy walk ~ 1/4 mile away. Looks like construction just started - pretty messy.

    emupilot - yes, we looked in Fort Stockton but didn't see anything obvious. We've been watching the Pilot truck stop and the hotel
    cluster on the west end of town. No luck, yet.

    Interstates: I-10
    US Numbered Highways (<=5mi): None

    I-10
    From: Casa Grande, AZ - 727 miles
    To: Junction, TX (Under construction) - 90.4 miles
    Diversion: 0.4 miles
    From: Buckeye, AZ - 805 miles
    To: Columbus, TX - 328 miles

    To: Three Rivers, TX (I-10, I-37) - 277 miles
    From: Gila Bend, AZ (I-8, I10) - 786 miles
    To: Cisco, TX (TX-163, US-67, TX-206) - 203 miles
    To: Sweetwater, TX (TX-163, I-20) - 154 miles

    It's exciting to see I-10 being built out, but comprehensive coverage has quite a way to go!

    As Ft. Stockton is 108 miles away from Ozona, has numerous roads passing through, and is the only town west of Ozona at anything like the right spacing, it does seem almost certain that the next SC will be there.

    This could have been the issue with the entire route - there are so few viable places in some stretches that they had to lock down the locations of *all* sites before they started. One site falling through could have thrown a spanner in the works for all the others - like a delicate house of cards.

    So what are the best five locations between Casa Grande and Ozona?

    Purely speculative on my part, but based on the buildout of I-80 in Nebraska, I think Tesla is trying to keep the segment legs on these routes a little lower, more like 100 miles. I-10 is a little tough to do it well, so some of the legs may need to be a bit short.So, that said, maybe something like
    Casa Grande - Tucson ~ 70 miles
    Tucson - Willcox ~ 80 miles
    Willcox - Lordsburg ~ 75 miles
    Lordsburg - Deming ~ 60 miles
    Deming - Las Cruces ~ 60 miles (perhaps you can skip Deming)
    Las Cruces - Sparks ~ 65 miles
    Sparks - Van Horn ~ 105 miles
    Van Horn - Ft. Stockton ~ 120 miles
    Van Horn - Ozona ~ 107 miles.

    That would end up being 8, 7 if you take out Deming. Although I like Deming as it's used as a shortcut to get to I-25
