    FYI -as of 2pm today the site had all the stalls and cables in. My next trip up north will be much faster. :)

    Indeed CadillacJack, I bicycled past the chargers today and took a picture. Not operational yet, but looks like a few days to go. IMG_20160806_161249381.jpg

    Thanks Forty Creek; I emailed supercharge.info to ask them to revise the charging stalls from 6 to 8. Just enjoying some Forty Creek myself along with a cigar!

    I don't recall many businesses within walking distance of the Microtel. Most everything is on the other side of the highway.

    There's a Starbucks steps away, but yes, you need to cross Louisa St. to get to McDonalds. Louisa gets very little traffic and is easy to cross. A bit of a walk to get to Harveys/Swiss Chalet or Tim Horton's.

    There are a lot of places within a 400 meter walk - which is about the same distance from the Barrie Supercharger to the main group of restaurants at the other end of the parking lot. This is pretty darn good I would say.

    And a big thanks to the owner of the Microtel for hosting this. I hope it translates into some more business for them.

    Any news on a "grand opening" for this? I'd certainly be interested in making the trip.

    Went by Parry Sound this morning. It looks complete except for the paving and the shrink wrap.

    Nothing seemed to be going on at Parry Sound today. Here is a photo from this afternoon...

    Odd... even the paving isn't complete. So close yet so far.

    I checked it this morning, no change. Half of the signs are General parking, the others say Tesla vehicle charging only.

    Yes, this is also a tight spot. It bottlenecks the entrance to the hotel a bit.
