Where would you like to see Tesla set up Super Chargers?

I have a couple long drives I undertake and came up with a list that would be convenient for me. Somehow I think Tesla will take a wider array of people into account :)

Here is where I would like to see them (for my personal convenience of course :) )
North Bay, ON
Barrie, ON
Stratford, ON
Niagara, Falls, ON
Erie, PA
Morgantown, WV
Beckley, WV
Charlotte or Statesville, NC

I actually anticipate Tesla will concentrate their super chargers in/near their hottest U.S. markets (at least initially), but I can dream about them being in more out of the way places.

Where would they suit you best?

@ Brian H...people say that you have a sense of humor...we are just on different wavelengths, I guess. My comment was meant facetiously!

I created a map for Europe, where everybody can pin their spots. Mybe you can create a similear map for the US

Along the Denver-KC-St. Louis I-70 corridor. It would be especially helpful between KC and St. Louis (KC, Columbia and STL?) to get to the service center from KC.

I'd like to see one out in Stanislaus county so that San Jose<->Yosemite would be a breeze.

I have previously suggested that one in Mariposa would really help travelers in and out of Yosemite Valley.

LA to Phoenix would be fantastic, somewhere half way between Barstow and Phoenix.

New york state thruway between NYC and Albany, and between Albany and Buffalo would be great. Cracker Bar. or other resteraunts just of the thruway would be great. Let us drive from NYC to Toronto please!

entire length of the PA turnpike and along I70 to columbus OH, every 100 miles or so would be nice.

I-5 from Vancouver ca to LA--esp from Seattle to Portland!

Scottsdale, AZ
Blythe, CA
Palm Springs, CA
Yuma, CA
San Diego , CA
Tuscon, AZ'
Flagstaff, AZ
Las Vegas, NV

Centralia, WA (I-5)
Ellensburg, WA (I-90)

Pleasant Hill,Ca
Orinda,Ca
Berkeley, Ca

I'd love to see one at Lake Tahoe, not just Folsom. Similar for Yosemite, maybe near Senora Pass (highway 108) and along highway 395 in the Eastern Sierras, possibly around Bridgeport or Lee Vining (or both and maybe near Mammoth). Along highway 101 and highway 5 up through Northern California, Oregon and Washington. Highway 99 would also be handy. I wonder if there would have to be an attendant in Oregon like for gas stations?

I would also love to see them in tourist spots where people would tend to stay and travel from. I'd love to see one in Monterey or Carmel and maybe San Simeon or SLO.

The problem for me is that I like to travel to some of these out of the way places where the only way to charge would be to stay at an RV park. I found one J1772 charging station at Lake Tahoe and the place I stay there only has 115v and is at 7200 feet and will require an extension cord at that.

I would love to be able to sell my Prius, but until the charging network fills out into these out of the way places it just won't be possible. Sadly many of these routes don't see a high amount of traffic.

This will be even more important as the model X becomes available. People will want to take their Tesla cars on vacation around the country, and that will mean having to put superchargers in some out of the way places to make driving there convenient. An RV park charging at 32 miles/hour just won't cut it.

Every year I go on at least one camping trip in the Eastern Sierras near Bridgeport where there's some great fishing. There's no way I can bring my model S unless I spent many hours waiting at RV parks for my car to charge. Lake Tahoe is doable, but will be awkward because I'll be driving between 7200 feet and lake level at least several times with only 115v at night at a 4-5 miles/hour charging rate. I'm also thinking of a trip up to Oregon on the way to Bend in August. Again this just isn't feasible until more superchargers are available or at least more high amperage level 2 chargers. Hopefully CHAdeMO or some other level 3 charging standard will become popular and Tesla will offer an adapter.

aaron, you need the MI-EVSE: http://electricroadtrips.com/day-3-from-charger-woes-to-charger-boon/

Cross post from a similar thread, but I would like to see a SC in Primm, Nevada, as the Barstow-Las Vegas run is long at 160 miles or so. Coupled with potential cold, that is a tough haul for a 60 kWh battery, especially without a range charge. Primm is about 40 miles SW from LV and comes complete with an outlet mall.

i would like one in charlotte n.c.

Walnut Creek/Pleasant Hill CA I 680

The 60kWh is not a long-distance car, and the SC network is not and cannot be designed to accommodate it.

Okay, Barstow-LV may be a tough haul after a few years when the 85 kWh batteries don't have all of their original range, especially if it is cold. Putting a charger in Primm will make the distance to Barstow similar to (though still longer than) the distances from Hawthorne to Tejon Ranch, Tejon Ranch to Harris Ranch and Harris Ranch to Gilroy. If those distances are what TM is shooting for, then they will need something before LV on I-15 North, and Primm makes the most sense, at least to me.

I-75 corridor, Miami, Estero (at Miromar Outlet Mall), Tampa, Ocala, Valdosta, Macon, etc...all the way to Chicago.

@blephneiben
+1.
also primm is just a few miles from a solar electric generating plant and Tesla does need any journalist driving with the flow of traffic like the wsj reporter. There are not any public charging stations in between Barstow and Vegas (afik)

@mbcaffe, if there are any chargers I haven't been able to find them online. There may be a couple of RV parks in Baker, but I think they're more for permanent residents. Primm used to have an RV park, but there are no services now. Jean goes by in the amount of time it takes to look at the speedometer. It's pretty barren from Lenwood Rd. to the Mandalay Bay as far as EV infrastructure goes.

Good point on the solar station. That thing could probably run every proposed supercharger along with a town or two thrown in for good measure.

I-580 /I-680 Interchange in Northern California

Spaced along I-278, I-78, I-81 and I-17. With these we can get around
New York and Washington traveling between Florida and New England

Between Chicago and Detroit and Chicago to Mackinaw.

All Interstates - but in NC area, my first desires would be I-40 Wilmington to Asheville and beyond, I-85 Richmond to Atlanta

@Shelmire

+1 Agree 100%. I'd add Albuquerque to Phoenix, too!

At "The Thing" along I-10 east of Tucson ..... OR Wilcox AZ. Travel Center.

OR 150 miles in "any" direction from my house!! then I'd be able to reach civilization MwaHahaha!!

Drove this weekend from Raleigh to Columbia. Had to charge each way at a public (J1772) station. Slow at 19 mi/hr and 30 A. Inconvenient but not a real problem.

Had I had access to one of the Tesla network stations the trip would have been identical to an ICE trip.

The 'SuperCharger' network should solve most of these problems.

200 mile intervals along all of I-95 would be ideal for north/south on the east coast.

Also 200 mile intervals along all of I-40 for east/west.

And the Outer Banks of NC!
