Last weekend, I went on a 965-mile 36-hour "tour" of the brand-new Tesla Suerpcharger Network in Texas. I set out on Friday afternoon from Shreveport, LA, supercharged for the very first time in Corsicana, TX, took in a "Trombone Shorty" concert in Dallas, overnighted in Waco, stopped at a mall in San Marcos, ate some fabulous barbeque in Lockhart (The Barbeque Capital), had dinner with a friend in Houston, and also did some international grocery shopping for my wife in Houston, before making it back to Shreveport that night. Along the way, besides charging in Corsicana, I also charged in Waco, San Marcos, Columbus, and Huntsville. I was very impressed with the ease and speed of charging at Tesla superchargers (400V / 300 A DC-to-DC; it exceeded my expectations for eventual cross-country travel. However, I am still not sure why Tesla has completely ignored the I-20 and soon-to-be-extended I-49 corridors. You know, the 9 million people in the Dallas-Ft. Worth and Houston metropolitan areas do travel east and north too. It's not just all about the coastline and central population areas, y'all.
