EA in Colchester (Burlington) VT is now open. This is important for the Boston-Montreal corridor, although EVgo already has coverage in the Burlington area. EA really needs to open their station in West Lebanon, NH to complete the corridor.

Thanks to a hint via Plugshare activity feed about a complimentary session, I ventured out and it's free. The DC FCs and J1772 are showing complimentary session on them. Been DC FCing my Bolt.

If it doesn't say complimentary session on the LCD, it probably won't be free.

I called them to report a station prob (broken tang on one and other handle that didn't work). They mentioned something about a provider having a global outage or something which is why (some?) stations are set to free.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

There are a couple of new "Coming Soon" western road trip sites which I'm adding to the list I'm monitoring, in Goleta and Ventura, both on U.S. 101. Ventura is less critical infill given the existing Camarillo site, but I've never understood why EA didn't have a site in the Santa Barbara area, as it's an obvious destination from the L.A. area, and the run from the site in Pismo Beach to Camarillo was a bit long at 123 miles (although the "Coming Soon" sites in Santa Maria and Solvang would solve that). "Soon" they will.

Walmart 2075 (Bend, OR) at 20120 SW Pinebrook Blvd, Bend, OR 97702 is now live.

This is much needed for people heading to/from Mt. Bachelor from the Eugene area. They need a couple more on U.S. 97 to make travel along it viable - say, K-Falls, Madras and maybe Biggs in Oregon. One in Beaver Marsh or thereabouts would serve as a NE gateway to Crater Lake.

I know some that have received notices this is live but its not on EA's site or PS and normally EA announces on PS when the station is live so guessing its free charging for a day or two so don't delay! These things only last 1 to 2 days at the most.

Also, Raju Countryside Market (Lost Hills, CA) at 21959 CA-46, Lost Hills, CA 93249 is now live.

This completes EA's sites on I-5 in the San Joaquin Valley, although they could use another infill in Kettleman City for spacing.

Now that Port Angeles is open, besides Aberdeen they need at least one and preferably two more in between the two. If one, Kalaloch or Queets is closest to midway; if two, Sappho and Amanda Park strike me as best.
