Geneseo is 107 miles from Williamsburg, IA (I-80), 126 from Bloomington, IN (I-80/39 or I-74/80) and 132 miles from Woodridge, IL. Eau Claire is the first site in Wisconsin and Yuma the first in Arizona, meaning there are now EA QCs in 33? states; need to check my paper tally at home to confirm. Eau Claire is 93 miles from Minneapolis but 192 from Green Bay. Tomah and Madison, WI are both 'coming soon', so they will allow travel between the Twin Cities and Chicago. From Yuma you can reach San Diego with great care (172 miles), Phoenix with extreme care (185 miles). Georgetown allows you to reach Cincinnati easily via I-75 from the south, Dayton with some care, and Columbus with great care.
How many EA sites also have an L2? Tacoma Walmart has one. First one I have seen outside EA HQ

No idea, and don't care. I'll leave that to others to track.

With China joining ranks with Chademo, will be interesting to see what additional cars appear with the standard. Would be nice to see 2 terminals with Chademo on electrify America.

No guarantee of anything specific from China at this point. Will guess most will simply go EVGO where the platform is "nondenominational"

As this is essentially the end of the Q1, I thought I'd tally up where the QCs are. [Rev. 3/31/19] EA has 135 open QC sites in 35 states (this is the correct figure (I've edited my previous post after checking). Aside from Alaska and Hawaii, there are 13 contiguous states with no QCs. Three of them, New Mexico (3), Minnesota (1), and New Jersey (1) have 'coming soon' sites listed. The 10 contiguous states with no 'coming soon' sites are Wyoming, North & South Dakota, Alabama, West Virginia, Delaware, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Here's a list showing number of sites by state(s), in descending order.

# sites: State(s)

12: TX
8: IL, TN
7: FL
6: GA, OR
5: CA, CO
4: ID, IN, KY, KS, MO, NC, NE, NV, OK, PA, WA, VA
3: AR, IA, MA, MT, OH
2: CT, LA, MD, MI, NY
1: AZ, MS, SC, UT, WI

Thanks for the update. Very excited about the expanding network. Only wish is that South Dakota would be added to the map to allow a Mt Rushmore visit.

There are no plans to do so with the first cycle - see the map here: https://images.app.goo.gl/xZdLjSqq6YrwSHj26

They are well along with most of the routes shown, but still lack the first X-C route, and will need to infill on those routes that exist in a preliminary state now to make them practical rather than adventures. It would take just two more sites to open that first X-C adventure route, from Florida to the PNW: Frisco, CO, and one in either Crescent Junction or better yet Green River, UT. Two more in Nevada (W. Wendover and Reno or Fernley) would allow access to Northern California, a couple more in Utah would allow access to SoCal, one in Ohio would open up NYC (but another one to three would allow use of I-80 straight across from Chicago to Cleveland).

I have no idea if they plan to expand coverage beyond the routes shown on the map, in Cycle 2 or the subsequent ones, but I-94 and I-90 across the Dakotas and Montana were always going to be the last priority, and should be. I-80 across Wyoming and/or I-40 from Barstow to Flagstaff would presumably be added before that.

Two more sites have opened, making 24 for the month and 135 Total: Portage, MI (I-94, S. of Kalamazoo and E. of U.S. 131); Jackson, TN (Jct. I-40/U.S. 45 Bypass).

Jackson is between Memphis and Nashville, and was much needed to shorten the leg between them from 199 miles to 65.5/135). Portage eliminates much of the detour (to Lansing) between Mishawaka and Detroit, and makes it possible to drive CGO-DET via I-90/94 with two legs of 144 and 141 miles.

I had some time to kill, so revised the end of quarter list uptopic to show the number of sites per state for all states, including the above two.

The first site of the month has opened, which I believe wasn't on the 'Coming Soon' list (there've been a few), #136 total: Asheville, NC (Jct. I-26-I-240/Alt U.S. 74). This is 125 miles from the Nashville QC site via I-40, 138 miles from Commerce, GA via I-26/I-85, 165 miles from Wytheville via I-26 & I-81, and a few other sites can also be reached with extreme care.
