As a model S owner (and model 3 reservation holder) living in North Dakota, it's pretty discouraging to see that we are the final state in the contiguous U.S. without a supercharger.
It's been frustrating watching Tesla's map for future supercharger locations slip from "coming in 2014", to 2015, to 2016, and now to 2017. It's already summer and with no permits taken out in North Dakota, there's speculation there may not be any superchargers installed this year. Construction gets difficult to near impossible up here in the winter time.
I took a trip (in my ICE unfortunately) to the beautiful Red Lodge Montana last weekend (just North of Yellowstone) and saw some Tesla's there from California. Billings, MT is the final supercharger along I-94 heading East towards North Dakota. I know Yellowstone is a popular destination for Tesla owners, and this got me thinking about our National Park here in ND. It's a shame that Tesla is just a few superchargers away from enabling access to the beautiful Theodore Roosevelt National Park and Badlands of Western North Dakota, as well as the old West tourist town of Medora. I know if there were superchargers in the area it would be a wonderful destination for Tesla owners to visit.
There may not be a ton of Tesla Owners in our state, but they've all been patiently waiting for a long time (most have been waiting longer than me). I know for a fact a lot more Tesla's would be sold up here if there was access to superchargers. Almost everyone I've shown my car to has been blown away by the technology, but won't consider one without being able to drive it across the state. Even looking on plugshare, we are probably the only state without public charging stations to enable long distance travel.
Sorry for the rant! Just hoping someone from Tesla would possibly see this post and not forget about us quiet, polite North Dakotans and show us some supercharger love!
