I started a discussion on Kevin's post for his Fremont road trip and thought it better if I created a new post. I just learned (by looking at new Super Charger locations on my car's maps) that Rapid City South Dakota has a new Super Charger. This opens some great possibilities for me as my brother-in-law David is the Chamber of Commerce Director for the community of Custer, 40 miles west of Rapid City.
The area is awesome for cruising around the hills - Custer State Park; Mount Rushmore; Crazy Horse monument; Wind Cave; Jewell Cave; Wildlife Loop with tons of bison, pronghorns, wild mules, turkeys and the like; and the real wild west.
We think there will soon be a Super Charger in Cheyenne, WY and Lusk, WY making the 400 mile trip easy from Evergreen - 370 miles from Denver. About 6 hours and a great spring venue for those interested.
I would be happy to coordinate anyone interested and I am thinking of late May. There are many RV parks for intermittent charging and lodging in cabins and lodges are plentiful in the spring before the tourists arrive.
Dave, my brother-in-law is working to get a Level 2 charging station at the Custer Chamber office. They are host to many auto club tours in the summer so this could be a great outing - it is absolutely beautiful with scenery rivaling Colorado.
This is the route planned for the Tesla coast-to-coast connection so we could be a beta-test!
Let me know on this post if you have an interest and if we have 6-10 of us, I will get started with Dave on planning!
