    I didn't see any information on the forum about this Supercharger, nor a link on the Supercharger.info page, so I thought I would start one.

    The Supercharger is in the parking lot of a nice mall, but also in the middle of a travel trailer lot. It's kind of unusual, but you have to drive through a row of travel trailers (they're for sale) in order to get to the Superchargers. It's not a problem, and while we were there the trailers were open for viewing, so we perused some pretty nice trailers to help kill the time while the S charged. The mall is a little bit off the highway, but not bad.

    The local car dealer uses the lot. Sometimes it's RVs, other times it's cars. I've visited when it was almost impossible to get to the superchargers because they crowd them so badly. It's been written up on the Tesla forum supercharger thread by pbendo, though I see it's not searchable because it's private.

    Oh that sucks then. They did have the closest entrance to the Supercharger blocked so that I had to go all the way around the trailers then find the path on the opposite end. The salesmen I met were nice about it, complimented the car, etc.

    I was there once when the RV's were on display. Made getting to the Charging Pedestals a challenge.

    BTW, there was a Cheyenne Thread already... Cheyenne, WY Supercharger - Page 12

    Doh! Didn't see it.

    Maybe the moderator can just add my posts to the end of the one that already exists. No sense having two.

    Think we chatted briefly in the restaurant at the Loveland SC on the way home. Was that you?

    Was this the worst of the congestion for the Denver/Eastern Wyoming eclipse viewers? If so, that doesn't sound too bad, although it would have been fairly stressful for anyone who showed up in Cheyenne after that time.

    Also curious to hear what you guys did for the eclipse. I guess I probably would have just gone to Glendo and back if I was able to get a full charge at Cheyenne. I wonder if the Lusk supercharger ever got full lol.

    FWIW, I drove down from Seattle, stayed with friends in Lebanon, OR and viewed the eclipse on a hill on a farm near Scio, OR. It was truly amazing. No issues with waits at superchargers for me, but I took advantage of the fact that I'm a night owl and traveled during the wee hours. I'm sure there were some lineups in Centralia and Woodburn and I know there were some small lines headed to eastern Oregon (Pendleton, Baker City and probably Ellensburg), but I haven't heard any horror stories from the WA/OR eclipse viewers. Shasta and Corning are a different story entirely!

    I was planning to stop in Torrington, WY. Traffic was terrible on 85N, so took some back roads, first east, then north, very close to the NE border. These are country roads, one lane each way, with speed limits of 65-75 mph. Passed through a few small towns whose signs indicated their elevation was more than 10x their population :)

    There's a post by Bighorn on the tesla.com forum about his trip to Lusk. IIRC, he said there were 7 cars waiting to charge there.

    On an unrelated note, I got a kick out of the traveler's comment on the other forum we share, about the topics of last week's chat.

    Lusk ended up with about 15 cars total with an orderly and unharried line that never got over 3 deep. There was about a 4 mile backup coming in from the north on 85. Fortinately, there was a traffic cop at the stop light in town or it would have been awful.

    Sorry for the long delay in replying. I don't hang out here much. I tend to stay on the other forum.

    We did talk in Loveland mid afternoon
