    Andrew at Park Meadows confirmed that the Glenwood station is operational and that there will be no formal ribbon cutting. So let's hold our own celebration and meet up there for a gam and some electrons.

    Sounds like Saturday is the favored day; my tentative plan is to arrive at the Glenwood Superchargers between noon and 1pm. Who else is in?

    OK, I will throw out a plan for Saturday:

    1. 9:30am or so - Meet for Coffee at Red Buffalo Coffee and Tea in Silvethorne and check out the Supercharger status nearby.
    2. Convoy or just enjoy the drive to Glenwood, meeting at the Supercharges at noon or so.
    3. Because it is approximately 180 miles for most front range drivers to Glenwood, many of us will want to take on a good solid charge for the return. Worst case, that is an hour each on the Supercharger. Because there are only 4 stalls in Glenwood, this may take a while. Bring your swimsuit, Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge, Pool and Spa is about two miles away. If some MS's are not charging, we can use them to shuttle over to the hot springs.
    Please critique and offer suggestions to this plan. If you want to join the adventure, PM me with your cell phone number and e-mail. I will e-mail the info list to participants Friday PM with cell phone numbers and e-mails.

    I need to rise above the flood waters and have a fun day! :biggrin:

    Good plan, Cottonwood. Also note that Red Buffalo is just across the street from the best breakfast/lunch place in Silverthorne, the funky Mountain Lyon Cafe. If it turns out there are a bunch of us, we can stagger our arrival at Glenwood if some folks stick around for brunch while others head on over the hill.

    Rewski, if you were to show up at the restaurant in Silverthorne you could probably ride along with someone (my car's full, sorry!). If nothing else, you'd get to meet a bunch of owners.

    Silverthorne, that is. All right! Saturday, it is, for a tour of the first two Colorado Superchargers. 9:30 or so at Silverthorne, and noonish at Glenwood. I am planning on coming back through Aspen to see a couple of friends there, then over Independance Pass, a second use of Silverthorne, and then home Saturday Night!

    Beavis's pictures are definitely Glenwood Springs. The scenery matches the Google imagery for that location. There does appear to be at least 5 chargers despite the Tesla site indicating there are only 4.

    Tesla's golden spike: Coast to coast, no gas

    You guys w Moab on your wish list should definitely look at this. From the supercharger rollout thread.
    if that map is for real, there are some major changes in the SC plan from what we have seen so far.

    Sorry for the confusion. That is definitely Glenwood Springs. Yes, it has more than 4 stalls. FYI, don't eat at Double Dog Brewery. Meh.

    PS, supercharging is awesome. I arrived in GW Springs with 80 miles of range after a max charge at home in Parker. Tessie had 230 miles before we finished a very bad sandwich at the Pub and made it to Telluride with very little drama. How easy is this?

    "I arrived in Silverthorne with 80 miles of range..."

    Cut it out, Beavis! You're messing with our heads again. Repeat after me:"I promise never to write 'Silverthorne', ever again, when I actually mean 'Glenwood Springs'." :biggrin:
