    It would be nice for long distance travelers to get I80 across Nevada finished. The SuperChargers site shows one in/near Reno (maybe it's in Carson City) and a permit for one in West Wendover (on the opposite side of the state). Anyone know anything about this stretch and SuperCharger sites?

    From Nevada Superchargers - Page 10

    The route across I-80 now seems to be: Truckee, CA to Nephi, UT - Google Maps

    Truckee, CA
    Lovelock, NV — 126 miles
    Winnemucca, NV — 72 miles
    Elko, NV — 124 miles
    West Wendover, NV —107 miles
    Tooele, UT — 100 miles
    Nephi, UT — 107 miles

    This will be a very nicely spaced set of Superchargers for crossing Northern Nevada!

    The Elko supercharger may already be under construction, but the location has not been discovered.

    Derek M just found the permit for the Lovelock location at 150 Main Street.

    Wow! Thanks for all the help and the other link. Very helpful, and way more progress than I had thought. By the time I get there, this summer, I80 might be an easy route.

    These are all in the permit stage or under construction. Looks like Bay area MS owners will have a nice path east in a few months! From Supercharger.Info:

    This route will help me greatly if I take a long trip to Yellowstone from Omaha (then on to Portland, down the coast, then back this way to Kansas, Toto, and home to Omaha). I just need help in Wyoming with Sheridan and Gilette on I90...

    Look how much better the map looks in only 5 days!

    I only wish I-90 would move so fast...the two would make a great West Coast loop from Colorado.
