    Unfortunately, unless there is another one lurking nearby, this will be another island.

    Well, from Amarillo. First one would have to get TO Amarillo. :)

    This is a pearl in the string that allows "cutting across the Panhandle."

    I've heard hints that Trinidad, CO and Las Vegas, NM are on the way...

    If @Cottonwood says an SC is coming to a location, it will happen. I've stopped questioning his posts!

    One contractor reported that they would be going to "Santa Rosa", which either means an unexpected site in Santa Rosa CA not far from Petaluma or the expected site in Santa Rosa NM.

    That one would be Santa Rosa, NM. See I-40 — Marching Towards OKC

    The map there also show how the fuzzy Tesla map indicated Trinidad, CO and Las Vegas, NM.

    I just called the front desk at the Holiday Inn Express to ask if construction had started. The guy responded, "No, I haven't heard anything about that."

    Construction underway, though no one one site at 4 pm Friday. Three cabinets observed (still shrink wrapped). Pics this evening.

    Onto to Amarillo. If someone wants to x-post to the I-40 thread, please mention no sign of construction in Albuquerque.

    This is really interesting. It's not on the 'coming soon' map, yet it is here before Trinidad CO, Albuquerque or Amarillo.

    You could do Tucumcari <-> Shamrock since it's only 208 miles, as long as you keep your speed under control, and skip Amarillo completely. Once they get ABQ up and running, you could do Oklahoma City to LA completely by supercharger.

    I just compared one of my photos to the previous post by River Brick. Does it appear that one of the cabinets has been vandalized? This may slow things down a bit.

    I wouldn't call it vandalized, maybe partly stolen.
