    From Supercharger - Trinidad, CO - Page 5:
    See Wildwood Casino - Cripple Creek, CO — PlugShare. They have an 80-Amp HPWC and a 32 Amp J1772 for guests.

    This looks like a great road trip from Denver or Boulder. See Google Maps — Denver to Cripple Creek, 111 miles and 2:40, one way. The route via 285, Decker's Road, and 67 is the least distance, the least time, the fewest rated miles, and certainly the most fun to drive. I will have to give this one a try...

    I'd make the trip some time this summer.

    There are TWO 80-Amp HPWCs in Cripple Creek at this time. They are within walking distance of each other. Each HPWC also has a 32-Amp J1772 located adjacent. If you decide to visit, send me a text at 719-339-9787 a couple of days prior. I often visit CC, would be happy to meet you and show you the major sights while your car charges. The largest gold mine in Colorado is an amazing sight, and the free-roaming burros are very cute. Mac

    Thanks for the info. Here are the PlugShare listings for both pairs:

    1. Cripple Creek City Parking - Cripple Creek, CO — PlugShare
    2. Wildwood Casino - Cripple Creek, CO — PlugShare

    They both look like Tesla "Destination Charging" setups, but are not listed on the Tesla "Find Us" page. I wonder why not.

    It also looks like a nice 2-hour drive across some nice Colorado country-side from Cripple Creek to the 70-Amp J1772 in Salida: Woods High Mountain Distillery - Salida, CO — PlugShare

    I plan to drive to Cripple Creek, and have a tentative get-together planned with Mac, for Tues, 7/21. Anyone else care to join?
