Hopefully Blythe and not Quartzsite. Having been to both towns, I would much rather spent 30-60 minutes at a restaurant in Blythe than 30-60 minutes in Quartzsite talking to a guy with a folding table trying to sell me rocks that he picked up off the ground.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

Wagon Mound's been open for a few months, so IDK why you'd be getting alerts about it.

Glenwood Springs(I-70 ex. 114 or 116) is #4 for the month and #306 total. This was one of the most important of the "Coming Soon" sites, as it makes it possible albeit not yet practical to make it between Grand Junction and Lakewood (236 miles) or Littleton (241 miles). The Glenwood Springs QC is 88 miles from the Grand Junction QC. Frisco, CO. is still needed to make the trip practical, as you have to climb cover 5,500 ft. going either way between Glenwood Springs and the Denver area.


Update: Milpitas, CA (Urb. I-680/880 ex. 8B) is open, #5 for the month and #307 total.

IDK as well.

I entered requests for as many "coming soon locations" as I can. I have most of the Mountain West in my list. There is a limit to the number of notifications on the list, and there are some in California not in the list still, as I'm at the limit. When a station reports, I find another station. I did a pass of the map outside CA a week or so, and this showed as "coming soon", and wasn't on my list, so I put on my list. And I got notified. Perhaps it was down for a week or so??

I didn't have this on my list. So I wasn't notified.

I think I know what happened. They've changed the listing, and I'm guessing any time a listing changes it sends out a notice. It used to just be titled something like "Wagon Mound", and now it reads "Conoco Wagon Mound (wagon Mound, Nm)", with the full address below. Apparently EA's Department of Redundancy Department is on the job! :lol: BTW, that's an exact copy, capitalization errors and all.

In addition to the latest site in Sacramento (U.S. 50 ex. 8/8B) WetEV listed (which I'm calling Sacramento-E. as there are now 8 sites in Sac plus one in W. Sacramento as well as sites in Elk Grove and N. Highlands), another site has opened in Chicago (Urb., I-290 ex. 29A), so that's #s 6 and 7 for the month, and #s 308-309 total.


EA seems to have added a couple of "Coming Soon" sites to I-5 in the San Joaquin Valley since the last time I checked, at Harris Ranch and "Bakersfield" (actually at the turn-off for Taft, I-5 ex. 244/246, Jcts. with S.R. 41/119).

Less than 3 months left in the year. Will they meet their Cycle 1 (through June 30, 2019) commitment by then? Will they start installing Cycle 2 locations, as promised? It's not looking good. Although they have made significant progress.
