Actually every 200 mile along I-15 and 1-70 from Green River, Utah to Denver
Barstow, Baker, Las Vegas and St. George already have EA chargers.

We are in Escalante, Utah. Midway between Capital Reef and Bryce Canyon. Zion and Canyonlands/Arches are nearby (by our standards) There should be a high capacity charging station in each. We've switched to the SUV and will need to wait for the extended range or charging stations because over the 200-400 mile distances out here in the west.
One of the most beautiful areas in the whole world. Every mile you drive there, around the corner is a grand new scene to take in and appreciate. Stunning. Must have chargers! Multiple locations. Amen

FortyFiveNorthwoods, Welcome to the Forum! Fellow Oregonian here.

I agree wholeheartedlywith your suggestions. I'd also love to see the RAN consider Brookings, Coos Bay, and Tillamook to open up the State and National Forests along the Oregon and NorCal Coast, as well as Burns and Jordan Valley to open up (and allow all to traverse) Central Oregon and the Owyhee basin, as well as reaching into SW Idaho and Northern Nevada.

In Idaho:

Stanley (possibly locate RAN station at Redfield Lake Lodge) would allow adventuring in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area as well as helping to traverse this underserved region.

Salmon to open up the River of No Return area as well as the Salmon-Challis National Forest.

McCall to get access to the Payette N.F. and the Idaho side of Hell's Canyon along the Snake River.

From latest communication:

We are also building the Rivian Adventure Network — a large network of DC fast chargers — to make it easy for you to go anywhere on the map. As we build this network, we’re focused on the most popular routes and destinations first. While we won’t have every point on the map connected on day one, our goal is to build the most explorer-centric charging network in the world. In addition to this DC charging network, we’re installing Level 2 chargers at many of the longer-stay and overnight destinations. Beyond our Rivian network, we're ensuring our vehicles easily integrate with third-party networks, and given that the majority of charging will happen at home, we’ll have a home charging option available, too. We’ll be announcing the initial charger locations later this year, and this charger map will be integrated with our in-vehicle and mobile applications.

GATHERING AGAIN
Before the pandemic, we had the pleasure of hosting events around the country and meeting many of you in person. These were incredibly memorable moments for our team and we look forward to bringing people together again safely in 2021. We’ll be launching 10 experience centers across the U.S. in 2021 — each one connecting you to the people, places and things you love.

Thank you! I've decided this year I'm going to lobby my Oregon reps to put EV charging stations at Rest Stops and State Parks.

Time for a little Canadian content here.

The small community of Bella Coola sits in what we in British Columbia call the Central Coast. Access is via ferry or highway #20.

Okay, highway is definitely a stretch. This road could pass for the lane behind your house. There's a chunk of it, down a very, very steep hill that isn't paved.

Perfect place for an adventure? You better believe it. But, you will have a tough time going there with an electric vehicle. The driving distance from the nearest community with a charger, Williams Lake, is 467 kilometres/297 miles.

PlugShare shows a charger at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge. The fine print, however, says it is only for lodge guests. Even if you make it to Bella Coola, the only charger there is an extension cord slung out of the harbour authority office.

Let's just say, a charging station at Bella Coola and one halfway to Williams Lake would be nice.

Then, there's highway #37, from the Terrace/Prince Rupert area just south of the Alaska Panhandle up to near Watson Lake in the Yukon.

From the time you leave Kitwanga til you reach Watson Lake, there are no chargers at all. That would be 744 kilometres/462 miles. And it gets worse. The three charging stations in the Watson Lake area are showing as RV parks. There doesn't look to be a decent charger until you get closer to Whitehorse.

So, we could really use three chargers along #37 and another one in the southern Yukon.

So far there is not much up in the Northeast of BC, either. Probably because that is oil and gas country. Hopefully that eventually gets filled in. Frankly, I would get more excited about driving #37.

Then, there is Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk in the Northwest Territories. How am I going to paddle my kayak in the Arctic Ocean if I can't drive to Tuktoyaktuk?

They don't have anything in the way of a charger. And, the last charger showing on PlugShare is an RV park at Carmacks.

The distance calculator I've been using doesn't even know there is a road to Tuk. All I get is that the flight distance is 974 kilometres/605 miles. The crows will be delighted to hear that!

Yes it is obviously a long drive. But, also spectacular. And, we could really use some charging options!

Somebody should chime in on Alaska. There must be some more options heading west from Whitehorse.

Cheers
Reed

Agreed. I'd probably say McCall or Cascade as a "hub" in central Idaho. I was looking the other day, and there doesn't appear to be any sore of DC charge between Boise and Coeur d'Alene on any network, including tesla's. 🤔

Sun Valley is the next obvious option up there, but I think I saw something in Haley.
