Day 2, complete.

At 2:30am today when we were going to bed, I thought for sure we wouldn't make it to Rapid City.  But with the smooth-smooth-sailing today, here we are!  There was also a pleasant time change as we pulled in, which meant we'll get an extra hour of sleep tonight too.  Woot.

We charged in Murdo, SD at the supercharger.  It's located at Range Country Lodging, which was an interesting place.  It's pretty impressive outside and inside there is an exquisite display of stuffed dead animals (yikes).  We moved on fairly quickly.

I'm sure the drive to Rapid City would have been gorgeous if it was day time.  We passed a lot of signs indicating scenic lookout points, but it was pitch-black out.  I would have loved to see some of the Badlands as we were driving through.  Next time.

Day two was a success.  Supercharging makes this stuff easy.

The current Supercharger locations.  As you can see there is just one choice for our route form Chicago to Los Angeles.
