Best Western Torchlite Motor Inn

We had to get up at a ridiculously early hour (5:30 a.m.) to pack up and leave to get to the Denver U.S. Mint in time for our 8 a.m. tour. You need to be there 30 mins. before the tour begins and parking is interesting in that area. All are pay lots. I found a $5 all day lot two blocks straight down from the Mint. Part of the fun of finding the …
Of the past week myself and the JOH cyclists on the Trans America team have cycled over 535 miles. This week has consisted of two days off and five days of over 100 miles each. Gotta say I'm pretty proud of myself and my teammates. I was able to give my folks and little bro a call and catch up with them. I'm having a great time out here on the road and I can't wait to see them all in ...
... and there was only one other camper there. We unpacked, relaxed a bit, checked out email and facebook and had a salad with chicken evening meal. Sprinkles set in so we went to bed early - even before it got dark. Because we got to bed early, we were both up early at about 5:30 am - and on the road before 6:30 am. Its a good thing too, as about 5 people who work for the town started showing up at their shop which was next to our campsite.

The road to Cheyenne and beyond takes me to Newcastle, then home to Custer. Today' s drive is uneventful for sights. I have been fighting 35 mph winds, but Bertha can handle those.
Along the way I saw an interesting billboard ... come to Chugwater and try Chugwater Chili! How could I pass this up? I exited at the Chugwater exit (only one) drove to main street and took a left. Chugwater has ...

There is little that can be said - it's a small town with one restaurant and bar which after following 2 locals directions,(you think after 3 now bad experiences, we would learn not to do this) and Julie ringing the local police, we got there in the end.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBest Western Torchlite Motor Inn Wheatland
This is one night we did not have reservations, so as nightfall was approaching we stopped at the motor inn. It has been years since I have stayed at a Best Western due to the poor quality I had found. This one was a very pleasant surprise. The room was clean, the beds comfortable, the owner very helpful and informative of the area, the breakfast offered both hot and cold entrees, and coffee is always available. Although close to Hwy 25, the room was quiet. Not much to do here but it was a pleasant one night stay.
