@Larry71490. Yeah I-25 continuing will be nice. But the wait for I-80 to Utah and US-93 from Jackpot has taken longer. I am excited for Jackpot getting added to finally. Raton to Ft. Collins will be nice though. We also square up with I-70 with
I-25. It will be another step closer to another Interstate being complete. Currently only I-5 is the only complete Interstate. I-15 is close but we need Montana. It would be nice to get I-15 and I-25 completed before I-35 kicks in.

@flight50 I agree 100%. More completed interstates the better.

I'm really looking forward to a Colorado Springs to Boise delivery. Or vice-versa.

Shape like... ugh... like a chicken leg? I guess. The map becomes more boxy and less awkwardly-shaped. That's the idea.

Lol, chicken leg eh. Well when Oklahoma comes, I think the chicken leg will already be in the game with Texas. That stretch of road was like 30-40 miles, I can't remember but I posted about it a few weeks back. That gap makes no sense so I am sure we will get US-385/ US-287 as a Colorado/Texas link without requiring Oklahoma in the game. US-287 is a major truck route from North Texas to Colorado.

@KnuteOle. Boise to Colorado does sound cool but I will have to go further as one of my routes. I am thinking Ontario, Or to Raton, NM. That way, I get all the new I-84 in, the best parts of I-70 and the newest part of I-25. When new dlc's come, I always set up my new HQ is the largest/most popular city just for fun. So when Idaho comes, I'll move from SLC to Boise. Relocating is always my first run in the new dlc. Then when Colorado arrives, I'll move to Denver from Boise as my first run. So from Boise to Denver I'll go, grinning the whole way once I past US-191 @ I-70 currently in the game.

Once I move to Denver, the fun will really start. I think Colorado will be the first state that I explore within 1-2 weeks. Normally I try to stretch the fun for 2-3 months. But I been waiting and anticipating Colorado for so long, that I will dive right in. I think once I get to Denver I will get a load to NM. Hopefully Sante Fe or Albuquerque. That way I can hit US-550 and run it all the way up into Colorado. Hopefully I can get a load to Grand Junction or Vernal, Ut. I'll get as close as I can to knocking out the 2 roads I want to drive so bad. After that, I need to check out the GP in Colorado or US-40. Which every comes first.

If in Denver you would run 25 to Albuquerque. You would have to take a load to Farmington, NM or Gallup to hit 550.

@Larry71490. Noooo, US-550 in Colorado, lol. If I get a load from Santa Fe/Albuquerque I can run up US-550 in both NM and Colorado. As long as I can get to US-50 in Colorado to complete my US-550 run, I am good. But I am willing to go beyond
US-50/I-70 or Grand Junction if that is where the load takes me. I figure Vernal via CO-139 could do that. There will have to be some road that connects I-70 to US-40 in Western Colorado.

@flight50 I know that but to get to 550 from Denver a load to Farmington will get you to 550.
