We have started our epic 30 day western adventure to the west/northwest. It's always fun to read all of the stories so thought I would pass ours along. We have taken our 12 year old out of school for a month & heading west. We left from MS eleven days ago. The first few days I drove hard to get as far as we could. We stayed in Cabelas parking lot in Kansas City the first night (our first boondocking). From there headed to Mt Rushmore. We stayed at Custer State Park in SD. One of the nicest parks we've stayed at. Beautiful! They were having a buffalo round up to tag & vaccinate the herd. Pretty interesting. From there we headed to Mt Rushmore & then to the Grand Tetons. Stopped at Devils' Tower along the way. Hit some bumps & lost the television along the way. Rattled loose from bracket & pulled cable out of back of it. Likely shot. I don't like television, anyway so fine with me, lol. We stayed at Signal Mountain at Grand Teton NP. Another great campground (a little pricey $50 per night). Tetons are gorgeous. Wanted to see a bear but no luck. Saw lots of elk & deer. We went into Yellowstone & stayed at Grizzly RV park in West Yellowstone. Great park & stayed for off season rates, very reasonable. Meticulously kept. Finally saw a bear on Slough Creek Road & lots of buffalo. Couldn't see Grand Prismatic due to the steam. From there headed to Glacier NP. Ran into snow & couldn't make it to St Mary visitor center. First drive with [email protected] in snow. Made it fine. Went down to West Glacier. Not much to see there due to Sun road closed. Stayed at North American RV. Great folks (from MS, lol). Had the park pretty much to ourselves. Washed the [email protected] & TV there. Drove MT 49 (I think) from East Glacier to St Mary. The drive over was better than the drive inside the park IMO. From Glacier heading to Olympic. Loving the trip together & so far we haven't tried to kill each other but we're only a 1/3 of the way in. We were planning on going into Sonoma area in a few days but noticed they are having fires (hope everyone is ok in that area). I have enjoyed the drive from park to park more than the parks. Beautiful country. My wife said she thought we were rural but we don't hold a candle to the folks in MT & WY. Funny, we haven't seen the first [email protected] since we left MS. We hoped to have breakfast with the East to West WA group but didn't make it. Hope to meet some more [email protected] along the way.
Hope the pictures aren't too big. Let me know if I need to resize them.
