Ok, it's easy for all the retirees(me included) to tell you to take longer and enjoy the Journey which is true if you can. But while you are still working you don't always have a choice but to do it at a pace that fits into your allotted vacation time. I know I have rushed more than my fair share of vacations but at the time it was worth it to me, and we got to see a lot of places we would eventually spend more time at once retired.

With that being said It is doable, but if there's any way you can extend your time by another week or even a few days I would do that. We did that trip in a car a few years ago and took two weeks and still wished we had more time. Either way make sure you hit Deadwood and Sturgis they are pretty cool to see and have a lot of history. Its a great Itinerary and you will have a great time.

Unfortunately our schedules limit our time. I would love the luxury of taking a month to visit this area but we both work. We will certainly be making this trip more than once. This trip is to get out there, see as much as we can, figure out what we missed for next time and help plan better for next time.

Planning a trip, need recommendations

Early on we decided that work life was way too structured and stressful to let it affect our weekends and vacations.
On Friday night the rig was packed and ready to roll. The next morning over coffee, we looked at the weather around us and pointed to the better direction and left. Yep, the best plan was No Plan!
We always found nifty and fun places that were new to us, and never ran out of grand scenery and the relaxation we needed so very badly. As we got more vacation we went a bit farther.
Our goal for adventure was always met, and the campfire time and stories and games with the kids left our brains much more prepared for the work that stacked up while we were gone.
We wish you happy trails on your upcoming Journey.

We tweaked our itinerary as best we could for the time allowed. 5 days in Yellowstone and 3 in Mt Rushmore. I feel this will be plenty for our first trip and we can always schedule more!
