Hi Acropilot:
Were are you coming from. We came out west in a 32ft Baystar towing a Chevy Equinox. While in Fishing Bridge my refrig needed a repair so I went to Cody and stayed at the Ponderosa. I liked it so much I stayed a week and drove the Chief Joseph, and the Beartooth Scenic highways. Thank God for Digital Cameras, I took over 2000 pictures. The worst part of the trip was driving there from Florida through La and Tx. If you are coming from a distance pay attention to the weather and road conditions and don't push it. You can't speed in a class A gasser pulling a toad so don't try.

Acropilot, I'd suggest bypassing Teton Pass unless you just love to stress your chassis. The road isn't that bad, but there's not much to see on the back side of the Tetons (except the giant potato on a farm wagon at a closed drive-in theatre) I'd go Cody, south to Jackson, then return up through GTNP and into Yellowstone again, this time going up past Old Faithful. You'll see lots more wildlife and be in the NPs instead of an Idaho state highway. Stop in Moose for lunch at Dornan's teepees, drive in your toad out Antelope Rd. to Gros Ventre slide for a bit of natural history, (and a swimming hole in hot springs along the way) A hike to Hidden Falls behind Jenny Lake is a nice easy walk. While the parking lots and visitor centers are always bustling, get a couple hundred yards down a trail, (or out of sight of the parking lots) and you still can have a neat experience one-to-one with nature.

Acropilot, the more driving you do IN the parks, the more gas you'll save, since the top speed is 45 mph. Last year, driving my toad in the park, I got 53 mpg never topping the limit! Normal mpg is 43, so speed kills mpg!
