Have a safe and enjoyable trip Rich & Kay and children. Keep us posted on how things are doing, if you needed other days, etc. Thanks in advance. I'm sure there are lots of us that want to do the same thing. Your advice will be appreciated.

What a great trip.
We did a similar trek back in '03 with a pop-up. A little more time in the East/Midwest, and 10 days in California. Had a fantastic time. You'll love the Nat'l parks - we did Rocky Mtn, Teton, Tellowstone, Olympic, Mt. Rainier, and Yosemite then; did Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon in 2004 with our TT and RAM.

That sounds like a great trip. We've been to all of those places and it sounds like you have a great selection there. If you haven't been west of Ohio you are going to be in for a real treat. There's a whole new area of God's creation out there just waiting to knock your socks off. And each area is unique in it's own way. Your biggest problem will be leaving it to go home. There's just not enough time to see it all. That would take more like 3 months. I think after this trip you'll find you'll be heading back to certain areas every now and then. Enjoy the trip.

I hope your trip is truly relaxing and enjoyable for your family. We like the Western U.S.A. very much, and plan to travel a large circuit beginning with the Northern route on September 1 and returning December 1. The time involved and the attractions we desire will take lots of time. We have been to many of the places on your list and it is a rush to completly see some of them in the time you have alloted. Yellowstone can be rushed through in 4 days, however, a full week is much more relaxing, especially in full tourist season. Reservations are usually required at Yellowstone in the summer also.
