Let me know what you think of that route & if your staying in Cody try & eat at Wild Bills Hotel & be sure & check out his museum on the far west end of town it's unbelievable.

We just did that route last month in a 37' gasser..and I researched beforehand, My suggestion take I90 out of Rapid City to Gillette (nice Walmart for quick overnight) to Bufflalo (one hour drive to Custer's Last Stand) then 16/20 through Worland and Grey Bull onto 14/16 into Cody (Ponderosa RV Park good choice). We got many advisories NOT to take 14A and saw a picture of one of its S-turns with no guardrail. Wouldn't do that road on a 15 MPH moped with no one around!!) Onto east entrance of Yellowstone, go through the park by taking the north loop from Fishing Bridge, head towards NORRIS and (memory fails me but ask the ranger at the entrance gate) and you'll come out the west entrance into the city of West Yellowstone. We stayed at Buffalo Crossing RV park..good choice..$50/night but that's the going rate therel..make reservations in advance for rv parks in West Yellowstone. GREAT park....plan on 5-7days to see it all. Enjoy it as much as we did!!

Having done last summer just what you're going to do, I'd do what we did - I-90W to 191S into West Yellowstone.... We did it in a 40' DP with a toad and it was a really good route.....

We just did the Powder River Pass 5 days ago, went west to east pulling a Jeep. I put the V-10 in Drive 3, maintained 3500 rpm's and up we went . . . .at about 40 mph. Not a whole lot of traffic on that road. I did have a point where I had two cars behind me, came to a pull out, so I moved over, the 1st car passed, the 2nd held back for some reason and I ran out of road so I had to stop to let him pass, this ended my momentum, took me a little bit to get back up to "my speed". At 8300 feet I thought I was on top of the world, my daughter then reminded me we had another 1300 to go. The scenery on the west side with it's steep rock canyons was spectacular, so glad I did it. The east side, our downside, was beautiful in it's own right, rolling timber filled hills, long way down, no problems, just took it slow.

WARNING: Hwy 16 from Newcastle to Custer is under "major" road construction..... on the Wyoming side and on the S. Dakota side. There is a section near Custer where there is no road at all for about 5 miles . . . pure mud, I swear the road crews were making bets on the side whether one was going to make it through or not.
