Thanks for all the responses. I agree, it's a lot of driving and given my choice, I would love to take a month or more to travel the same route. As I'm not retired, I can only take two weeks off of work and the only real hard stop we have for the trip is Vernal, UT to see our son. We arrived in Vernal last night and will be here until Sunday. So far we've logged 2,739 miles on the rig and all is well, except the generator (another story I'll post later) quit on day 3 and have to rely on the inverter for 115 vac on the road. Luckily, the weather has been awesome! It was 105 / humid when we left NC (yuk) and was the same until we got into LA. We spent a couple of nights in New Orleans (first time) and had a great time. The weather was about 90 and felt much better than what we had when we left home. Visited our friends on Houston and reminisced about the old days when we lived in FL. Spent a day in Amarillo. Then a day in Bluff, UT and Moab/arches. That was great and would have really liked to spend more time in both of those areas. The weather in UT was really cool. The nights were in the 50's and most of the time it was below 80 during the day. We decided to skip the Grand Canyon for this trip and will also skip MT. Rushmore in order to spend more time in Yellowstone.

I think that you made a good choice in bypassing some areas until next time! When you drive out west most folks don't realize the distences involved as well as the time to see Y'stone. If you want somemore information about Y'stone/Grand Tetons/Jackson areas PM me.

We are going to Jackson Monday to pick up my significant ther's grandson. He can fly from Atlanta to Jackson, WY cheeper than to either SLC, Idaho Falls etc.
