Fly to Jackson. Rent a car. Stay in hotels and lodges. You will have 12 days to explore the area

I'll add my 2 cents, I always tried to follow Busskipper's rule: be ready the night before you leave, and leave after work Friday. now that I and wife are retired, we try to be ready the night before and leave early the next morning. I have no problem driving hard the first couple days to make miles, so we can spend time at destination, (DW doesn't always agree with me on this). If your wife can drive, that will help with driver fatigue, I always said if I want to just relax, I can do that at home. on vacation- want to see/do things I wouldn't normally get. As to your itinerary, i'd follow the advice given by many here and limit to the Yellowstone/GTNP area. The easiest time I found thru Chicago area was 1-2 am returning from Maine to Nebraska, probably not going to help you much. Did you mention how old the kids were? try to have plenty to keep them busy in the MH on some of the long mile days, more than just videos. Above all, get out and enjoy!

we’ll never do that again.

at the start we switched off every 2-hrs until we arrived at SLC at midnight where we switched to 4-hr driving shifts to better help us rest. i took the first 4-hrs and the view coming down the eastern slope was magnificent. no sat radio in those days but the AM reception was teriffic.

by the tine we stopped for breakfast...don’t even recall where that was...we felt like we hadn’t showered in days. back to 2-hr shifts for the last segment to Des Moines. when we arrived in Des Moines (no hotel reservations) it took about half an hour to find a room where we collapsed.

the next day was a relatively short” 6-hr drive home. back to work the next day. as i said, never again.
