Hilton head sc to yellowstone in june 2012

We are planning a trip from Hilton Head SC to Yellowstone June-July 2012. We want to take our time and visit Mt Rushmore, Devils Tower and drive the Beartooth Byway. We want to spend several days in Wyoming and Montana before heading to Washington State, Vancouver and Oregon.

If anyone wants to join us, we plan on staying in military campgrounds as much as possible.

That sounds like an awesome trip!!

I have one recommendation; Yellowstone (and some parks in Oregon, like Ft. Stevens) can have horrible misquitos and no-see-um's (like the sand fleas in Beaufort). You might want to consider bringing along one of those pop up screen rooms, similar to this (Mosquito Control - Easy PopUp Screen Room). This way you can stay outside, enjoy your fire, and not be eaten alive.

Just spent a week at Fort Steven's and didn't bring one and it was miserable. The misquitos were huge and the biting no-see-um's were getting through my bigger TT door screen to the TT interior. Killed over two hundred, one night, and had to leave the hard door shut. Will be replacing the screen for finer made one.

However, those people who did bring their screen rooms were outside enjoying their fire and meals :(

Bug proof RV door, including no-see-um: Remove screen door to flat surface. Remove spline from screen (do one section at a time if in sections) careful not to move screen. Lay sheer curtain over screen section - trim to about 1" over opening size. Return spline to groove installing sheer over screen. Trim any extra spline, trim sheer to screen size. Do next section until door has sheer curtain over all screen surface. Rehang door. Done with 2 TT, 2 fifth wheel, 1 Class C, now second Class A screen door. No bugs get thru this but fresh air will. I think we paid $4 for a white sheer curtain section at Wally World. You could use any color or pattern that suits your fancy.
