Anyone want to spend a weekend in yellowstone this summer? I was thinking the first weekend in August. I thought we could all meet in West Yellowstone and drive the Northern loop. Then campout in yellowstone for a night and finish the loop coming out at Grand Teton. Then head into Jackson for some afternoon shopping. I know gas prices are going to suck, which makes it much harder to do this trip. With my injuries where they are I am unable to work anymore and my income has fallen considerably. So I am trying to stay close to home for a vacation. Yellowstone is only a 2 hour drive for me, and about 41/2 for the Utah group.

Well it is just an idea for now.

Let me know if anyone can do this.

Thanks
Shane

Will do, I try to make it there at least once a year. Yet I have never done the northern loop. I am thinking the weekend of the 4Th-5Th. My kids start school on the 12Th, so this would be our last weekend for the summer. That is usually when we go anyways. So put that date down and see if it works with your schedule. I will be working on maps and sites to see. i will make a complete plan out and get it posted in a while.

I want to go so badly!  We are going to make it out there in the next five years.  If you go every summer, we will definately have to make it there together.  Please post lots of pictures for me, and there is nothing wrong with taking pictures of your truck.......it is a great color.

We are going to Yellowstone on the 20Th, 21st and 22ND. We are going to be celebrating her 36 years old. I was hoping some of my Utah family could come out and say Happy B-day with me. Monday would be the best since we are going to be at Old Faithful. I know it is short notice, but U was hoping you guys could come thru for me on this. I am hoping to use some of if not all you as part pf her present.

Thanks
Shane
