     Sorry Max, you'll have to come to come to the Canadian Maritimes like Gary did last summer, or wait for us to take one of our infrequent trips west like we did to Q last year.

Max, what part of MN are you from?  I grew up in St. Paul.  Still have a daughter and grand daughter in Minnesota and get back every year or two.

Max, to answer your question, we'd like to be a part of the Yellowstone party, but 2016 is going to be a busy year.    So we will not know for sure for another month or two.  Regardless it's a fun group and you will enjoy the trip.  Yellowstone is beautiful.  Lots to see and if you're with a group that knows the area, you'll see more.  The wife and I were there last August and saw things I've never seen in four prior trips.

demag88, there are car rentals in West Yellowstone, Mt if you're staying there during your trip. Not sure how many there are, but any should be fine. Jackson, Wy. has some too, I know at the airport if you're coming in that way to Yellowstone. Good Luck!

Paul & Retta,

We will be staying over in Grizzly, but the actual rally will end Sunday, May 21. There are several car rental places in town, including the Yellowstone airport. It's probably not practical to use anyone outside of town because of the distance, unless you pick one up on the way in.

You are also hitting Memorial Day (May 30) and I would make any arrangements ASAP. It gets pretty nutty starting that weekend and that is one of the reasons I chose to start the rally earlier.

I'm sure all you veteran travelers to Yellowstone and the area are aware of Live Cams that you can view, but for those that haven't been there, go to Facebook and enter Live Cams. You will see a list come up and you can watch Cams in Yellowstone and Jackson Hole. This way you can see the area and keep up with the weather or other things going on. My husband goes to these cams daily and enjoys doing that! Hope this has given someone some new info that will come in handy.

We love Yellowstone and the stops between here and there. We were there in early June 2013 on our way to Alaska. When we tried the NE exit, we ran into a huge snow storm that closed the pass we were planning to take. Otherwise, the weather was great. Having attended the Palo Duro Canyon rally last year and another one six years ago, we're interested in joining this one. But I have to schedule a driveway paving project for May this week before I can signup. Looks like it would be a lot of fun.

When we stayed at a park just outside the West exit, we couldn't get Verizon for our phones and the park's wi=fi was off. Is it any better now?

Yellowstone LiveCams.  One in the Visitor center that updates every 20 seconds or so, I randomly go outside and wave at it.  The other one is streaming and is counterclockwise around 90 degrees back.  Looks down the geyser basin.  This one can be remotely controlled by a group of geyser watchers.

The Park cell service has been upgraded over the last 2 summers.  Still not great, but Verizon is the best bet.

It's more than 10 years since we entered Yellowstone from the West.  At the time we weren't RVing and I didn't pay attention to the grades.  We will likely have our 99 Aerbus for the trip and I'd like to know if there are any routes to avoid.  If all goes according to plan we'll have our a Jeep which weighs about 1,000 lbs more than our HHR.  When we visited Yellowstone last year and entered via Cody, we never took the Aerbus through the park.  We had enough fun coming through the mountains just getting to Cody.  I'd appreciate any advise on routes from So California.  FWIW, when we drove through in 2006, we hit snow in June.  Nothing major, but for the wife, who was driving the F250, and grew up in So Cal, it was a bit unnerving.

I added another topic, YNP Trip Planning, for folks who need more specific information on the who, what, where, and why and so it will gather traffic for those who need routing information, stops enroute, etc.


This is a major undertaking for many folks and I would not want anyone to have a "campfire story" because we did not share enough information.  8)

We are planning to go the Grand Tetons for three days after the rally.  (May 22, 23, and 24.) We will be making reservations at Colter Bay RV Park in the next few days.  If anyone is interested in joining us please PM me.  They have full hookups and they take reservations.  The website says they give a discount to Golden Age pass holders.  http://www.gtlc.com/rv/colter-bay-rv-park

Not to wreck anything for anyone at all, but visiting the Tetons is earmarked on the planning calendar as a suggestion for one of the many day trip options during the rally.

While a day does not necessarily do it justice, for those who don't have the extra space in their schedule, it will likely be an option for the rally week.

You would not want to be denied the attached views...  8)

Thanks Jeff and Anita.  We made reservations at North Shore Bay Campground.  Campsite - BBNS5.  Check in 5/22.  Check out 5/25. (3 nights)  We are looking forward to visiting all the museums in Cody and maybe a little down time.  After that we are headed back to the Grand Tetons for a few days but haven't decided where to stay yet.

We were in Yellowstone last week for a snow coach tour - very nice. We took a look at some of the FS and BLM campgrounds along the way and decided we would just find a nice spot along a river for a few days before heading home after the rally. Anyone else interested can take a look at the Allstays app (or your campsite finder of choice) to see the options. Some of the sites only take smaller trailers like ours, but there are spots for even the big rigs most of you seem to have. Lots of places along the Snake are good.
