Tom, I have sent several emails to Kim. Not seeing any email responses. Maybe there is another thread that I should be referencing for more current updates.

This is the only thread. Just be patient. He might be somewhere without a signal.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Hi Patty,

I believe there is another thread or email that Kim wants attendees to use.  That's according to an email I received from Tom J. last week.  I have to dash out and do some last minute shopping but I will get back to you via email.

Patty, actually right above your recent post, Tom J., the Forum Administrator, posted a link to the 2016 YPN Rally thread for attendees.  If you click "Here" in Tom's posting it will take you to the other thread with Kim's instructions and information that he wants attendees to email to him.  Let me know if you have already tried this.  Email me if I can help.

Patty,

After a lot of digging, it appears McAfee security software, unbeknownst to me, found your email unfit to deliver, and buried it in my Outlook folders. I have located them all, I think, and will be sorting all of that out shortly.

I apologize for the inconvenience but I was upgrading my systems and was not familiar with a newer version and how it interacted with Outlook.  :'(

Mystery solved!

I don't think there would be any horseback riding, still snow out there in the back country.  There are several outfitters around, I'll try to find some links.

Thanks for the comment.  Maybe there are other options for guided tours of the remote areas?  We've been there a few times in the past and always say, "Next time, we are going to find a way to visit some of the back country places that we hear about".  We've read about X=country ski tours; snowmobile tours; horse-back tours; hiking tours; etc but before we pick something off the web, we thought we ask here if anyone has suggestions.

For those who had to survive 2015 before planning for 2016, we hope you made it in good shape. But it's a new year, time to start scheduling, and the Yellowstone 2016 Rally is just 127 days from now!

See this FAQ if you have not yet put your name on the list, see who is on the list, and get some other current information.

We are starting to make some harder plans on how to structure this rally which will be a little different than some you may have attended because of the vast amount of ground everyone has to cover in a day's time and we want to be sure to integrate the newbies with the more experienced as it relates to both RV'ing and Yellowstone itself.


Get on the list! If your plans change, we can deal with it!

This is our first rally and our first trip to Yellow Stone. This is not our first trip in our MH. Last year we went to Vegas, South and North rim Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion. We traveled for over a month. This year Yellow Stone is just our first stop. We are making plans now but we intend to stay out over a month again this year. I can hardly wait.

     Gary I hate to pick Wendy over you, actually I don't mind it at all, but she is right.  However, if you hit Kim's link, in the first post, there is a FAQ link, and that one works.  Kim, it might be best if you fix the link or a lot of people won't get to it.

     Gary I'm not picking on you, but if you keep leading with your chin, well that fair game.  But, I'm glad to hear that your loose screw has been found, it isn't fun running around with a screw loose.   ;)
