OK -- thanks, Kim. The F-150 is 4WD with 20" tires, but of course it's somewhat large with a long wheelbase, so that would determine whther it could make it on a trail. Barring something really attractive, then, I'll just plan on the F-150.

Thanks.

Kim,

I started to dewinterize the Beaver and encountered a water leak. Naturally the shops nearby are all booked up. Is it possible to transfer my reservation to a cabin instead? We still want to make this rally, but I'm afraid the Beaver won't be ready soon, especially if it turns out to be the water manifold itself (as I suspect).

Thanks.

That sucks Larry.  Sorry to hear you won't be bringing the coach.

Marty there are some trails over in the Gravely range.  Not serious 4wd but great sightseeing.

Cool, I don't need to hard core rock climb to have a good time. Sometimes it's just nice to get off of the beaten path and see what's out there.

Bill, who is very familiar with the area, and I just had a short discussion and if folks need a break from the park, there are several interesting Jeep day trips that could be easily added to the agenda. No rock crawling but some great scenery and manageable off the pavement stuff.

Thanks, Mike -- me too. But at least I've found an alternative way to attend; better than nothing.

Load the Jeep on a trailer and pull behind the 150.

Due to the recent snow some of the off road trails may be a bit muddy.  There are other day trip options for those who might get board with the park.

Crap...due to a couple of unexpected delays...we're not going to get out of here until Friday now...That SHOULD put us in West Yellowstone mid-day on Sunday. (could POSSIBLY arrive late Saturday...but I doubt it.) No hurry...I'm taking a vacation from my vacation!  :P  (and maybe one of youse folks will turn on the heat there so it's not so danged cold! )  ;D

Aaah, that heater takes a while to get things warm, but it does pretty well by mid-morning, then slacks off in the evening... ::)

Sorry 'bout your vacation2...

Disappointed we can't get to the Gallatin Roadhouse - that is good food! At least the trip to Bullwinkle's will be close.

I think Bullwinkle's was the place we ate at in September and it was quite good as well.

Larry N,

There are no off road adventures in Yelllowstone. You won't need a Jeep unless you plan on adventures outside the Park. There are a couple of drives out of Cook City in the Northeast area but not worth it if there aren't any other areas you want to explore.

It was the place we ate at last year.  I have always had good food there.  It should be a great evening.

Off to the Bozeman airport to pick up Corinne. :)

Hello everyone,

Max and Eric will be arriving on Sunday.  We have a few repair issues that can probably wait until we get to West Yellowstone.  If we can't deal with the repairs on our own hopefully there will be an RV service in the area.

1.  No hot water after the dealer dewinterized the TT.
2.  Rear electric stabilizing feet not working.  Worst case is we have to manually operate.
3.  We forgot to adjust the height of the hitch to match up with the new RAM.

So nothing major.

See you on Sunday.

We got kind of a late start...but as much crap as my wife kept hauling out to the coach...(it was ALL her fault...trust me)... :P I decided I'd better run it across a scale before setting out. Woohoo! We had over 2000 lbs to spare!
We hit the road at 12:30 and made it to Spokane. If everything goes well...we SHOULD make Bozeman tomorrow, and West Yellowstone on Sunday.

1.  No hot water after the dealer dewinterized the TT.

Check to make sure that the bypass valve on the water heater is not in the bypass position. If you are not sure, DO NOT put power to the water heater unless you are CERTAIN there is water in the tank. You can burn out the heating element and ruin the tank.

We just had a mini rally before the rally.  We are in Ogden, Utah and met up with Mike & Chrystal Zuech (zmotorsports) for dinner and some quality catching up time.  Our forum Framily are the best.  Planning to leave Ogden around 8am tomorrow.  Should put us there around 3pm.  Looking forward to it.
