My suggestion would be to see if there are any neighbors or friends who may have a college-age son who would like to go along. Then you would know the family. Maybe through a local church or service club? It would seem to be preferable to know the person BEFORE the trip!

Kevin, those are great suggestions! Particularly the local service club such as the Lions or church (even if you are not an attending member). Craigslist would be my last resort.

Yes, finding someone that you can at least get some good references on would be paramount. This works both ways, as if I was the fellow asked to go on a trip like this with someone I did not know, I would want to check them out too.

I could write a whole crime/horror/comedy show around this idea. But now that Tom has applied for the job, I suspect that the wife might be having second thoughts.

All that said, going to Yellowstone in mid July is kinda like goin' to the Zoo at feeding time, even the guy that turns Old Faithful on and off takes a vacation to NYC to get away from the crowds.

I do hope that the op has already locked up reservations for eveything from a camping spot to a place in line at the gas station, it gets really crowded thereabouts in July

I don't get why you need someone to help drive!

You are towing a small TT, so towing is easy, when you get tired you can sleep in it, Yellowstone isn't that far from Vegas, and you will have a lot of company when you get there!

Yes tents ARE allowed in Yellowstone AND no, I'm not looking for a "Caregiver". AND no Yellowstone is NOT close to Las Vegas ......it's over 800 miles away. To give you the "punch line"......I'm REALLY looking for a partner that I can "OUTRUN" in case of bear attack!!!! Keep looking for me kids.

So one would know if they were to become Bear Bait, how fast can your wife run????

BTW: Las Vegas to West Yellowstone = 739 miles per mapquest, unless you want to take "Scenic" route US 93, then it's 806 miles

we watched "craigslist joe" on netflix a while back----perhaps the OP brian also saw that movie and is a supreme optimist


me---i am neither that trusting, nor that optimistic....and i read his post and thought---is this some kind of joke??

i guess it's not a joke because it's not funny....and jokes are supposed to be funny. or at least amusing. this is just scary.

Thanks to all who commented on my request for a driver/rider. I was serious in the fact that a 2nd driver /companion would be nice. I've not been to Yellowstone nor the Grand Tetons before, thought that I could take photos and absorb more scenery as a co-pilot. I was in a diving accident which left my back and neck messed up.....so long trips are painful. Thought that maybe a Forum member might know of an outdoor type person that could not afford a trip like this but could earn their passage by driving. Keep looking......

I take this as a serious request, and would consider doing it if I was in that part of the country. As to answering requests for help on craigslist, I answered a request for help from a young single mother who needed help in repairing her popup camper. After a few emails, and phone calls we met in a public location. I told her to bring someone with her for her safety, and she brought her cousin Jim. I took her trailer, repaired it, and took just enough money to cover the parts. Main issue is she was able to now take her kids camping. Brian, hope you can make your trip, and I wasn't trying to be a smartass about tents being not allowed, I just thought I had heard that somewhere. Bob

Thanks Bob. You did a good deed helping the young lady with her popup. Hope that I can help someone else enjoy our National Parks this summer. Wish that you were on the West Coast.
