Trip to Yellowstone

I'm sorry to say I'm back.:sad
The 4000 mile trip was GREAT! The weather was perfect. No rain at all , amazing!!
Staying at KOA'a due to the holiday rush proved to be very nice.
No neighbors with loud generators anywhere Charles.
I must say tho the Miles City ,Montana could use a major updating ( last updated in the 60's I'd guess).
The others were very nice.
Sticky cottenwood stuff all over the place too.
First night was at a small campgound in Ashby, Mn - very nice
Sundowner campground - I recommend it.

Here's a list of the KOA's
Miles City, Mt - nah
West Yellowstone KOA - Very nice, peaceful
By the way ,across from me was a 13 ft Scamp from Tennesee and a 17 foor Casita from Texas. Very unusual. The Casitas owners name was Bob and didn't know about this site. I gave him the info- nice fella.
Sheridan Wy. - very nice, peacful Saw a Air Force loaner Casita that looke like it never was washed.
Spearfish SD. - Very nice, peaceful.
Visited some friends at the Mt. Rushmore KOA. Seemed nice , but very crowded and kinda crazy. SAw a Navy loaner Casita that looked worse than the Air Force one. I was glad I stayed at Spearfish. Also Spearfish served some really good Mexican food.
Mitchell SD. - Very nice, peaceful

We spent the last night at Goose Island County Campgorund just south of LaCrosse, Wi. One of my favorites.

Saw a lot of RV's parked at Wal-Marts overnight, so I guess that still works in a pinch.

In Mitchell,SD. I found a brand new left complete tailight for my 81' Burro with license bracket for 13 bucks. I couldn't believe my good luck!!!
My wife asked what the big deal was, I tried to explain but I don't think I got the idea across.

The Burro performed better than expected. I caravaned out to Yellowstone with two other trailers one a 27 foot big tall thing that was blown around by everthing that passed it. ( Equalizers , anti sways) the other a pop up behind a pickup.
Glad to be back and I hope all of you had some really good trips.
Wil try to get some pics up A.S.A.P.

Hi Pete!

Welcome home (although I understand your regrets to having to say you're home!)

Glad you had a good trip!

And good find on the tail light. I want details and pictures!

Thanks all.

Yeah I'm still buzzing over that tailight. It was the only one.
When the girl rang it up I asked her if its mate was around. She said she had never seen one like it before. I hung around for a while and asked all the older guys there, but that was the only one.

I was in Yellowstone about the same time you were Pete. However I stayed in the park at Bridge Bay as they had plenty of room. $9. a night with my Golden Age Passport and after 3 days at a KOA in Custer SD we decided to do some dry camping. We drove from the central coast of calif to Rice,tx got our new casita 16' LD and headed straight north thru tornado alley. Took backroads and at times I thought I was the only person in Neb and SD. We left yellowstone and back thru Reno to Monterey and completed a trip of 4,900 miles. However only 3,200 were with our new Casita. A great initial trip and no major problems. Got a couple of shorter trips planned after we get the bed and storage a bit more comfy.

Sorry our paths didn't cross Ernie,

Sure is a beautiful area. That Custer KOA sure was like being in the city. I'm glad we were staying in Spearfish.
Congradulations on your new Casita. I hope you have many, many good trips with it.

:wave Welcome home, Pete. Sounds like you had a great time.

Finding that tail light was just icing on the cake, eh?
