I'm looking forward to meeting the parents of the groom. Ellen & Pat recently moved to Ellensburg, Washington and are in the midst of fixing up an old farmhouse and the farm that goes with it. Ellen writes a wonderful blog about her transition from "city girl to country girl ... and God's great sense of humor..." Highly recommended!
Before we get there, we hope to enjoy the mountain vistas in Grand Teton and the wonders and wildlife in Yellowstone. We'll pick up our grandson and spend a few days in Glacier and a day in Idaho before the wedding, followed by visits to Mom's place, BJ's hiking friend's place in Oregon, and ghost towns in California.
Twenty-four nights with the longest travel days being just over 300 miles. It's a mixture of boondocking, National and State parks, Forest Service campgrounds, and commercial RV resorts. We're looking forward to power for the air conditioner at the lower elevations. Some of the places are going to be much more crowded than I'd like, but that's what you get when you visit popular National Parks in peak season. Because of the schedule, we're leveraging reservations as much as possible.
We'll be moving faster than I'd like, but we need to save a week of vacation for our almost annual Green River float trip in late September.
We're all hooked up and ready to go, other than a shorter than normal day at the office tomorrow before we head out of town. We'll try to do updates regularly assuming we can find wi-fi.
