Entering Yellowstone

Snow BallWe’re about to go to the dark side of the Moon. Almost. We’re actually driving up into Yellowstone National Park for a 4-night camping extravaganza, and there probably won’t be any sort of way to communicate. At least there wasn’t when we drove through Big Horn National Park, which was amazing. I’ve uploaded one picture to whet your appetites, more will be coming after we get back. Luckily my mother (henceforth referred to as “Mama,”) provided us a care package to supply us with a few warm meal options, including Tuna Helper! Now how did she know we loved tuna? : )

It’s also worth mentioning that we learned an important lesson about large vehicles. Trying to decelerate a 5000 pound vehicle over a 2000 foot drop in elevation can make your breaks catch on fire! Smoke, anyway. Apparently the sign that read “Trucks Use Low Gear” also applies to Class B RVs as well.

Give us a break, we’re computer guys.

(Edit: and by Yosemite, I meant Yellowstone :-))

Ohmygosh!!!! Guys, we were JUST in Yosemite National Park today! (Oct 21) We’re parked in Oakhurst at the foot of the park entrance (High Sierra RV Park) and took a day trip in our toad (tow car).

We loved Yosemite Valley so much, we plan to return with our RV Oct 24-26. Sounds like we *just* missed you!! (But, no cell or EVDO for us in the mountains either).

Hey, I hear ya on using gears to slow down - phew, gotta have strong arms to control all that weight/50′ of motorhome & toad.

Cheers,
Mari & Ty - your fellow travelers (& ultra vagabonds)

Haha.. sorry, my mistake, that was Yellowstone. We’ll be passing through the Yosemite area in a week or so, but unforunately it looks like we’ll have to breeze through it. Maybe we’ll pass ways elsewhere! :-)
