DW and I were in Yellowstone 2 years ago on our Goldwing motorcycle. Some dumba$$ in a rental RV stopped in the road, right in the middle of a rutting herd of bison, to get the family out to take a "memorable photo" from their trip. We got stopped in the traffic jam and the herd started to get agitated all around us and the others. We looked for any way out but the cars and RV's had us blocked. Luckily a Ranger got through with their noise maker to disperse the herd and get the traffic moving. When we passed the RV the Ranger was giving them some sort of "award" for stupidity. Hope it cost them a bundle of money.

It is hard to appreciate how exposed you feel in that situation.

PLEASE DO NOT STOP TO DO STUPID THINGS.

In Yellowstone, elk mating season. Two buck elks, in a discussion, with BIG horns, about whose territory it was. Two tourists, with flash cameras, trying to get a closeup of mad Elk, about 2-3 hundred yards out in a field, with a fence between them and an car or shelter. Lucky nobody got hurt too bad. But boy could those tourists run!!

All they have to do is turn it into their regular auto insurance policy provider. They'll have to pay the deductible, but that's all.

Maybe. Not all policies are the same. Coverage does not always follow to a renal car. It also doesn't always cover the "extras" that some rental companies will make you pay for such as lost revenue on the vehicle.
Honestly, I've never heard of an auto policy with comp & collision coverage that did not extend to a rental. I've asked a couple of insurance agents in the past and they affirmed this.

The weird thing about insurance, it charges you for every little tweak in coverage, you pay for every little tweak in coverage, and both you and the insurance company hope you never have to use it. [emoticon] [emoticon]

Course, when you need it, you need it and glad you paid for every little tweak.

Could be a thing of the past. Best thing to do is ask your agent to find out.

We got surrounded by bison in Yellowstone last month for about 30 minutes but we were on our Harley not in the RV. No where to hide either on the Harley or off. Just held our breath, stayed quiet and didn't make eye contact.

Same thing, except we were on bicycles. Fortunately there were compassionate pickup truck drivers that came to our rescue twice. The only safe transport through bison country is an armored vehicle.
