Lots of great suggestions, thanks! We're pulling a 35 foot TT. Most of this is going to be "windshield tourism". Combination of age, knees and hips rules out any real hiking. We made one trip about 10 years ago and we know we only saw a fraction of what's out there. At this point we're thinking 6 to 8 weeks this time around.

What is 553 miles after a trip of 6,000 (?) miles RT. Someone from Maine needs to see the SW more that the view of I90


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

We stopped at the Devils Tower just noth of I90 in northeast Wyoming. We really enjoyed it. We stayed at the KOA at the base of the tower. Nice 2 night stop.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park has nice driving access and is on the way if you take a northern route.

If you want to get off the Interstate for a while check out RT 2 runs east and west and will let you see the way people live.If you do go to Custer SP check out the"iron Mountain" road

I second Theodore Roosevelt if you take the northern route. It's overlooked and an awesome place.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

I third it, awesome place, we stayed at the Southern unit, one night we had one of those big bulls walk under our awning, I've seen photos of them scratching themselves on people's slide outs.
