east to west travel to yellowstone
« on: April 01, 2011, 06:47:47 pm »
Hi Phoenix Cruiser Comrades:

As you all know by now, we are going to Yellowstone this year. Wondering about going through the big horn mountains.  We were going to enter through the east entrance(going  west) but now considering going down through the badlands into the Tetons and exit through the east entrance(going home east bound) of Yellowstone and come home via route 14. I know 14 is  tricky at best.  Has anyone done this(tom hanlon?) Also, is the grizzly and wolf center really worth the stop? wavecow

David, I sent you a private message.

We no longer own a PC. We had two of them and loved them both. Due to changing health and no longer camping, we wanted a touring coach. Phoenix does not make a class B so we had to turn to a Winnebago Travato 59K in March 2018

I don't know if your boys already have cameras or not. If they don't you might want to get them each a small cheap digital camera and tell them to take pictures of what they think is neat. Then you forget about having giving them the cameras and let them do their own thing. When you get back, each one can have a show and tell with the family. You might be surprised at what they take pictures of and how often. :) :-D

When we returned from Yellowstone in our 2350 last year we used the East entrance and stopped in Cody, WY for a few days at the KOA (there's a shuttle to most of the major attractions and a bus to the Rodeo).
In addition to watching the Gunfight at the Irma Hotel and taking a Trolley tour, we went to the Rodeo (every night from June 1 through August 31) and Buffalo Bill Historical Center. Worth the ride is the Chief Joseph Highway to U. S. 212 and over Beartooth to Red Lodge, MT (& back to Cody).

Cody is a great little town, very patriotic and friendly (and the Wyoming Steak House had a truly wonderful steak).
Carry on, regardless..................

yes, our friend Tom Hanlon suggested the same thing,  that is now on our scheduled trip.  The steak he did not mention, but I did show your post to my wife who is the steak eater in our family.  Her father spoiled her as a kid as they had steak at least once a week for dinner. Did I mention she grew up on a farm?

Hi Dave.

The Irma Hotel also has pretty good food in addition to a somewhat 'Hokey" but fun gunfight.
BUT, not as good as the place across the street (Sheridan Ave.) I mentioned.

I really love that little town and if I had my druthers, I'd move there.

Safe travels and if you need anything, I'm just around the corner.
