So we wrapped up our time with Taylor on July 12th, when Anita put her on the plane in Salt Lake City bound for Orlando. She made it home fine, and now is an expert at flying. Anita and I left Echo Island RV in Coalville, UT, and headed for our first stop in a National Forest Dispersed Campground. We had about 280 miles to drive and got into Jackson Hole, WY about 2 PM. There we stopped and dropped the truck, and headed another 30 miles or so to the campground. We planned to go to Upper Teton View Campground which was a couple miles off US 191. So we pulled off onto the rough dirt road headed to the campground, and Anita went ahead to scout the site. As I was waiting on her, a National Forest Volunteer stopped and asked if I was planning to go "UP" to that campground. When I said yes, he recommended we consider a different camping area a mile up 191, and about 2 miles on a different NF road. He said there were plenty of sites, and the campground would be much better for our size coach. We took his advise and ended up in site 2 of the Bridger-Teton National Forest dispersed camping area. It has no hookups, but we were prepared for that with full fresh and empty black/grey tanks, and plenty of fuel to run the generator as needed. We were a little concerned about bears, so we built a big campfire and drank beers until dark. Watched part of an old movie we had on DVD since there is no satellite reception, and got a good night's sleep. Today has been some cleaning and catch-up work on travel logs and some work. Tonight we're planning steaks on the grill, hopefully without any bear attention.
