Aug 31, 2014 - USA Holiday

We have now finished summer in the USA and tomorrow is the first day of fall. We spent our last day in Yellowstone driving the bottom loop, which takes you past Old Faithful and Yellowstone Lake. The whole area has changed so much since we were last here with a lot more new geyser activity and the roadway is quite damaged, the scientists say it's just the winter damage but other opinions are the whole area is becoming more active. We also saw a lot of bison in the Lamar valley area, there were herds with over 80 bison. Some were on the...

May 18, 2014 - Jackson Hole Wyoming

Last day in Tetons and like all Americans tourist do we went shopping to Jackson Hole Wyoming. Probably the most expensive small town, at least in my mind. There was a chili tasting event in the town square and we enjoyed having many small chili bowl for lunch. Jackson Hole, is a charming town with many art galleries, shops and restaurants almost all pricey but they all serving to the wealthy clientele. Median price of the sold house in 2013 was $1.3M and Sotheby and Christie real estate offices are in the town. We had a good time, spend...

Aug 25, 2013 - Aug 25, 2013 - 21st Stop - Jackson Hole, WY

Sunday Short trip today, only about 125 miles over the mountains. Lots of massive potato fields on the way in Idaho. Must be Idaho potatoes. We followed the Snake River quite a ways and it was filled with people in rubber boats large and small. I am amazed with the number of RVs on the road and in the RV Parks. Many are new Motor Homes and new trailers with new trucks towing them. The RV Parks are all full. Maybe folks are using this as a last chance for travel before the SHTF. We are! Monday Today's trip was through the Grand Teton Natl...

Jul 7, 2013 - Happy Trails to You

4:30am: Scott's family and Mom & Dad are off to the airport. It's really, really early. In fact, the airport is just opening when we arrive. After waiting a bit for the check-in counters to open, Scott & Michelle are able to check in with the kids. Their flight to Chicago is on time. Mom and Dad realize that they can't find Dad's iPhone. Uh oh! Since they have time before their flight, they decide to drive back to Cowboy Village to look inside the cabin. No luck there. They make it back to the airport in time for their flight out of...

Jul 6, 2013 - On The Road Again

9:30am was our target time for pulling out of the Yellowstone Lake Hotel. Everyone was up, packing, showering, and getting breakfast right on schedule. The boys loaded up the trucks with all of our luggage, coolers, and snacks. Just about right on schedule, we left Yellowstone and headed back to Jackson for our final day (well, it wasn't going to be the final day for everyone, but no one knew that yet...). The ride back allowed some of us to sleep, some to catch up on reading, some to play games, and others to just relax and listen to...

Jul 2, 2013 - Jump in the River

Whitewater rafting day! Everyone donned their bathing suits and Under Armour and headed off to Lewis and Clark Expeditions. All of the kids (except Colin) got wet suits and boy did they look cute! A 35 minute bus ride brought us to our launching site on the Snake River. Once our life vests were on, we met our guide, Christo, and carried the boat down to the water. Some of our party were rowers at the start: Colin, Scott, Ed, Michelle, Kristin, and Chuck. Christo gave us all a safety briefing at the start. During this time..."Cue: Eagle with...

Jul 1, 2013 - Back in the Saddle Again

We had some early risers today - and some sleepers. Scott was out photographing scenery at 6 am. Kids were playing in the driveway. Everyone was ready to roll around 9 am. We headed out to Jackson Hole Ski Resort in the Teton Village. The morning's highlight was the tram ride up to 10,400 ft. Everyone was awed by the amazing views of the Teton mountains. We even watched a hang glider prep his gear and take off. Everyone had a ton of fun playing on a "not yet melted" patch of snow. Once we returned from the tram ride, it was time for a yummy...

Jun 30, 2013 - Leaving on a Jet Plane

Arrival day for Scott and Kristin's families. (Mom and Dad flew in on Saturday.) First leg of the Maslin's flight brought some emergency issues. The woman sitting next to Kristin on the plane became distressed (possible heart attack?) and almost threw up on Kristin. Fortunately, that mess was avoided and a doctor sat with the woman the rest of the fight. EMS met the plane in Denver. Bogdans and Maslins caught a quick bite to eat in the airport having had a joyous reunion at Gate B29. During the second leg of the flight, another "emergency"...

Jun 11, 2013 - Photos from Jenny Lake

Day 7 in Jackson, and today it's adieu to the destination of our vacation. As a tribute--and because I may not have access to a decent internet connection for a few days--here are some of the photos I took of Jenny Lake last night. We're going to hit the road as soon as we pack the van. Tonight we will be in Billings, MO, and my first-ever time in Montana. Should be an interesting trip through Beartooth Pass this morning. More later!

Jun 10, 2013 - Getting ready to leave paradise...

Hello everyone! It's Monday, late afternoon, and we have been very lazy today, trying to adjust our sights for tomorrow morning's departure from Jackson. It has been a wonderful 6 days here, but reality is that we have to be back in PA on Saturday. This gives us 4 full days to drive about 2100 miles. Tomorrow is the lightest mileage of our trip--ending up in Billings, MO, for the night--because we are driving through Yellowstone yet one more time before leaving Wyoming. We will be heading up to the West Yellowstone entrance to the park,...
