Spring trip

Postby Greg Barrick » Sun Feb 28, 2016 7:20 pm

The wife and I are planning our 2016 trip from the end of May till mid June. Planning a trip from N. Indiana, follow some of Rt. 66 through Ill, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas panhandle, up into Colorado, Across Wyoming into Yellowstone, across Montana ( to see kids & grand kids) down into Sturgis SD area and home. Should be a busy couple weeks. Hopefully an easy winter in Yellowstone.
Wife wants a couple dinner shows, havn't found a rodeo that early in season yet. Of course we'll stop at the Big Texan, Wall Drugs, Deadwood and the bad lands. Anybody know of any good ghost towns close to that route? Any "must see" stops?
I've ridden rt 66 and to Sturgis on my bike before. This is the first LONG trip with the wife and tear drop. Just want to try and get as much in as we can in 17 days.
Thanx

its snowing up there its 60 degreas down here at pavillon and bone dry howling wind but the moutains above dubois and up by Jackson and Yellowstone is not a lot of snow though the winter out here in Wyoming has been way mild we have never seen below zero this winter. and the snow is below normal out here in Wyoming. I wouldn't worry about jellystone having bad winter this year.

Thanks jss06, was kinda thinking of that, weather permitting. Pretty steep and twisty if there's snow and ice.
By the way, I love your build! Super nice camper.
