We make reservations just about every step of the way. We did that trip, from Austin, TX to Yellowstone.
Reservations are a must at destination type sites. Yellowstone for sure, call early. We are not full timers, My wife and I are both teachers, so weekends and summers are our high use times. Summers can be crowded, and I'm pretty picky when it comes to where we stay. When our kids are out of college and on their own and we retire, I may ease up a little, but we always seem to have some deadlines. to meet.
