We left Tues morning 6am.. drove 13 hours, stayed over night in Shelbyville,Kentucky.. then up early and on the road again Wed..stayed at Victoria Acres in Nebraska that night another 13 hour day.. Thurs..we made it to a KOA in Wyoming that was a 10+ hour day...left headed here to Yellowstone West KOA..which took another 10+ hours arriving at 8:30pm their time..ugh.. later than we wanted..but hey.. we made it, safely..lots of sites to see along the way but we are going to do more of that when we leave here. The HTT is doing great, we have the pugs on, and reflectex in the windows...so far it has been really warm during the day, but gets down in the 30's at night...but we are staying toastie warm..
We have seen a ton of buffalo, all in the road and on the side of the road, along with elk.. also saw Old Faithful erupt this afternoon... was beautiful..

Isn't the West Yellowstone KOA a great campground. We spent 2 weeks there this past July and had a great time hiking and seeing sites in YS. Also, can't beat the WYS KOA for location to the park and WY village. Enjoy your trip and be careful out there!

We have enjoyed the park very much, super nice people, we have a great site with concrete patio, an updated picnic table, swing and a firewood ring with grid..it's awesome..

OMG.. don't even ask about fuel.. I knew it would be the biggest cost, but I was still in a bit of shock.. LOL
