Looking forward to the high fuel costs next week when I leave for the Sawtooth NF, and then over to Shoshone NF outside Cody.

The damage was not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

It was a great trip, the GD had fun so it was worth it to me.

Anytime I can get up into Idaho/Wyoming camping makes it worthwhile. Love those big trees.

Just finished a round trip from Charlotte, NC to Nashville, TN we averaged 12mpg, hand calculated, through the mountains, I'll take it! Heading to VA beach in 2 weeks, hopefully we can do the same maybe better.

When we can a short trip up 95 to the Cascade/McCall area gets us out of the desert into the trees.

Calm, quiet and a touch cooler during the day.
