All of the sights were wonderful. Thanks for all the tips. We did wind up taking the 16 rather than the 14 and skipped Sheridan. Thus took us through a ron of construction traffic through the Big Horns so I don't think we gained anything.
My first time driving an RV, we would up with a shorty 22 footer after trading away the 31' they had assigned to us. The switch was based on prebooking campsites for a 25' RV. After driving the 22' through all the twisty, winding hills all over S. Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho, Arizona, and so on, I'm quite glad we switched. For a rookie, there were quite a few pissed off drivers behind my slow a@$ through a lot of ot, but we made it unscathed and saw some wonderful sights.
Cody Wyoming was a blast, we all agreed we would skip Deadwood if w went again, Mt Rushmore, the Black Hills and the Badlands were all great. Yellowstone was packed as I'm sure it always is. We saw a ton of Bison and Elk but we're all disappointed that we saw no moose, and no adult bears. The Teton were beautiful and the view from atop Signal Mountain was incredible, if a little tough to get to. We checked out Bryce Canyon which was also incredible, bring on the HooDoos. We took a drive through Zion, but missed the shuttle parking lot and then we were out of the park: poor signage did not help, but what we saw was gorgeous.
Our last night in the RV was a lake view/front spot on Lake Mead. The view was incredible but it is July, so it was hotter than any of us would have liked. We woke up and went to the Hoover Dam. We first checked out the Pat Tillman/ Mike O'Callahan (?) Memorial bridge across the river. We walked across the Colorado river! From the Memorial bridge, we decided we had a great view of the Dam, the damn traffic, and the damn tourists, and decided to pack it in and not fight the crowd and headed off the Vegas!
Our trip was through Apollo and Star RV rentals. They replace their entire fleet with new vehicles every year and always need new vehicles relocated from place to place. We paid $1 per day for the RV for 2500 miles and 12 nights. Generator use, liability insurance, gasoline, and all matter of assorted fees were extra, ut I think in all, we spent less than $1500 for the RV itself, and another $1000 for gas
Over the 2824 miles we drove in it. All in all, it was a 700 mile drive to pick up the RV in Forest City, Iowa then 2824 miles I the rv, totalling over 3500 miles driven in 15 days, can anyone drive me to work tomorrow?
