MY girlfriend and I are leaving in 13 days to go on a three week road trip! Passing through the Badlands and visiting Mt Rushmore and Devil's Tower. Then on through the Beartooth Highway to Yellowstone and the Tetons, camping for 11 days outside the West gate. Then visiting Craters of the Moon and some other sites in Idaho, then down to Arches and the Grand Canyon to meet up with my sister for a day. Then a long haul back to Chicagoland!

I think I remember that company, but they have since long gone under. Do you remember the name?

Luckily, I am not to concerned about the weather since I can just fly 1 or 2 hours to another island if it looks bad where I am, and if its bad everywhere, no big deal---I can just stay an extra 3 days or whatever.

My tenative plan is to just get up around 6:30, check the satellite imagery, and then fly to wherever it looks the sunniest.

Mid-late July is the very beginning of the 'Cane season, but climatology shows that activity doesnt appreciably pick up until after the 2nd week of August.

We did a lot of that last year. We were supposed to go to Yosemite but that was burning so we didn't go there. And when we got to Arches, it was flooding so we didn't go there but we went to Mesa Verdi instead. We were gone for 6 weeks. Oh well, our next trip out west we will hit those places.

This year we are planning to travel around New England.
