Jim, Thanks for the ideas!  I hadn't done any work for the trip back from Glacier National Park and you made it easy.  I was looking forward to a nice drive east.  I'll take your advice and head to Spearfish.  Really need to see Wall Drugs huh?  OK, I'll give it a shot.  Maybe I'll stop at the ranch and harass you.  At least we can do a meal together.

Beartooth Rd looks incredible.  I'm going to head out of the Roosevelt cabins to Red Lodge, loop to Cody the head back to the cabin during the week I'm there.  Be a great time to resupply.

I would agree with previous posters.  The Going-to-the-Sun road in Glacier and the Chief Joseph Memorial Highway through the Beartooth Mountains are fantastic drives.  The northern loop around Yellowstone is also awesome.  Attached a couple pics for motivation - both taken from just outside the vehicle - no hiking.  I'm ready to go back now, too.  Best of luck to you.

Oh yeah, THAT'S what I need as I sit here looking out a balmy 15 degree day. Big smile

Great shots.  I'm going to try and fix a couple of mounts to the car, probably attached near or at where the sun visor attaches so I can take stills and video.  It'll give me something else to do before the trip.

I don't know what Chief Joesph Highway is like but I know the Beartooth Pass is more fun going east to west.  If you don't want to repeat any road on that loop head south from the cabin and head out the East Entrance of the Park to Cody, then north to Red Lodge, up and over the Beartooth, through Cooke City, MT and back into the Park through the Northeast Entrance.  That's about a 6 hour loop provided you don't get stuck behind an RV from New York.  LOL
 
The Black Hills Corvette Classic (http://www.blackhillscorvetteclassic.com/) is happening July 15th–July 19th so you may bump into a bunch of folks in Spearfish on that weekend.  If your timing has you in the neighborhood then plan ahead for a motel room as they will be hard to find in the area.  The event kicks off in Sioux Falls on the east side of the state on Tuesday night and they caravan across the state to Spearfish on Thursday (I've heard that is more of a sprint than a caravan!).

OK I have a little more of the trip figured out.  I only have up to Highway to the Sun on the calender.  If I keep the tentative schedule after that I'll just miss the Blackhills Corvette Classic.  That will just give me another reason to head out there again.

here's what the trip looks like today

After I harass Jim In MN (don't worry Jim, I'll give you plenty of time to hide before I get there) I've got an open calender.  I was thinking of heading to the NCM since I'm probably not going to make Carlisle and the caravan but I know my daughter would be crushed.  I'll just push it to make them both.
