First things first. We headed out at 9 to capture a glimpse of Old Faithful. She did not disappoint! While there we paid a visit to the RV auto station to have air put in the Eagle's tires. Because of something funky with her valves the tires had to be removed to do so. The upside is it took less than the predicted hour and we are pretty sure the mechanic is Johanna's ...
... I-86, but about three to five miles to the north, so it was quiet and peaceful except for the sound of the wind, and tires on the road.

temperature hovering around ninety degrees! Still it felt good! If

river ride must be labeled “ LAZY RIVER”.
We spent the night just off
Main Street, camped with all utilities including cable! All-in-all, a stop
we will remember. Sorry that ...
