    I'd be glad to give you more info, answer what questions you may have. Feel free to PM or email me ( I plan on doing a write up on the trip showing the route and destinations with some favorite photos to send out to some friends. I'll include you on that list when I get around to finishing it.
    A few things to consider - give yourself as much time as possible. There's so much to see that you will want to stop and take some it in rather than blow thru it all. Not sure if you've been out west before, but there's a wide varity of geography/landscape that is somewhat foreign to what we have in the east.
    What time of the year do you plan on this? Some of the roads in higher elevations are only open June-October. The road going thru Glacier NP (MT) was closed about 15 miles in on each side. So we basically missed out on the most scenic part unfortunately. Beartooth Pass/Rt 212 (MT) and Rocky Mt NP (CO) were both closed the last week of June when I was out there in 2003. You will probably see more traffic in July or early August, but little chance of roads being closed. Of course days get shorter towards the end of summer. Just some things to consider.
    Glad to hear of somone else getting ready to take on a similiar adventure that we just finished. You won't regret doing it.
