    I just checked out the monthly rates in towns in Wyoming close by Yellowstone Park. Cody, WY is $650/month and Dubois, WY is $950/month. Help!!! 2 or 3 years ago that would have been $450 and $650.

    The cost of RVing is going sky high. It's going to take close to $1000 in diesel and another $450 in RV Park fees just to get there from Ohio and then another $650 to $950 to stay there. Oh well this is what we do for fun in our old age. :laugh:

    Thats what you run into in heavy tourist areas. Try the idaho and Montana areas and see what you can find. Might find some cheaper rates.

    Thanks. I Will be going towards West Yellowstone eventually. I'm going that way to Polson, MT. My brother-in-law lives up there. Livingstone is a nice area too.

    I'm traveling up on I-80 to avoid the Texas/Oklahoma tornado alley. Well here I sit in Central Nebraska in a tornado watch/severe thunderstorm warning. The thunderstorms could produce large hail. Seems like I've heard that recently. :eek:

    Seems that dag burned Nebraska will do that to ya. LOL Back a few years ago we headed to Michigan for easter break. Beautiful weather in Utah and Colorado, hit the Nebraska border and it was blizzard all the way to Iowa. Had to spend the night in Lincoln and likes to froze to death in our tent trailer. Water lines and tank were frozen next morning, couldnt even fix and dang cup of coffee.

    Its ok DL....spring will be here soon for you I know. Should have come thru OK and or Texas to miss the hail and tornados and the snow and the cold. Who does your trip routing? Just kidding, hope your feeling better and weather can permit you to get on the roof. Safe travels.

    I guess that means that you did not use TC trip planning services :question: :question:

    You are going to have to get up on the roof to either fix the vent cover or to put another layer of duct tape on it to insulate against the cold. Shiver Shiver

    BE safe doing it though

    Hey Darlin :cool: They wear lots of Carharts out here in Nebraska. The good ol boys know how to stay warm when they work outdoors. They are a little on the heavy side for me. :laugh: Or maybe it's I don't like to work outdoors anymore. ;) Getting too sedentary in my older life.

    I went & googled carharts. Wow as thick as they look you probably feel like as round as a bear.

    I think I will just stay right here in Fla for a while longer while the rest of the north warms up.
