A typical day in our life "on the road" full-timing: We left Cody, WY this morning for a day trip to Yellowstone Nat'l Park. We headed up Chief Joseph Highway to the seldom used Northeast Gate (Silver Gate) just past the town of Cooke City, MT. The ride started out fairly uneventful for the first few miles and then we started seeing lots of antelope and small groups of mule deer. If fact we had to stop for about 6 mule deer just off the road. By the time we had entered Yellowstone we had spotted over a hundred mule deer, numerous antelope and about 18 ELK. After entering the Park we headed for Lamar Valley. Once in the valley we immediately began to see herds of buffalo, antelope and elk and saw 3 coyotes, 2 wolves, and a small (cinnamon brown) black bear. We proceeded to tour the whole park and were amazed that the huge 1 million acre fire that blackened and devastated the Park in 1988 was almost entirely covered over with new pines that are approximately 25 feet tall now. The Park is still mostly covered in a blanket of snow. Throughout the Park we continued to see large numbers of buffalos and elk and had the good fortune to see 8 trumpeter swans. We left the Park through the East Gate and headed back to Cody, WY. On the way down the mountain we again saw over 100 mule deer and 23 Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep to include 2 large BIG HORN RAMS that somehow reminded me of my RAM 2500 Dodge. The trip covered 311 miles at an average speed of 47 miles/hour. The Ram 2500 Dodge CTD averaged 24.4 miles/gal computer and 23.1 miles/gal hand calculated. Total cost of fuel was: 13.4gallons of diesel at $4.40/gal for a total of $59. Great day full-timing.
