"Official" Yellowstone G2G Thread / June 3-4

Saturday and Sunday, June 3-4.

INFORMATION AND LINKS

Official meeting place, and lodging for Saturday night:
West Yellowstone.
Friday and Sunday nights are optional and up to the participants.

Lodging Information:
West Yellowstone Lodging:
http://www.westyellowstonenet.com/lodging/lodging.php
We've stayed at several different motels there,
so we know what's good, and what's NOT so good.

West Yellowstone Attractions:
http://www.westyellowstonenet.com/at...ttractions.php

West Yellowstone Chamber of Commerce:
http://www.westyellowstonechamber.com

West Yellowstone Interactive Map:

Yellowstone Nat Park Information:
General Info / Main Page:
http://www.nps.gov/yell/planvisit/index.htm

Entrance Fees:
http://www.nps.gov/yell/pphtml/fees.html
(We always opt for the Annual National Parks Pass good for all the Nat Parks for a year,
since we usually get up to Glacier a few times as well)

Interactive Park Map:

===============================================

DISCUSSION AND IDEAS

1) Schedule.
Meet/greet on Saturday and get rooms.
(The IMAX has a great parking lot to use as a common meeting point.)
There's an Imax, Museum, and a Grizzly Bear and Wolf Discovery Center right in West Y.
if anyone wants to take in those attractions.
Do we want to take a quick trip into the park? (It's never "quick")
How about getting everyone together for dinner?
Sunday would be the mega fOCUS cruise through Yellowstone?

2) Arrival Routes.
It was discussed earlier that folks coming from the East and South could meet up in Sheridan, WY on Friday night.
Leave early Saturday and take the scenic route into the north entrance of Yellowstone, then converge with everyone else in West Y.
Discussion link...>>>Clicky

For the north and west folks, we're kind of wide open at this point.
We could meet/stay in Idaho Falls, ID on Friday night, then carravan up HWY 20 and into West Y.

3) What's everyone want to see in the Park?
We've been to most spots, so I could put together a nice route to get the most out of a day of cruising.


Let's get some ideas!
What's your thoughts?

=================================================

RANDOM THOUGHTS

My wife and I will most likely take Friday and Monday off, to make this into a mini-vacation.
That means we'd stay in West Y for both Saturday and Sunday nights,
and Friday in Idaho Falls if there's some WA, ID folks heading out.
Haven't made reservations yet, but more than likely, we'll get a room at the Kelly Inn or the Gray Wolf Inn and Suites in West Y.

NOTE
There is NO SPEEDING allowed in the Park!!
Sheriffs and Park Rangers are rather abundant.
Don't even think about exceeding the posted 45mph limit.
Thank you.

Where'd everyone go?
I'd like to get the motel reservations made.
Preferably somewhere that works for all involved so we can stay together.

I'll be going for sure, already got my time off put in with the boss.!!!!
idaho falls would be easier for me than sheriden time & distance wise. as far as hotel I'm pretty open.
about how much are the rooms at the grey wolf inn, couldn't get a room price from the link?
a couple of the others weren't to bad either.
I think dinner & drinks would be a good idea , nothing like a couple, (1.2..4..10..?) margareta's b4 heading back to the motel after a long drive !
Silly question , but does anyone know if there is a local cruise scene on the weekends there?

LOL!!! A cruise scene in West Yellowstone??
Surely you must be jesting??!!
I do believe that we will be the cruise scene.

Janet's checking the rates.
More than likely, we'll be staying at the Kelly Inn.
I believe goinloco1 already has a room there??

I've never been through the sheridon route b4, may start there, will have to wait to see how many of us are going to start from which point.
the kelly inn looks reasonable, i'm gonna get reservations in the next day or two. it would be cool to get most of the group in one place, i could just see a parking lot full of focus if we can get a good turn out, that would kick ass!

Kelly Inn is a great place.
Nice pool and hot tub, and rather substantial rooms for the price.
(nothing's cheap anymore in that town)

There's also good parking, and the Inn sits on the edge of town closer to the Park Entrance and visitor amenities/attractions.
All within walking distance.

If you haven't been on that Sheridan to Cooke City route, you're missing out!
We'll wait for the Northwest folks to chime in, before we decide which route we'll take into the park.

Cruise scene in West Yellowstone...I'm still laughing!!!
No disrespect intended....
