That looks like Morning Glory pool. Keep up the trip pictures and text. I am enjoying the ride!

More Yellowstone.

Hi, in the picture on the left, we were at Old Faithful area and as we were looking at this really neat looking thermal pool, a gust of wind blew my Airstream hat off. My hat went into an off limits territory. [shown in picture] As we past other on lookers, we let them know that they better hold on to their hats because I lost mine at the thermal we were just walking away from. One brave sole, found a long stick and went into forbidden territory and got my Airstream hat back for me. In the picture on the right, there were some Bison taking a stroll down the highway; This made me feel at home because it was just like L.A. area freeways. [same problem, different animal]

More Bison.

Hi, These pictures were taken just before these Bison decided to cross the street behind my Lincoln; [we moved for them] They were right next to Lee's door and looked like they were going to cross here with or without my tow vehicle being moved. Tomorrow we mare heading through Idaho and may stop at Cour De Arlene as we plan to stop in Washington. I will try to update our random trip as we go as long as I can get Wifi at the campgrounds.

Hi Bob, great pictures. Thanks for including us in your trip. I've enjoyed following along tonight during my late night visit to the forums.

I guess you have the photo resizing thing under control, but if you are just cropping the photo to get the size down there is another way to shrink the total size of the photo and maintain the total extent of the photo if you have MS Office on your laptop:

1-Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the file (photo) you want to resize;
2-Right click on the photo and select "Open with" from the pop-up menu;
3-Select Microsoft Office Picture Manager from the fly-out menu;
4-in Picture Manager, select "Edit Picture" and from the menu bar to the right that appears on the right side, select resize under the bottom category (Change picture size);
5-I always open the pull-down menu under "Predefined width x height:" and select "Web - Large (640 X 480 px)" and then under the file menu on the top tool bar, I do Save As and save as a .jpeg format.

Then just save to your post. I can save multiple photos to a post in one "manage attachment" session this way.

Day ten.

Hi, today we drove from Missoula, Montana [didn't get to meet /thecatsandi/ Michelle] to Couer d' Alene. I think I spelled it right this time. Lee remembered a Japanese restaurant that we ate at three years ago, but at that time our trailer was in a campground, so parking downtown was easier. Gas has began to rise, we had to pay $2.85 per gallon for premium today. We didn't make it to Seatle, Wa. yet, so we stopped at Ellensberg, along the Yakima river. Actually the river is about fourty feet from our trailer. On one nighters like this we pull into the campsite, hook-up the water hose, and 30 amp. service. This makes for a quicker get-away in the morning. There has been some talk about tire pressures and traveling and this is what I do. I set the tire pressure on my trailer at 65 lbs cold and on my Lincoln, I set the front at 35 lbs and the rear at 40 lbs. At every rest stop, camp ground, or gas station I do a visual check for any type of tire damage and kick all of the trailer tires and if all looks good, we go. I feel that using a tire gauge at all of these stops just puts more wear and tear on the tire valve and gives a better chance for dirt to get in and allow your valve to leak causing your own problem. So far , so good.

Pictures.

Hi, the first two pictures are at Jim and Mary's RV park in Missoula, Montana. Highly recommended. The two bottom pictures are where I parked in Couer D' Alene for the Japanese restaurant. Note: in the last picture [click to enlarge] I had to move back a few feet from where I originally parked because my trailer was in a 2 hour zone and my tow vehicle was in an only 15 minute zone.

Day eleven.

Hi, this morning we left Ellenburg KOA; It is an alright place for a KOA. We have found that the KOA book is convenient to use and we have found or stayed at some really nice KOAs, but for my dollar, I like the Good Sam and family owned parks better. We drove through Seattle, Wa. to another really nice campground near Tacoma, Wa. We are at "Gig Harbor RV Resort" and the price isn't too bad. [$34.00] We are staying here for three nights. Due to the holiday weekend, we were the last ones to get a space without reservations.

Airplanes / Aluminum.

Hi, after setting up camp, we drove into Seattle to "The Museum of Flight". This is at an airport, Boeing factory, and Museum. Well worth visiting. We had lunch in their Cafe' and toured all of the buildings and displays. You can take a flight in a vintage bomber or an antique bi-plane. We passed, but looked like fun.

We are impressed with your pictures! The technical learning curve for posting pics works against our doing the same. Will have to bite the bullet and get it figured out!

I'm enjoying your random trip! Thanks for keeping us updated. We don't get enough vacation time from work, but at least I can live vicariously through your trip!
