We are planning our first muli-week trip in the Airstream. My wife, myself, two kids (9 & 11) and our dog.
The basics are in place: a loop around the northwest United States. Specifically starting and ending in the Seattle area. The general idea is to pass through Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, back across southern Idaho, across Oregon and up the coast back to Seattle.
Some things are in stone (Yellowstone dates and Fort Stevens, OR dates)... but other stretches are flexible. Here's the general idea:
Leave Thursday 6/20 TBD? (make time getting to Montana and hit a rest stop the night of 6/20?)
6/21: Lewis & Clark Caverns Virginia City TBD?
6/22-23: Yellowstone (Bridge Bay)
6/24-26: Wyoming (Bufalo Bill)*
6/27-28: Thermopolis (Eagle RV)*
6/29-30: Tetons TBD?
7/1: Idaho/Oregon TBD?
7/2: Idaho/Oregon TBD?
7/3: Oregon TBD?
7/4-6: Fort Stevens
TBD?='to be determined'. All listed dates are the 'night of'. So basically, were wondering about an easy sleepover the first night into Montana... Buffalo Bill and Thermopolis are optional (but we're leaning towards those places)... then the the nights of the 29th through the 3rd (spanning Wyoming, Idaho and Oregon).
Any recommendations on routes to take or not, places to stay or avoid, things to do or pass on while traveling with the family would all be appreciated.
