Hmmmm.......sounds like a good place for a rally, or non-rally, gathering of Airstreamers.

Ray Eklund has a gathering in Dubois, WY, tentatively on the books for August of next year.....July is right before August, September just after, and some of us might be in the area early or stay late.

Sorry for this small hijack, Brian.

No Hijack taken. This is a thread about Airstreams out doing what they were made to do.

Lucy is still camped near Bondurant, Wyoming. It was raining here this morning, so we slept in. We had a leisurely morning and watched the rain through Lucy's windows. We did some housekeeping chores in Lucy. When the rain let up, we also did some clean-up in Ethel.

It sure was nice to take a break from this incessant vacationing. We did got out and do some exploring late this afternoon on some of the back roads near the campground.

We got back to Lucy around 7:30, and settled in for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- Looking at the rain out Lucy's windows.
- Lucy coming into view at the campground.
- Old wooden bridge across the Green River.
- Fred and Ethel on the back road.
- Cart path down to the river bank.
- we were held up for inspection.
- This guy wanted a really close look.
- Old camper along the back road with current tag.
- Site of the 1832 US Army Fort Bonneville.
- Falling down old house. It is sad to see this. It was someone's dream home a very long time ago. It stands as a reminder of another time and a different kind of life.

Lucy is still camped near Bondurant, Wyoming. It was a beautiful day. All of the rain has moved out of the area. We spent the day exploring some of the back roads near Bondurant. We got to see some interesting countryside along the way.

We came back to Lucy early so that we could start breaking camp tonight. We are hoping to have an early getaway tomorrow. We want to be up to Jackson by 10:00 AM to have the best shot at getting a campsite at the Gros Ventre National Park Campground, which is first come, first served. Lucy is hoping to get lucky.

We got as much packed up as we could. We are now hunkered in for another night in the Wyoming wilderness.

Today's pictures include:

- Scenery in the wilderness
- The last remains of a homestead of long ago.
- Road to nowhere.
- Small ranch in the valley.
- A really big hay stack. I wouldn't want to try to find a needle in this one.
- First cyclist that we have seeen this far out on a dirt road.
- The road narrowed as the trees thickened.
- Winding stream through the forest.
- The traffic gets heavy at some points.

That Moose is incognito to avoid hunters.

Lucy broke camp in Bondurant, Wyoming early this morning. We were actually out and rolling at 7:15 AM! That was very unlike us, but we wanted to get to Jackson early to get a campsite with electric service at the Gros Ventre Campground in Grand Teton National Park. We arrived at the campground at 8:30, and were fortunate to get the campsite that we wanted.

We got Lucy all set up, and headed out in search of Mooses. We were able to spot and photograph a Moose Cow and her Calf sitting in the marshy grass along the Moose - Wilson Road.

We stayed out Moosing until almost dark before heading back to Lucy for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- Scenery along the road to Jackson.
- Entering Jackson, Wyoming.
- Fred and the Girls at their campsite in Grand Teton National Park.
- The Tetons with snow capped Grand Teton in the center.
- Beaver in the Gros Ventre River.
- Moose Cow in the grass.
- Her Calf shows himself.
- Blue Heron guarding large Beaver residence.
- 1900 Bill Menor Store along the Snake River in Moose, Wyoming.
- The River Ferry run by Bill Menor.

I certainly hope the all the moose you find get tags. Moose tags. I suppose the moose tags have the moose's names on them.

How many Moose names can we think of? Loose Moose, Brownie, Bullwinkle, Snowy, Ralph,

David

PS Great photos

Lucy is still camped in the National Park. We got out early this morning and drove through most of Grand Teton National Park. At the north end of the Park, we visited another campground. We made a reservation for Lucy for Friday and Saturday.

In the campground at Colter Bay was a 1936 Airstream or Bowlus Travel Trailer. I guess it could have been some other make that I am not Familiar with. It was set up a a campsite and in use. There was no one there to talk to. I hope it is still there when Lucy gets up there on Friday

We drove back to Jackson and had lunch at the Cowboy Bar which is a local landmark. We walked around Downtown Jackson for a while.

We came back to Lucy early and watched the sun go down at the campground.

Today's pictures include:

- Jenny Lake
- Tetons from Inner Park Road.
- Jackson Lake
- Five shots of the 1936 Trailer
- Cowboy Bar in Jackson
- Antler Arch in Jackson City Park

The trailer looks to me like an early Airstream that has been widened, and then an air intake installed on the back, Air Conditioner maybe?

That old aluminum trailer reminds me of Donald Trump's hair do.

Very interesting sighting.
