return route?

Hi Ingrid,

What route are you taking back? When I went out for mine in April I came back on I90 for variety - it's not that much longer if you find a sensible route back down (it runs across further north). Maybe an extra day. But the scenery is different and really interesting - it takes you through the Plains, by the Badlands and into the Black Hills, which are really pretty. At that point you can angle back down through Wyoming to pickup I80, or go on to beautiful Montana and eventually come down through Idaho.

Then again, you may want to get it back as quickly as possible and return on I80...but...ugh...both ways?...

swimming in the Snowies


Yeah, your head really swims up there! I would wake up in the morning and be too tired to roll off my air mattress! But in a couple of days you feel better and can breathe again.

After spending some time there we went down to Zion and took a ranger hike. That canyon is at about 8000 ft and everybody else was staggering around and gasping for air but we were like gazelles!

ooooooh, the Snowies!

Right now, I80 both ways sounds like the best because it's direct, but I'm betting while we're in Wisconsin I can change my husband's mind and try a new route.

I'm posting while on the road, so you'll all be the lucky recipients of my rants and raves through the trip. I'm putting up a website, I'll announce it....

Thanks for the info. Yeah I'd have to find some leftover Vicodin for the trip back on 80, it worked great on a 14 hour flight to Hong Kong once. It was over in 20 minutes, and I barely remember sobbing at the in-flight cartoon!
