Our 2015 vacation trip

Cauffield

1299 views

June 26, 2015 we departed our Florida Home and set out to engage our out west tour. We had to leave home without our little dog (Maggie) she went on to a better life in doggie heaven. Our first stop was
St. Louis, Paducha, Ky, on to Mitchell, SD, the Bad Lands, Custers State Park, Mount Rushmore, Win Cave, Hot Springs, Cody Wyoming ( Yellowstone NP) The Grand Tetons, on to Salt Lake City stopping at the Bonneville Salt Raceway, The Mormon Tabneracle, on to California, visiting Napa Valley and San Francisco, traveling to Bakersfield,Ca., and crossing the Desert to Williams,Az. We toured the Grand Canyon, the Route 66 town of Williams and traveling south on 89A to Sedona. Departing and traveling to Okalahoma City, then to Memphis, Tn. ending up in Knoxville at our friends house. We usually spent 2-4 days at each location traveling in the Jeep.
Our 2001 Monaco Diplomat worked very well towing our Jeep Grand Cherokee. It was a bit sluggish when the OD temp was above 100 degrees.
Since this was our first trip out west we were very glad that we purchased our Senior NP pass. The only problem we encountered was school was not in session so most all the parks were filled. We camped at
KOA campgrounds.
It was very important to us that we stop at each states visitor center and get a map of the state and information of that particular states attractions.
We arrived home in Florida the first of September. The longest vacation my wife and I have had together.
We did trade motorhomes at Buddy Greggs in Knoxville for a Gulf Stream Tour Master 45T.

Sorry about your dog.  I'm planning a trip west to Napa and Sonoma Valley, San Francisco, Monterey then to see the redwoods.

Any suggestions on RV parks in any of these areas?
