RV by fire

I usually plan all our vacations using the internet and was skeptical that your planning would trump what I could do on my own. But I was wrong. The value of your insights, tips and advice far exceeded all of our expectations and made this trip very memorable.

NEWSLETTER  Fall 2013

Dear Dan,

Another year is winding down, and once again we have had the pleasure of working with lots of adventurous families who find ways to keep exploring in spite of the weak economy. Life is just too short to pass up seeing the National Parks! Yellowstone had over three million visitors for the third year in a row, despite an unusually late spring.  Snow was on the ground well into May, and a few of our clients caught Yellowstone still sporting her winter clothes!

Located on the southeastern edge of the park, the new acquisition includes a 1,000 year old buffalo jump - a cliff used by Native Americans to drive bison over the edge to their deaths - and a homestead dating back to 1882.

While most of the national parks are gearing down this time of year, Death Valley is gearing upDeath Valley for high season.  

 

Clients often inquire about taking an RV trip through Death Valley in the summer.  But average highs are 99 degrees by May, with temperatures averaging well over 100 through the end of September. Most RV companies do not allow travel through Death Valley in summer because of these extreme temperatures.
