I took my wife to Yellowstone on our honymoon in Sept. 81'!!! I had a nice 80' ford van I did the hippy thing inside and drove across country drinking champene. Got there a day early and didn't evan relize it when the lady at Old Fathful Inn said we didn't have a reservation for you tonight! It was for the next night!!! We drove so fast we got there in two days when we had planned for three> Yikes!!
Luckily the Lady felt sorry for us being newly weds and all and got us a room or it would have been sleeping in the van in 20 degree snowy weather!
So, we stayed there for a week befor continuing our journy to Idaho, Colorado to see my brother, then over to Wisc. to visit friends then up through Mich. to Canada and across to Montr. and down through N. England through the fall foliage! It took three weeks! We fished the whole way!!! What a great honymoon, sure beat the Bahama cruise my wife wanted to do!!
My favorite thing to do in Yellowstone was to pull off the road next to one of the most famous trout streams in the country> The Firehole, The Madison, The Gibbon or of course The Yellowstone! Park and ask my wife to start some bacon on the Coleman grill, I'll be right back!!! Walking through the snow left overnight I'd hit the stream w/ my flyrod and before the bacon was cooked I'd be back w/ some cleaned trout (still flappin w/o their guts!) and throw them in the bacon fat!!! Talk about
breakfast of champions or the afrodesiac special???
Anyway, Anyone up for some flyfishing lession on the Firehole w/ an elk standing across the river from you and a geiser going off less than 50' away pouring boiling water into the river on our trip to Yellowstone???? I'm just sayin!!!
When I was young & stupid I broke almost every bone in my body and I'm paying a heavy price now but I'm still here and so glad to see my two sons grow up to be fine young men, both are in the Navy. I'm so proud! My biggest health problem>> I'm a certified Luny~Tune!!
