Thanks so much for sharing your experiences, advises and questions on this forum. Very helpful.
Even though I am in my mid 30's and been living in US for 8 years, this Spring will be my first trip to any place beyond 300 mile radius. My vacation dates are from May 30 to June 6.
Here is my background. I live in Chesterfield, Missouri about 45 minutes from Saint Louis. I am in rudimentary stage of planning Yellowstone trip. I have 1 week in hand to spare for my vacation and we are a couple in our mid 30's. Keeping this info in mind, I have few questions for you...
1. Is it better budget-wise to do a road trip or fly into one of the closest airports to YNP?
2. How much will a 5-day accomodation cost us? All we need is a cot (with no bed bugs!) and restroom with running water.
3. Will there be any additional costs besides accomodation, rental car (gas) and/or air tickets?
4. As you can see all my questions were about cost. I am looking at around $1000 for this trip. Am I close enough?
Where can I save money?
Thanks for all your pointers and suggestions.
