A few days in Yellowstone

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 22:20:57 GMT

Hi! We are two active 30-something year olds heading to western US in late August/early September. We will fly into Seattle, spend a few days there and fly-drive from there to roadtrip/hike around Yellowstone for a few days. I want to see all the main sites of course, which it seems are easy to navigate on your own. But I'd also like to get a private guide for one or two day hikes in the back country, away from ...

When I applied for an electronic travel authorisation on [snip] I assumed that [it} was a government site and would charge correctly. But instead of $7 (the correct fee) I was charged $100, and after I queried it was told: The reason the price difference is that you applied through us who are a third party travel and visa agency that incurs extra costs I neither wanted nor needed the services of an agency.The fee was not ...

Hi all We're planning a road trip to Washington (State) in July and I'd be interested in your views about the timing. Are we likely to encounter more crowds if we go immediately after July 4th rather than a bit later in the month, or is it just going to get busier if we leave it till the second half of the month? I do already know we should avoid Mount Rainier NP at weekends so we'll factor that into our ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Jan 16, 07:18]

Hi guys, This is an update to the (Can a foreigner buy a car in the USA) Renting I actually thought about renting, as karazyal told me.
