I have been reading posts, and want to thank all of you for your great advice and support you provide to fellow road trippers.
As I plan my trip I have some questions I have not seen addressed to date.
Leaving South Florida on Memorial Day weekend for Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks ( in that order because that is the way the reservations were available for camping in my Motorhome in the Parks) I want to know what might be the best route to avoid tornadoes that time of year. My last two trips out West (the Utah loop and the dinosaur/black hills route) we were worried about tornadoes--having narrowly missed them in Kansas and Missouri, and also one day out from them in South Dakota--what do you recommend as the best route for us to take to Yellowstone to reduce tornado probability?
Also. we do not have a tow vehicle, so we would like to rent a car to best explore Yellowstone on our terms, any suggestions as to the best way to do this, seeing as we are arriving from the South and East? It will be my husband and myself, plus our three preteen grands, are we better off with the offered tours from Fishing Bridge, or hiring a private guide to give a real experience for the kids for one of our 6 days in the Park.? We plan on also hiking and exploring on our own once we get our bearings..
