Honeymoon!

We made an itinerary for the honeymoon! Here's where we're going
Portland to Yellowstone Nat'l Park - 2 nights camping
Yellowstone to Denver - a few hours (sleeping in the car probably)
Denver to Santa Fe - 1 night in a hotel
Santa Fe to Grand Canyon - 1 night camping (so we can see the sunrise)
Grand Canyon to Vegas - a few hours (just to see what it's like)
Vegas to Death Valley - in the middle of the night! Pretty!
Death Valley to Yosemite - 1 night in ultra-expensive lodging (the nice lodge is almost $400/night! Eek!)
Yosemite to Portland (our longest leg)

It sounds like we'll be in the car the whole way, but we made it so we're not. :)

how long over all do you expect to be gone?
Would you like any recommendations for Santa Fe/New Mexico?

Re:
Yes, yes. Very complicated. Very precise. :)

wow, you two are more ambitious than i'd ever be. there's nothing i hate more than having to pack up the camping gear! so are you driving from santa fe to yosemite via las vegas without staying the night anywhere? all in all, you're going to see some beautiful territory.

Re:
I've never camped for more than one night somewhere, so it's going to be fun!

And no, we're going to the Grand Canyon and staying the night there, and taking a few hours in the morning I think, and then driving to Yosemite through Death Valley and Vegas. (Neither of us care much about staying in Vegas very long since we don't like casinos, but it'll be fun to at least look at!)

Re:
oh, you are going to love it then! that's the best thing about camping, staying enough days to justify the packing/unpacking of the tent! the longest i've been straight camping was 9 days- it was awesome! you get to slow down, take everything in, set your schedule to the sun and moon- oh, i want to go camping now!

Re:
I'd love to do that someday! Camping for one night doesn't really seem that worth it. :)

Don't forget to spend a little time in the Tetons (just south of Yellowstone). Jackson is a great town and the scenery is breath-taking. I saw just as many animals there as I did in Yellowstone.

Re:
Thanks for the info! I'll definitely be coming to you sometime between now and then to get the "insider info!" :)

I'll let the dog lay on me.

Re:
You should take care of the dog while we're gone. Too bad you can't do that, that'd be cool.

Re:
Whee! Do you want to meet somewhere before Saturday, or shall we just figure things out then?

Either works for me.

Re:
Well, let's go for Saturday, since Cory's just stopped smoking and he will probably need some extra attention for the next few days. :)

Also, I couldn't find the shoe on the website - have you stopped selling it, or am I blind?
