I originally planned to spend a week or so driving and sight seeing from Ohio to Wyoming. However, I was enjoying time with my friends and family in Ohio and decided to drive straight through.
I left Ohio on Thursday at 2pm and stopped in Iowa and spent the night at the worlds largest truck stop in the parking lot. I drove to Kearney, NE on Friday and stayed in a Holiday Inn parking lot. On to Rock Springs, WY on Saturday in celebration of my birthday. I stayed in a Flying J lot that night. I drove the last three hours on Sunday, arriving in Teton Village, WY by 11am Sunday.
So leaving 2pm the first day and arriving before 11am the last day makes it 3 days of driving Thursday to Sunday.
I spent my first few nights in Wyoming at The Hostel in Teton Village because I started my new job Monday, the day after arriving, and I wanted to shower for work. I stayed there Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. I showered at the rec center and spent the night in a parking lot in Jackson on Thursday and on Friday I finally was able to move into my new home camp site in Moran, WY, where I'll be living for probably 4 months, and then looking for another place to live the last two months of my contract (September and October) because my campground shuts down in the beginning of September.
We'll worry about that closer to August.
