  1. Thanks for bumping this thread - I just finished a trip from Atlanta->Black Hills/Rapid City->Yellowstone->Grand Teton, and it was amazing as well. Anyone who thinks we need less national parks/protected public lands hasn't spent any time in them. This was an epic 3 week trip in our household - we left Atlanta on a Friday afternoon and drove the 8 hours to St. Louis. Overnighted there and it was another 12 up to Interior, South Dakota (one of the Badlands NP gateway towns). Got in late Saturday night but were at the Badlands first thing Sunday. Spent Sunday at the Badlands/Wall/Minuteman missile site, then headed over to Rapid City which was our home base for 5 nights. From Rapid City we did Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Needles Hwy, Spearfish Canyon, and Deadwood. Leaving Rapid City we tried to get into Devil's Tower (line was too long to get in) and then headed over the Bighorns to Cody. A couple nights in Cody for the Buffalo Bill Museum and the Cody rodeo. After leaving Cody, we drove up the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway and Beartooth Hwy to Big TImber, where we were at a dude ranch for a week (this was the wife's 40th birthday present). Leaving the dude ranch a week later, we camped a couple nights in Yellowstone (Mammoth and Slough Creek campgrounds), spent 2 nights in West Yellowstone, then headed down to Grand Teton. Hit all the highlights in Yellowstone - Grand Prismatic via Fairy Falls, Old Faithful, Lamar Valley, Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, etc, but our favorite park of the trip was Grand Teton. Mormon Row was awesome, and the hike around Jenny Lake was pretty fantastic. Then there was the 24 hour drive home Strongest recommendation of the trip - the Gypsy app. If you've not heard of it, it's an app for your phone that utilizes your GPS (no data connection required) and is essentially like an in-car tour guide. There is one available for the Black Hills, and a separate one available for Yellowstone/GTNP. This is the best $10 you'll spend on your trip. It tells you stories, gives you facts about landmarks you're about to see/have seen, and recommends hikes and other points of interest. Highly recommend.
  2. I have a friend who is a travel agent in Israel/Jordan. Send me a PM if you would like me to connect you.
  3. I'm going to be headed to St. George also, pending COVID. If the race is on and flying is OK, I'll be there racing (it's a bit of a drive from Atlanta). We should grab a beer before the race.
  4. I live in Georgia. This is exactly how I voted.
  5. Why would he suddenly now get work? Bell's been out since week 1. If they were going to play him wouldn't they have done it by now?
  6. I 100% agree on DeSoto. I've done 14 fulls and every one has been in the Rivieras. I wouldn't race anything past an hour on the bike without them. You want to spend your $$ on your bike touch points - shoes/socks and shorts/tri suits. Comfort on a long day is priceless.
  7. I'd agree with JAA - starting to work up to an IM is at least a 2 year enterprise. I'd probably even lean towards 3 depending on your background. I'd have an A race be an Olympic first year, half IM second, and full the 3rd. A full is going to be way, way more than twice as hard as your half.
  8. YMMV but I like to drill holes in the soles of my running shoes to let them drain. Between the treads of course - makes no difference in how the shoes feel but I find it makes an appreciable difference in how much they squish with sweat.
  9. My 5 year old made it to the top of Scout's Lookout before the chains.
  10. Your 2nd day at the GC I would take either Kaibab or Bright Angel down into the Canyon a mile or two. A little effort will get you away from 90% of the crowds. 2nd day at Zion I'd do Angel's Landing. Also if you have some time I'd head over to the Kolob Canyons area of the park. It's virtually deserted and Kolob Canyons viewpoint is great. At Arches Delicate is a 2-3 hour hike, so about half a day. It is very exposed so if it's a hot day bring plenty of water. The Double Arch area has 2-3 easy hikes from basically the same parking lot, it's a nice easy way to see a good number of Arches.
  11. Mine did too (one firestick and one fire tv). A router reboot solved the problem.
  12. My office is right around the corner from there. I live in East Cobb and my commute is 20-25 min (8ish miles). Not bad at all, on average, for Atlanta. Bonus is that East Cobb schools are great, no need to pay for private school.
