Here's the biggest one I seen while in "Mosquitosodo". The rain and warmth really brought them out for blood.

Doug, must agree with you there, we just did that drive (trailer less) this week, I had forgotten about the straight stretch of road near Grand Rapids MN which goes on forever with just trees around, without any of the lakes that the state is known for. But we did it as well to save time and gas. It was interesting to see that as we came east gas was pricier, from 3.54 in ND up to one place I saw in MI for 3.99. Still much better than here in Burlington ON at 1.42/l. Ouch! In MB we are only at 1.30.

Curious to know. Have ya decided on your return route through Montana and Yellowstone?

Suggest you use a smaller font. I can still read it.

I think that same mosquito bit me last night in my backyard. We are heading to the Whitewater State Park in southeastern MN next week. The park is in the bluff lands and it is known for not having Mosquitos due to little or no standing water.

We have... We're spending a couple of nights in south-west Montana, entering Yellowstone from the west to spend a couple of nights at Madison campground, then heading east via the Beartooth highway. I suspect it will be an "interesting" drive...

But that's still a few weeks away.

Beartooth Higway

We traveled to Yellowstone via the Beartooth Highway and we can attest to the idea that is an 'interesting' drive. Take your time and stop at available viewing sites. The views are amazing.

Did you have the 5.0 TA when you drove the Beartooth?

I think I read that trailer towing on Beartooth is not a good idea, particularly for larger units and/or inexperienced driver/towing.
