Aww, have fun! Funnily enough, we're heading down to LA/SD today for the weekend, but if you're stopping by SLC on your way back, say hi! if you can.
Yellowstone is fantastic. Seriously though, stay on the walkways like the signs say, don't stray off. There are many areas with unstable ground and people have fallen through and been killed when they get dropped into scalding acid laced water.
Actually, I liked the opener. Agreed, it was silly, but it was silly in the old Top Gear way of being silly. it was silly in the same way as driving a Micra convertible with a paper bag over the head or applauding the coat hanger in the new Vauxhall Astra was silly.You really should. It's probably one of the best standard format ones they've made in a long time. Opener is a bit silly but after that it really gets into its stride.
That sounds like a brilliant way to spend the day, to be honest.... bettern than mine.
