Wooooo, multistate bagging trip! We took a family vacation/road trip to Yellowstone some years ago that included your Billings - Gillette - Rapid City route (in reverse order). Pretty part of the country, in a wide-open-spaces sort of way.

I will be very interested to hear what you think of those courses and Spearfish Canyon. We have friends near Gillette, WY and I expect to be back out that way again. But this time I'll bring discs.

Random factoid: Locals pronounce Pierre, SD as "Peer".

I will also be interested in your thoughts on the Sioux Falls, SD area courses. One of my retirement projects is a bagging trip up I-29 from Omaha, NE to Fargo, ND.

Sounds like a great trip, hope y'all have a blast!

And I would put a great deal of trust in course recommendations from brentjacobs and throwbot.

Ah, nice.
Given that constraint, brentjacobs's suggestion of Sunset in Mandan, ND is a fine idea. But definitely get Patterson!

I've got 9/13-14 tentatively penciled in on my calendar.

Oh trust me, those are on my wishlist. I'll probably only have 11 days though, so that'll be a different trip. But it crossed my mind.

I'll look into Sunset when I get home. I don't remember seeing that one.

And that would be greatly appreciated if you showed us around Diamond X. It looked like it might be tricky to navigate. 👍

Did no discing out there but Glacier is out of this world.

Really enjoyed Waterton Lakes NP across the border too.

That was part of my initial plan, seeing Yellowstone. I was thinking of driving to Bozeman MT at first. Wanted to get Blue Mountain and possibly sneak a course in in Idaho, you know, like Beaver Dick because I'm very mature

I seen that you played that one too. It just made more sense with the time I had to stay a little closer to make sure I have enough time to bag courses and see the sights. The wife can bag courses with the best of them, but we're not getting any younger. Better to pace ourselves a little bit.

Ok, I actually did look at that one real quick when I was mapping out some road trip routes. Mandan threw me off a bit, but that's right by Bismarck. I'm going to add that to my itinerary right now.

I checked out some pictures and WOW!!! That place looks amazing. The only problem is we'll be in SE MT only. That's more NW MT. But I do want to go (fly) over to play northern Idaho at some point, and that gives me all the more reason to do so. And the wife agrees which never hurts.

I’ll put the dates down as well. I should be moved back to Billings by then. Taking the following week off so won’t be able to swing an all day deal but will shoot to be available to play the X. Happy to hit some other rando pelts if time/itinerary allows.
