I woke up a couple hours east of Jackson Hole Wyoming just off of 287. I arrived after dark (on the 3rd) so really had no idea where I was, but the stars were bright until the moon came up which was even brighter. Chuckles and I wandered a bit and saw the little creek on the other side of the berm, then I put up my curtains for the first time – since I wasn’t quite sure if there would be people around, and cozied into the car and crashed.
Woke up to beauty! There was no one else camping and we were a ways from the owners’ house. We took a stroll to find the bathroom and I was relieved that no one else was there! I have a recurring nightmare about having to poop and the only place to go is super public (the most extreme was a toilet on top of a lifeguard tower) . So as you can imagine this could have been quite stressful – BUT there was no one there – so as it turned out I had one of the most pleasant morning constitutionals I’ve ever had.
The next night I had a place to camp outside of Cody and could have gotten there in 2 hours by going North on a bigger highway. I decided instead to backtrack and go through Teton and Yellowstone National parks – since I was in the neighborhood. It was a long day of driving but I was happy to get to see it all. I’ve made a few little videos of the day – starting with a little tour of my car set-up and then the views as a drove with the music that was on.
Some other random images from my day.
Once again, I got to my campsite after dark – it was basically just a space in a retired couple’s yard – they had wireless so I caught up on the news (all snuggled in my car) and went to sleep.

How did you know where you could camp in someone’s yard? Do they have signs? That is so interesting. Did they charge you?
Yeah it’s an app called hipcamp. It’s like air b&b. You could let people camp in your driveway if you needed a little extra cash! 😀
Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I’m intrigued by the toilet on top a life guard stand!
