    If you can’t find one, somehow, you could potentially get a big-sh tarp. Maybe one of those winter-wonderland type tarps that have doors. You could have a palace between your tent and your tarp.

    The group site is only for groups, so unless you’re taking six or more friends, that one’s out. Both of the alternates are nice. Your wife can only drive within about two miles of those sites. ...

    JNI64, I’ll show you around some spots in Yellowstone if you’ll show me around the Dolly Sods. :-) I’ve always heard about the place, just never gotten there. You make it sound really interesting.

    I never saw a lot of pink lady slippers in PR, but in June, I usually saw some, in dry open areas, under big pine trees. I think they were earlier, but in wet areas there were always marsh marigolds,...

    Odd Man Out’s suggestions are correct.

    If you could do #1 and add a night at a site like Coves, your mileage would probably make you happier.

    Look for Kelly Cosmic sleeping bags. They’re usually inexpensive, come in both down and synthetic fills, and work quite well. You can often find them for sale.
