Breakfast At The Mangy Moose
The Mangy Moose is casual dining at its finest. Grab a booth, mosey up to the counter and place your order. The staff will bring it out when its ready. I ordered the French toast. The portion was huge! It didn’t cost an arm and a leg either! Service was quick. I was happy for that because I was late for my Gaperguide appointment.
I’m Late, I’m Late, for a very important date!
I found Gaperguide online when I was planning my trip. It’s kind of a backward GPS. Instead of you getting directions to something it tells you what you are seeing when you get there. It’s perfect for Grand Teton and Yellowstone. It’s definitely a step up from those DVD/tape road trips where you have to stick to their route or it doesn’t match. I figured it was worth a try. I was about an hour late getting to the store but the owner was waiting for me with his dog Indy.
Along with the electronic gadget I got a map of the area. It was pretty clear that the GPS I had rented would not be needed. There are only a few roads in the area so you really can’t get lost. With my new electronic BFF I would always know where I was. I couldn’t wait to try it out but with the storm increasing I put my exploring on hold. Instead I continued to the airport where I returned my GPS. They were very gracious about it. They probably knew it was stupid to rent it to me anyway.
I’ll tell you more about the Gaperguide when I start exploring. I kept the unit for 3 days. By that time I was pretty familiar with Grand Teton National Park and the Lower Loop of Yellowstone. Once I turned it in the car felt empty. I missed my electronic companion with all its tips, stories and details. I would rent it again and highly recommend it to anyone exploring the area.
