OK Here goes:

Awesome report!

I'm a bit jealous, you saw so much of Yellowstone :'(. I spent most of the time in the Tetons - can't wait to go back and do Yellowstone properly.

Delta Skypessos. Shocking I know but that was in the days before I was on DDF.

Lol I was jealous of you because I didn't get a chance to do the Tetons.

Fishy, your pictures have me actually considering going back there again on my way back east, seeing what I've been missing by never doing Grand Teton properly...

What I'm dying to do is go back to Yellowstone in the winter, it's out of this world, not to mention minus the tourists.

I was there end of May / beginning of June (I don't remember exactly) and it was still winter-ish. It was absolutely deserted. IIRC it snowed when we were there.
I wanted to come in from the beartooth highway but it was still closed for the winter, other than that I think the rest of the park was open...

Dude told me he backcountry skies it during the winter, and then goes to the hotsprings and dips in the middle of nowhere (he knows which are safe)

Seems like a proper trip requires a shabbos, no? Seems impossible to do enough sun-Fri, correct (hence you skipping out on Yellowstone)?
Any places for shabbos driving distance?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

I'd say so. There's a Shliach in Jackson who provides meals (and sometimes a minyan) IIRC. I have a friend who did that and was quite pleased.
