The Gathering of Old Faithfuls 2023

A 6-day stretch in August of 2023: Arriving Tuesday, August 22nd through Sunday, August 27th, departing Monday August 28th (or any span of your choice therein).

The dates are somewhat later in August than we have chosen in the past. We think the park census will start decreasing considerably about the time of our arrivals, making it easier and faster for us to get around the park. Val and I spent most of the last 2 summers just outside the park and the crowds were crazy but dwindled substantially the last 2 weeks of August. 

We will handle this gathering much as we did for the 2021 reunion: Folks went their separate ways during the days and we all got together each evening for food and beverage at the picnic grounds or the new outdoor public table and seating area along the front of the OF Lodge, or the 2nd or 3rd floor of the Inn if the crowds aren’t too bad. 

On a personal note, there were difficult moments at our 2021 gathering as we remembered Gary Henderson who passed away in 2020. Gary and I spent years searching for “lost” savages, and for many of you, your first reconnection with fellow savages was via the golden voice of Gary on the other end of the line. Fortunately, at the last minute, Mary Jane Henderson managed to attend the gathering with friend Debbie Davis. Yes, there were tears but an equal number of smiles! 

Note: Yellowstone’s reservations system has dramatically changed!

This is a copy of the new reservation policy at

On the 5th of each month, we’ll begin accepting reservations for the same entire month of the following year. For example, on April 5, 2022, guests will be able to make Yellowstone reservations for applicable dates and properties from April 1 through April 30, 2023. On May 5, 2022, guests will be able to make reservations for May 1 through May 31, 2023, and so on.

Once the new booking window is in place, on the 5th of each month guests will be able to reserve the applicable future periods online beginning at midnight (12:00 a.m.) Mountain time or over the phone beginning at 7:00 a.m.
