hey, P the K ... drive up to cody, wyo & get on the shoshone. it's always running. it'll take you about 6-7 hrs from FC, but so will taos.... if you're that jonesin', you do what ya gotta do, right? plus, the lower mellow stretch of the clarks fork may be doable by now too ..
your fastest route would be FC to laramie, to rawlins, to muddy gap, to riverton, to shoshone, to thermopolis, to cody ...
