Looks like interest in everyone’s fav-er-it bear is hotting up with a live action movie with CGI Yogi and Boo-Boo out at Christmas.
Dan Aykroyd is the motion capture and voice of the new Yogi (taking over from Daws Butler of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons and Greg Burson) and Justin Timberlake (what?) as Boo-Boo Bear.
Jellystone Park has been losing business, so greedy Mayor Brown decides to shut it down and sell the land. That means families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors — and, even worse, Yogi and Boo Boo will be tossed out of the only home they’ve ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove that he really is “smarter than the average bear” as he and Boo Boo join forces with their old nemesis Ranger Smith to find a way to save Jellystone Park from closing forever.
You’ll find out scanty details at IMDB, Wikipedia and a 404 on yogibear.com.
I’m hoping the Yogi Bear will be smarter than the average movie adaptation and not another Scooby Doo.

We planned for an early start. The alarm clock buzzed at 6:30am, but needless to say I didn’t get up until 7:00am. A quick coffee, slice of bread and jam and a splash in the kitchen sink (the RV’s bathroom tap has given up for good) and we were on the road for our 322 mile dash to Idaho.
One of the nicest aspects of a road trip in a motorhome is that when you feel like changing your itinerary, you can. And that’s exactly what we did today.

For the first time on this trip, we woke up to rain bouncing off the roof of the RV as yesterday’s sunshine had given way to thick Washington cloud.
