We Made It!

We made it safely to Lodi today and thankfully without incident. There was fresh snow in the pass on the way down and it was snowing while we were going through, but we thankfully didn't have any problems. The biggest pain in the butt was the 200+ miles of wicked windy highway. I hate wind to begin with, but driving in it really sucks. Especially when you feel like you're going to get blown off the road!

As you can see from the picture, the dogs have settled in quite nicely.:0) Even though they are both serious bed hogs, I'm looking forward to having them sleeping in the bed with me while we're down here.

We've basically spent our entire day driving, so not really much to report. Though I thought I'd post some pictures of the well organised and packed truck.;0)

The sad part is that everything won't fit so nicely when I'm quickly taking down all our stuff and trying to pack the truck up in an orderly manner, but still get the heck out of dodge on Sunday afternoon. I seriously need a van!

And guess what?! I get to sleep in tomorrow!! We can't start setting up our pop-up tents until 1:00pm, so I get to have a nice kicked back morning with the dogs.:) Here's hoping that the wind isn't quite so powerful tomorrow!

So where exactly do you fit in that bed? I have enough trouble with my 65 pound Rottie.

Sounds like a really fun event. Good Luck!

I love the blanket! (Weird, I know, but my first reaction; it'd look nice in my bedroom so I noticed it).

I'm very impressed with your packed truck. I couldn't believe how easily we fit in my trainer's van with 6 dogs and 3 people, plus all our show and training supplies and things for a 3 day weekend. It was still comfortable. I still only have a 4-door car, so I need to upgrade to at least a truck. One day!

Can't wait to hear how the weekend is going. I canceled my agility entries for a show next month to enter an obedience trial that's offering Beginner Novice - and I thought, what the hell, and entered her in Rally too! Hopefully it wasn't a huge mistake.

Good luck!!
