Home is Where the Bed is

Hunny watched the vast lands of Nebraska for a few minutes before returning to her restful slumber in the back seat.

We thought we had the great idea of driving all night, into the next day, by switching off and sleeping in the back seat. We were sadly mistaken. Seems that particular back seat is made only for pets under 25 lbs.

Fatigue - mental, physical and emotional - got the best of us. We found ourselves on the side of a country dirt road in Iowa.

Just fifteen minutes and I'll be good to get behind the wheel again.

Yeah, no.

We managed to pull it off for 22 hours (not constant driving) but we just couldn't do more.

We made it through Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Nebraska and most of Iowa.

More than half way across the country.

From desert lands to rocky mountains, we've watched deer and antelope play (not together). We've seen cattle, unaware of their impending doom. Horses, big and strong. Goats too. And prairie dogs in the fields of Colorado - just the cutest little things. Lots of birds -- some unfamiliar. Cactus of all sorts. Trees. Dirt, rocks, lava, boulders, snow ... And too many bugs. Poor things -- they're ruining the front of the peacemobile.

We're resting for today and tonight. Yay!

We've got about 1100 miles to go. We've gone over 2200 already. So we're looking at 2 more 10-12 hour driving days (with bedrest in between) before we reach our destination in New Hampshire.

Exciting. Exhausting. Expensive. And worth every moment. :)

Nebraska is so boring, at least the parts I've traveled through. I was born in Iowa. Good luck on the remainder of your travels.

Those pictures are adorable. It looks like Gracie is doing good too. Yeah!

Donna, Nebraska was way more exciting than I remember Kansas to be. I was expecting miles of flatlands (like Kansas) but was pleasantly surprised to see miles of green rolling hills, farm life and some trees. The bugs though, bleh.

Robbie, this is my favorite picture of Hunny from the trip. She looks so introspective. Piper and Gracie were fast asleep.
