I usually don’t post about a trip until I get back, but this time I have a house sitter for our trip.
Actually, I have two. Nathan was told to “Stand by” by the marines, so he can’t leave the state. It’s possible that he’ll be deployed to South Korea for a “training exercise.” So until they give him the order, he’ll be home. Michala’s boyfriend will still stay here as well. None of us know when Nathan will get the order and I don’t want the animals alone.
No, we are not taking the dogs. Togo is getting old, and Appollo is a very hyper puppy. He’s smart, but is pretty stubborn, which isn’t a great idea when you have to pull into a busy truck stop for a bathroom break. It’ll be a few more months before I’ll have him trained enough to travel. Fortunately, he loves Nathan and Michala’s boyfriend, so he isn’t among strangers.
I’m not sure if I’ll be posting at any point this week, but I’ll have plenty to talk about when I get back. I’ll be spending the bulk of the ride (if I’m not driving) plotting short stories.
