Starting a New RV Adventure

Cheesewhiz RV Face

Long time readers sure know this face – the Cheesewhiz RV Face


Hey, I have never been in the RV. Why is the hu-dad saying this is a training run for me? What is to learn?

We are headed to Big Ridge State Park for a nice long weekend.  Three big reasons:

1 – It is a great park with lots of hiking trails.

2 – We need to get the RV set up for the camping season.  Always good to do a shorter break-in trip to see what has gone wrong over the winter.

3 – A certain young pup needs to learn how camping works – like how to sit quietly on a drop line.  We are thinking he will need lots and lots of practice – and we might need some patience.

P.S. – We are ignoring that Thursday morning it was 14F and snowing lightly.  We are calling it spring.

    Sounds like fun! We can’t wait to hear how Typhoon adapts to camping.

    It’s cold here too…but the flowers are starting to pop up, so we are in Spring mode! 🙂 Hope you have a nice trip!

    Good luck, Ty! I’ve been practicing with a tether in the house when I’m just too nutzo. I’m doing OK – it’s just for a little while until I stop trying to get the OLD dogs to play with me. I bet you’ll do fine and learn from the Herd!

    Have fun! We can’t wait to see photos!

    What will be Ty’s place in the line up?

      That is going to take some figuring out. Right now, he is placed between his pals Frankie and Cheoah. If he needs some “special” training he will be placed between QNTE and Kiska. That would be known as tough love.

    I so want to be reincarnated as a Sibe pack member in the Thundering Herd!

    Good luck everyone! You are so gonna need it. I bet it will be fun. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

    Ayla sez: Me’n Ice are thinking this is going to be stretching EVERYONE’S patience, The Herd as well as the hu-Dad & Mom. Oooooooh, wonder how much QANTE will put up with from Ty.

    Snort! Can’t wait to see how Ty handles his first trip! I foresee a lot of discontent on the gangline!
