Road Trip Herd Style

Hu-Dad took a day off from his busyness around his next novel release and took us on a road trip to Clinton, Tennessee.

Hu-Dad took a break from all of the craziness leading into the launch of his next novel and took us on a road trip to Clinton Tennessee. We found a shady parking space right on Main Street and entertained people as they strolled and shopped. Yes, we are a working breed and, in this case, our job was looking cute. We think we did an outstanding job. That’s Frankie Suave in his crate (his preferred method of travel), Landon (Boom Boom) with the prime back row seat, and Roscoe at the passenger window. Don’t worry, His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey was in the car, but is hidden behind Frankie.

    Just noticed that you got a land rover defender. No more Jeep?

      Painful choice with lots of debate, but no more Jeep. We’re loving the Defender.

    I used to live in Clinton TN, and Oak Ridge too. Now if you guys ever make it up to northern MN…

    The sure are a crowd pleaser. Huskies never fail to attract attention. Can only imagine 4!!

    Do you still have the Sibe RV? I loved seeing the Herd in Asheville in the Jeep!!!!

    What a reminder of the time when our “herd” of four travelled in the back of an Isuzu Trooper. Three loved the giant crate, but one preferred the cramped space on passenger side (so he could put his head over front seat to “Mom”)

      We used to travel with six in a Jeep Wrangler with the windows removed. Made for quite the sight.
