Well, we’re back safe and sound (for the most part) in Atlanta from our 3-month road trip. I say mostly because Chance picked-up some gastro thing-y during our last 4 days and was really sick. He still ate, naturally, but threw up or squirted out anything he consumed. He’s better now, thank goodness, but the vet couldn’t confirm what the problem was.
So now it’s back to “real-life”, and let me tell you, re-entry is tough. It seems like there is so much to do that it feels overwhelming, but given time, life will get back to being a bit more routine. ( I, personally, like routines to a certain extent.)
Anyway, during our 3-months on the road, there were lots of observations I made and things I learned, so I thought I’d share some of it with you.
Things I learned:
To style my hair under a public bathroom hand dryer (and it actually looks half-way decent).
To not mind peeing in a bucket at night.
To cook a healthy, flavorful meal on a campstove.
That there is a HUGE difference between travel with 2 pups and travel with 3 pups.
To be more patient with my furkids.
During our travels, our campgrounds have had bears, cougars, skunks, raccoons, and snakes. But nothing was as bad as the biting insects.
That Vancouver is STILL my favorite city in the world!
Girls are much messier than boys in public showers.
That 3 pups are warmer than a sleeping bag.
That we should all get out and Play in Nature!
It’s very liberating not to shave, wear makeup or jewelry.
I can actually live without chocolate. Without internet? Not so much.
That there could actually be a time of “No More homeless Pets”
Insect repellant w/ DEET will corrode just about any watch, camera or sunglasses lens.
That yes, I can!
Now that I have access to wi-fi on a full-time basis,I’ll be updating both my sites with photos and stories from the trip.
