Mizzou mile marker 225

a.k.a. just outside of St. Louis, and yes, I'm blogging from the passenger seat. Technology is amazing. Particularly since I had no idea you could connect to the internet via some kind of Sprint card for a flat monthly fee. Thanks for bringing the card along, Dad.

Jerry, Cassidy, and Maxy are all doing quite well with the travel. Abby is too, in the car. She did a runner out of the motel room - not sure if Dad was trying to give us more space in the car, or the wind did actually blow the door open, but thankfully, and incredibly, Abbs ran into a room several doors down. Whew.

I'd like to hit southern RI sometime tomorrow night. My father, the co-pilot, is not so optimistic.

I'll keep you posted. And more about the movers at a future date.

Oh, so far, not a stitch knit. We're a little cramped in here, so I haven't braved it just yet. I'm afraid I'll just get going and some pet something will happen, and yarn and/or needes will be everywhere. Perhaps I'll give it a go tomorrow.

Good luck with all of it. I drove from Chicago to Ithaca NY with two cats on my lap in 1984. Packed to the gills 1978 Datsun B210. No AC. Manual shift. Scott was in the tiny U-Haul behind me. Let's just say, it's good to get to the destination on a trip like that.

I am glad Abby is safe! Knitting and driving under cramped conditions might be difficult, maybe you should keep it simple with a dishcloth or something.

Traveling with pets sounds like it's probably as much fun as traveling with kids :-)

It sounds like it's going well so far, hope you all get there soon. It must be crazy with the entire menagerie in the car.
