Just a bit curious, but what keeps dear Charlie from running off for some fantastic feline trail adventure??

Beautiful Pictures. We lived in Anacortes for several years and always enjoyed the Tulip fields and Deception Pass area is wonderful. Thanks for Sharing.

Thank you SO much for all the tips! longer trips would be a lot nicer if we had the cat with us too (instead of just the dog!)

Clarice,
The cat is really easy to take on the trips. We have had him on 10 day trips and he does fine. He's been up in the mountains walking in snow, in the desert getting shade under the truck, on a farm where we keep a very close eye because of coyotes. He seems to adapt and settle into every condition he's been subjected to and gets along just fine. I think he is less hassle than a dog because he takes care of himself if you give him what he needs. A bed, litter box, food and water, are about all he needs in the cab while driving and we can travel all day if needed. A dog you would have to stop to let the dog do business every couple hours.

Another person asked how we keep him from running off.
Planning ahead and knowing your surroundings. He always has his harness (not a collar) on with a leash when he's outside. Charlie knows the harness and leash means he gets to go outside and he gets excited about it. We wouldn't take him out in the middle of downtown but we would take him out in a quiet neighbourhood park. Again, use your head and know the situation you put your pet in.

Jeff

ah - that goes along with your earlier comment 'make it think it's his idea' perfectly - we'll have to get started on this project very soon!!

Was that sMores or sNores?

Seems like a great time you had. Great pictues, thanks for sharing them. Gives me the itch to go camping.

I see you understand the difference between dogs and cats. Dogs think they are part of the family. Cats know the family are their servants.

Great pictures.
To me it's like a big spring banner "TIME TO GO CAMPING". Very nice place.

Camper Jeff + Kelli,
"Well shoot, would have been fun to visit. I think I recall a pretty sharp looking orange or copper colored 2005 or so F350 Dually with a Lance and a clean 1997 or so black F250 with a Lance that looked just like my brothers truck. Were those you rigs? "

Yep, those were our rigs, the copper F-350 with the Lance is mine, and the 99 Ford with the Fleetwood is my best friend, and his wife. We generally make several trips throughout the summer. You bubble window is actually what caught my eye. Nice looking setup you have there. Hope to see you next time.

What's this, a trip report from Camper Jeff and Kelli that I missed? Glad I caught it now though, as my wife is very into flowers and does indeed want to visit the area. Super pictures and write-up and a great looking trip. Thanks a bunch for the report there Camper Jeff and Kelli. Hope you folks have a good summer!

Dave
