Our “Last Thoughts” and things we forgot to tell you about our 2019 Spring Road Trip has been posted on “Rollin’ Down the Hallway”. This post has a LOT of pictures with a lot of color.
As we finish settling in back at home, we are excited about our next trips. The summer will see us traveling near home in North California; then this fall we will be visiting sixteen states four that are on the other side of the Mississippi or as Clark Griswold said “ the mighty Miss, the old miss, the old man…..Deep River”. We have done some of this route before, but wait we will be visiting some new sites along the way!!!
Franklyn 13 months Harriet 8 weeks
Our two puppies Franklyn (19 months) and Harriet (9 months) have only a few states under their collar so far, but they are still puppies. This is Harriet’s first road trip and she already has three states! How many states have you seen???
Daphney and Scoutie truly loved each other.
Two of our puppies (Daphney and Scoutie) in puppy heaven have been to 38 states and 2 Canadian provinces. Sandi and I can’t imagine going on a road trip without our puppies, yes it is challenging at times……but we always make it work.
Franklyn and Harriet today following the narrow path that Daphney loved to take that runs next to the main path.
Today we took the puppies to the beach Frankyln’s second time here (first time last fall), and this is the first time for Harriet. Harriet is something of a home body, her favorite place is under the covers on our bed at home or in the motor home. At home when she goes for a walk with Franklyn and I, she is carried at least 1/2 of our nearly two mile walk….she is not keen on walks. Today as we got to the path that leads to the beach from our campground something changed in Harriet and she took off running with Franklyn. We really believe that our puppies can sense the paths that our old puppies have gone, and believe me Scoutie and Daphney went down this path at least twice a day everyday we were here over the years (120 plus times). Harriet and Franklyn play with many of Scoutie and Daphney’s toys and sleep in their huge puppy bed, so she knows their scents.
Harriet REALLY loved the beach and truly became a new woman!!! We never knew Harriet could run as fast as Franklyn, but she can….even faster!!!

Here are some great memory pictures of Daphney and Scoutie on their road trips.
