A Looooooong Car Ride
Yesterday we had to drive to Sutherlin, OR, about 175 miles south of here, to meet Marilyn who was buying our teardrop trailer from us. She's from Yreka, CA and had already made the drive up here once. We offered to meet her half way a week later, once she had a chance to get a cashier's check. We've taken Kendall on short trips in the car and she's ridden in from the coast with Julie, but never have we had her in the car for such a long trip. We left with plenty of time to make lots of stops on the way. The challenging part was that we couldn't stop with her at the usual rest stops. She hasn't finished her series of puppy shots yet, and we didn't want to expose her to any unnecessary dog viruses. We stopped at a Shell station near the Pioneer museum that didn't look like it had a lot of visitors and a church. We did have to make one stop at a rest stop so that the humans could "rest", too. Clyde ended up stepping in a big pile of doggie doo. Fun.
On the way back we stopped in historic Oakland. We ran into some people who have four Cavaliers in their family. What a great little town. It was built in the 1890's and has a bunch of little stores and an original soda fountain.
