Road Trip Company

Molly kept me company on an 8 hour road trip to Texas over the weekend. She basically slept the entire way. I sacrificed having a drink holder in the front console to allow room for a travel pillow for her head to rest on - such a cutie!

Zombie Apocalypse

This one always looks like it's got somewhere more fun and better to be instead of parked outside my office building. Curiousity got the best of me and I did some searching on the internet about the Zombie Response Team. Check out the interesting techniques to defend against the undead and trick out your ride.

Patriot Rental

I was excited to hear the guy at Hertz tell me I'd be renting a 2011 Jeep Patriot for a recent 3 day, 985 mile work trip. It sat much lower than what I'm accustomed to but was roomy and had some nice features inside. Silly, I know, but the best feature was the shelf in the dash that held all my travel gear like GPS, cords, sunglasses, hand lotion, etc. The satellie radio and lighted cup holders were handy and I found it interesting there was a 2 prong electric outlet in the center console. Makes me think I need to search around in my Wrangler to see if I have this option hidden somewhere.

Drive-in & Camping

I practically spent the entire weekend in the back of my Jeep. Hubby went on a motorcycle trip so I took Mom to the drive-in Friday night. That Sportz air mattress in the back made it pretty comfy and I ended up dozing through both movies. Early Saturday morning I loaded up the dogs and camping gear for a trip out to the lake. Sheba loves to swim and fetch and I thought it would be a good idea for her to teach Molly to love the water too. I decided not to take the tent and we spent Saturday night sleeping in the back as the full moon lit up the night and the windows open to the cool breeze. Waking up to the birds singing and fixing breakfast is my favorite part of camping out.
