These are killer-keeper stories, and exactly the kind I am ... nitty gritty planning stages, but what about the memories& stories?

Oh, the time I limped home from Vail to Detroit after a summer of Independence, Dammit, during which I bought ... wishes. That Beetle and I went through hell and back together, and I still have a soft spot for it...

I used to own a lovely red '68 Beetle with flared fenders and no reverse gear. I adored that thing anyway.
We all need to collaborate and put a book together. I truly love these stories.

Pity me please. I can now explore the other half of the country.

Ah, but see - I spent quite a lot of time at Sunnybank as a child, though I'd never been ... is not a coincidence that I ended up with hairy herding dogs - that's how much those books influenced me.)

How.Did.I.Miss.These.Books?
Easily corrected. I'm off to the library.
To make a long story short: if you're ever near Wayne, New Jersey, don't miss it - especially if you have your dogs with you.

Thank you!
Where in Wyoming?

Sorry, can't remember exactly - but it was one of the mountainous parts and it was **HOT** that day...We can narrow that down significantly based on that alone. You were somewhere in the northwestern part of the state, and it was between July and September.

More specifically, you were either in the Tetons, Big Horn or the Wind River Mountain range.
(The rest of that state is flat, windy and full of sage brush, antelope and jackrabbits.)
Okay, I can relate here. I got lost at 2-3 ... in Shreveport and I distinctly saw drug deals going down.

Now that you've reminded me, I got lost in East St. Louis, too...

National Lampoon's Vacation Redux!
Here's a good one for you. I actually had comments ... dogs ask me: "Are you taking your dogs with you?"

Oh geeezz... y'know, people like that just live in a totally different universe than I do. I just SO cannot relate to anyone who could possibly say anything like that!

Yeah, I can honestly say my socks were blown off then and I've not seen them since.

I think he probably does. The Element would be my preferred Field-Dawg car, but I also have to be able to haul kids from place to place.

If you don't mind moving crates in and out, the seats are really easy to pop back in place in the Element. That said, it wasn't a concern for me so I didn't really factor it into the decision. One thing to remember is that the back seat can really only comfortably seat two people because it splits in the middle and there are doohickies for reclining the seats between, as well as cupholders. (But I did have an actual plastic shelf in the middle of my Integra back seat, and people rode back there anyway!)

1972 SuperBeetle, pale blue + grey primer, bought for $200.Made it all the way across Western Canada, through the NE US, down to almost Mexico, back through Nevada and the great midwest. Then to school for a few years. Great car. Great memories.

GAWDAMMIT MELINDA!
Way to go, making me spurt my water all over the place. Leave it to you for a strong dose of humorous reality.

Muttering...

Thanks, Melanie:
I've become accustomed to having my crates in. It's to the point that moving out of my car (when I'm carpooling with someone else to a test or training day) is kind of traumatic. I never seem to remember to take some ultra-essential thing out of my car and move it into my friend's.

Good luck with that drive,

Yep, those are exactly the reasons I was thinking of. ... guys to give me a shove out of the mud.

My Galloping Grape (Dodge Grand Caravan) is going to get stuck someday, I just know it. We had a close call this spring. Between field tests and skiing trips, I'd really like AWD in the next car.

In my case, I suspect that someday our Vota ("Van Of The Apocalypse" - an evil Plymouth Grand Voyager) is going to break down by the side of some road. With this beast we are conscientious about maintaining our AAA road-side service and always carry a cell phone.
We are in the process of making Vota more comfortable for minor camping/dog events. We bought Skreens (window screens for autos - IIRC the website, go to www.Skreens.com ) and I'm planning on buying a tent thingy that I hitch onto Vota's back-side: http://makeashorterlink.com/?I28E62E3B . It's kind of goofy looking but I like the idea of being able to sleep/camp in our van yet have some ventilation & keep bugs out.

Those tent things are cool...several years ago when the Elements first came out, a friend bought one that came with the "camping package" a tent that attached to the rear of it.
On of my favorite things about the Element is the excellent car-type gas mileage
that it gets (I like the Scion's too, but I don't think they would be large enough).
My husband & I recently bought a "toy hauler" type camp trailer (the kind where
the back end flips down to load your quads/whatever). It is a great dog trailer,
since there is room for 3, possibly 4 36" crates in the back underneath the
bed. We took out the chairs/dining table set & left in the couch, so there is even
more floor space. The bad part is, however, my husband's pick-up gets about
the world's WORST gas mileage, so I refuse to drive it most of the time. I'm in
a 2 day trial over on the coast next month. It's about a 2 hour drive, but it's
cheaper for me to rent a hotel room for one night then it is to drive the GAS HOG
and pay to camp! :-)
