Well, we made it! We’re in Las Vegas! (Oh shoot. That reminds me…I forgot to call my dad to tell him we’re here. Hi, Dad!)
The drive went smoothly. We stopped three nights along the way, in Fort Stockton, Albuquerque, and Flagstaff. We also stopped in Roswell just for the afternoon where we made a quick trip to the International UFO Museum and bought E. a glow in the dark alien t-shirt.
One thing I wasn’t expecting on the drive was how different it would be with a dog. Stops had to be either quick or pet-friendly. Hotel nights were always nerve-wracking since we hoped the dog wouldn’t go crazy and bark or whine. We had to worry about his eating habits since travel made the dog nervous and he stopped eating for a day.
I know there are people who love traveling with their pets, but I don’t think we’ll try it again anytime soon!
The 1,300 mile drive was a great experience and we saw some beautiful scenery along the way, especially in northern New Mexico and Arizona. But I’m happy to be here in Las Vegas.
We made it! Let’s begin the next chapter…
