Flashback Friday!

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since we packed all of our belongings into a Penske truck and drove from Los Angeles to Brooklyn. This may come as a surprise to you, but Sid is a great traveler.  The cabin of that truck became our cozy little home for about eight days, and Sid was happy as a clam.  Seriously.

We put a rubbermaid container between the two bucket seats and put his bed on top so he could be up at our level.  His water dish sat on the dash between our cup holders, and his Petco safety strap kept him buckled in but gave him a little freedom to move around.

Oh, and we quickly learned that the only way to avoid mass mayhem on the highway was to store his food / treat supply inside the rubbermaid container he was perched upon.  You gotta learn some lessons the hard way.

Click through for a few photos from the first days of our trip:

Sid chills out in his mobile ela-bed while I neurotically focus on steering the truck through crazy canyons in Utah.

Sid and Brian strike a pose at a majestic Utah rest stop.

Sid gets a closer look at the rocky, pine-covered walls of Glenwood Canyon in Colorado.

Sid can’t bear to look at all of the uneaten corn as we drive through the Nebraska plains.

    So, Sid, which location do you like better CA or NY? How exciting that you got to see almost the entire country! You do look very relaxed, enough to strike a pose and do some sight-seeing. I like going places too, but hate being in the back with my seat belt on…I should be up front with all the action. I think my parents should buy a truck with a bench seat so I can ride in style. Have a great weekend and stay cool!
    Love,
    Payton

    Sid, I loves loves loves to travel too. I don’t know about 8 days. In fact, I think 5 hours is about all I can take. But I loves those 5 hours lookin’ at the scenery. . . scoping out the cars. . . sleeping.
    Love Noodles
