Not only have I become passionate about traveling with Wynston, but I’ve taken a particular interest in how to travel on a budget. Part of traveling with your dog on a budget includes bringing your own snacks. When you pack your own food, you save money and generally eat healthier. So grab a cooler and pack these snacks to share with your dog on a road trip!
Recently I received a generic Google email, which I tend to ignore and trash. But one caught my eye with the subject line Amanda, here’s your 2018 Timeline. Hm. “Okay,” I thought, “My interest is piqued.” So I opened it up and the first thing I saw was a little map of all the places I traveled in 2018. My initial thinking was, “Oh, that’s kind of cool!” I scrolled down a bit and the next photo I saw said that I traveled 14,515 total miles in 2018. Wynston traveled everywhere with me in 2018, which means that he also traveled over 14,000 miles. Let’s dig a little deeper.
Nine days into the new year, I felt a sudden urge. That “I just wanna get out of here” urge. Within 30 minutes of that initial feeling, Wynston and I were well on our way. I filled up my gas tank, grabbed a cheeseburger to share with my boy, and headed west on the I-10. All I knew is that we were going to head toward California. Because why not?! In life, right now, I’m just going where the wind takes me. And on January 9, 2019, it took us to Indio, CA and The Salton Sea!
The 2018 Phoenix Lexus Pet Safety event was the first time in my five year blogging career that I got to bring two of my loves – cars and dogs – together for one amazing cause. Presented by A Girl’s Guide to Cars, this special event was hosted at Earnhardt Lexus to teach pet parents about car safety for dogs and cats. In attendance to teach us all about proper pet restraint in vehicles were two incredible representatives from Sleepypod! I was truly in my element, as not only do I enjoy focusing on traveling with Wynston, but my passion for cars stems from when I was a child. I just wish I could attend the next event 😉 It was too much fun for Wynston and I! I hope you’ll enjoy my photos and some interesting facts that I learned.
You all know that traveling with Wynston is my favorite hobby! Whether I’m heading out on the road or sky, I always have Wynston in tow. Traveling is much more fun with a canine companion! Something that I preach when traveling with my boy is safety, especially in the car. I’ve written several blog posts about traveling with dogs, but now we get to be a part of a first hand pet travel safety event at Earnhardt Lexus! The best part? You have the opportunity to join us, Sleepypod and A Girl’s Guide to Cars at the Earnhardt Lexus dealership on December 1, 2018 to learn more about the importance of pet travel safety. Plus, enter to win an amazing Sleepypod prize package!
