Wynston and I travel a lot, and it’s rare that we take a completely flawless trip. Granted, I’ve learned how to adapt to any sort of change in our travel plans, so I’ve become a pro at improvising. However, it can be stressful when something doesn’t go as planned. Whether your flight gets cancelled, it’s raining at a destination where you planned to partake in outdoor activities, or your dog has a medical emergency, I have tips (all from experience) on how to handle the situation.
You guys. I have so much to talk about. Write about. Share. Like, I don’t even know where to start. Our trip to Utah and Wyoming was supposed to include a visit to Idaho, but it ended up being such a bizarre experience that we didn’t make it there.
Bizarre. Yes, that’s a good word for this trip.
This is gonna be a long one, folks, but I hope you enjoy the craziness as much as I did 😉
Getting ready for an hour road trip is much different than preparing for a long road trip with your dog. When I say “long” road trip, I mean 6+ hours. In this post I share the ways I ready myself and Wynston for such adventures, and many of these tips can be used for any road trip, despite length. I go through a process to make sure that Wynston and I are prepared for extensive road trips, especially when I know we’ll be in the car for almost 12 hours. I hope this post is helpful for you. Safe and happy travels!
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.
