I drive down to VA around the holidays every year to visit family. Because I travel with our pup, Rockford, and a few of our special needs guinea pigs, I make an extensive kit (in addition to the car kit), just in case. I include everything from food and water to heated blankets and a list of pet friendly hotels along the route.
I hope the weather will be more cooperative this year. We ended up in a nasty snowstorm last year. Once I made it to my family's home, it was beautiful to watch the snow fall. However, it was not so enjoyable on the roads. I've been making this trip 3 times a year, for 9 years and every drive is different.
If any of you are making a long drive this year, be careful out there. And if you see a crazy lady in a teeny car, loaded with a dog, a few guinea pigs, and jewelry supplies, wave and say "hi"!
Here's Fiona to wish you a happy holiday season.
