It was sort of a challenge getting the remainder of my belongings into the car. A Scion XD isn’t that big. And when you put two cats in it, it gets even smaller.
We were wheels up by 1pm. I drove and Babette was quite situated between all of the pillows, the ukulele, and the food. First stop was Reno. At one part of the journey we had some beautiful storm lighting.
Hours passed. It was decided that instead of trying to “walk the cats” on their harnesses at some rest area, I would find a gas station that has one of those outdoor bathrooms around back. This way, I could bring in the cats, close the door, and have them use the makeshift litter box I prepared. Genius! Although Holden was not having it. Howling Holden was not in a good space. I’ll write more about that latter…
Well we braved some intense rain, a little snow, and finally pulled into our Hotel around 1am. Zzzzzz
Next stop: VEGAS
