Many people have asked where we’re actually going on WVT. It helps no one if I just rattle off some dates, so it’s perhaps best to answer this in pictorial form. This is a map that Harrison drew up today. The red dots are cities that we are definitely planning on visiting. The black squiggles are stretches of route where we aren’t entirely sure what is happening.
Others have asked if our flatulent Frenchie will be coming along for the ride. Bodger will sadly not be joining us on Wedding Victory Tour for three reasons. First, we don’t want to impose his presence/gas on our friends who are nice enough to open their homes to us. Second, not all hotels are dog-friendly, and we are trying to stick with one chain throughout the entire trip. Third, as a brachycephalic breed, Frenchies don’t do well in heat, so we wouldn’t be able to roll the windows down and hop out of the car for spontaneous sightseeing or meals. (Fourth, Bodger farts a lot in the car, so we might die of asphyxiation.)
Don’t feel too bad for him, though. He’ll be staying in the choicest accommodations at Château Lois, AKA my mom’s house, with her two dogs, Gryphon, the Briard, and Neville, the not-quite-all-there Old English Sheepdog. You should also not feel bad because Bodger is the least loyal of all creatures and would probably push me under a train if he thought it would advance his comfort in any way.

I hope those dots in Southern California are Los Angeles/Ventura and San Diego…because I want to meet you guys; play your tour guide! Otherwise…I’ll hunt you down to meet you. LOL.
Yes! We will be hitting both LA and SD!
I had a little time this morning and was wondering how long a basic trip would be; I threw in Portland, the Grand Canyon, Montreal and odd places near Nova Scotia. It looks like a long, varied and fun trip! http://goo.gl/maps/V5D9W .
Ha, thanks, Chris!
You might wanna stop for lunch/dinner in Albuquerque, NM. It’s a nice little town, and the Natural History Museum there is pretty cool. Sadie’s Dining Room serves New Mexican Food and is pretty yummy. It’s 6 hours from the Grand Canyon, so it makes a good meal stop leaving Arizona.
Thanks!! We’ll definitely try to hit up Albuquerque. I think we’re going to make a page with a form for suggestions so we can keep track of all this awesome stuff that we didn’t know about.
Ooo, I love the sneak preview of the map! 🙂 LOL, Bodger should have a pic-a-day blog for what he is up to at summer camp at your mom’s 🙂
MMM…gotta love that dot in random northeast Ohio! 🙂
