The Saga Continues…

The road opened before us this morning as we headed out before sunrise toward Oklahoma City. Once through Oklahoma we entered into Arkansas and saw the scenery change from open prairie to forests of multi-colored trees. No pictures as the bugs increased with the temperature making the windshield a blurry mess from all the bug bodies that gave their lives to the open road.

The temperature continued to rise and the road seemed to grow in length before our final stop for the night in Tallulah, Louisiana. A 9 hour driving day finally came to an end. Sugar and Spice said they are sick of all of this traveling!

Tomorrow, Pensacola. Then the really hard work sets in!

I know Sugar and Spice are about done with traveling. They loved having a couch to sleep on in the motel tonight.

  1. I love open roads. Your fur babies look pooped. Too much fun, eh?

  2. Nine hours of driving? I manage 5 – 5/12 then I need to rest. Well done to all of you. Bless you for keeping us informed. I don’t know how you do it.
    Have a rest and a beer, before you start to pack up house. xxxx

  3. You four are hearty travelers. I hope the days back in Pensacola speed by and you can go HOME.

  4. We had a trip planned to the Civil War sites in the south the same year they had a series of tornadoes, rain storms and floods! We chickened out!

  5. I’m not surprised they are tired. You must be, too. I hope you’ll manage to fit a bit of rest before you start all your packing…

  6. Love their names Sugar and Spice, tired out with all the travelling!

  7. Poor Sugar and Spice! They do look tired. 💗

  8. The big thing is usually dehydration for the doggies. Shame.

  9. Sugar and Spice looked dead beat from the traveling. 🙂

  10. Almost done with your road trip ! What an amazing journey it must be, and with a great find of a home as your destination point! Safe and happy travels back to Florida ! Sugar and Spice look adorable yet so tired!
