"If we get an RV, then we can drive across with the cats." That was Jo's bright idea; Chuck (the cat whisperer) agreed.
Then. . ."We need a truck to tow the RV, don't we?"
Now, meet the schizo couple with a Prius AND a Ford Ranger.
Next. . . We'll just go look at trailers to get an idea; no buying, and nothing bigger than 22 feet!!
Then. . .The perfect lightweight 21 foot SONIC trailer is on the lot. The only one there of its size. It is sweet > murphy bed, a bump out dinette, lots of room...."Hey it even has two extra bunk beds." Hmm, bunk beds? "Let's invite Joanne and Ray to have a grand cross country adventure! Yes! And we can call ourselves the SONIC BOOMERS!
"Wait, four people, two cats, visiting friends. stopping at National Parks, and having a grand adventure??? Better leave the cats with friends and fly back for them. Yup.
Post Script: We just discovered yhe SONIC is actually a 27 foot trailer!
And we have no idea how that happened.
