Well, I'm beginning to develop a real case of the dreaded winter time cabin fever. I think there are a few others here who seem to be suffering as well. So, I'm proposing a cyber vacation trip for anyone who is up for it. I'll give ya some idea of what I have in mind and the rest of you can jump in and add whatever wild road trip ideas you come up with. Well, here's what I'm doing for starters. Our old 1996 Coleman Pop-Up camper sleeps 6, and we have the add-a-room too, so a few more can bunk in there. I'm scheming that we can get some big ole semi truck tires somewhere for it, and raise it off the ground enough to attach a chicken tractor under it so we can take a good sized flock of chickens on vacation with us. I'll have to make a place for lil Spanky, our lab, but she'd probably be more happy riding in our full sized Chevy van (Chckn D Van) with us. Since I'm in MI where there's lots of snow, and I'm hoping that we can think of someplace where our snow shovel won't be needed for it's intended purpose, we can strap that to the back somewhere to use for scraping the poo when we stop for the night. Sometimes Walmart will let people stay in their parking lots while traveling, but if we aren't careful with the poo, they'll be calling ahead and warning the other stores along the way about us. Does anyone have an idea of how we can keep the waterers from spilling when we go uphill? I'd like to head for Mexico to the nice warm waters of the gulf, and want to stop along the way and pick up Kat and her SO (gritsar) and a few of her chickies as well. I think that lilbit and Lilith would love the trip. And I think she has a dog or 2 that she couldn't leave behind. She's in Arkansas, anyone else along the way that we would have to stop and pick up? We could always turn this into a caravan, and make a banner to fly over us announcing that it's a BYC rally. Who's in?
