Talk about a bed hog! Mistie hops up on the bed as soon as we fold it down - before we have a chance to straighten the covers, etc... and she lays crossways on the bed and looks at us like we're intruders if we try to get her to make room for us! She's not there in the morning when we wake up, but as soon as she know's we're awake, she hops right back up and stays there until we start to store the bed! Disgusting when you have to have your dog's permission to do anything!

You got to love them, last year when we were out our Yorkie was sleeping under the blanket when our other dog a Russel/Yorkie mix jumped up on the bed and stepped on her. OMG I thought we were going to have a dog fight right there and then.

We picked up our 24R in Michigan last June and drove it home to Denali, it was a fantastic trip other then an alternator failure in BC Canada.

As Taylorgso mentioned we are currently excepting Solera camping reservations at our house....

Seriously if you do decide to drive up make sure to contact us when \ if your in the Denali Park area. We have lived here over 30 years and can help you with logistics.

We have Bernese Mt. Dogs and they currently are sleeping outside on the back deck at -15. When we travel they love to sleep on the bed with us but its either them or us.....with their thick hair they eventually get hot and end up on the floor anyway.

I am currently in So. Calif and its 37 outside this AM. The locals are dressed like they are leaving for an Antarctic expedition....
Feels like summer to me!!
Guess its all about what your use to.....

Traveling in our Solera today - currently east of Houston. Very, very windy, raining and cold :-(. Hopefully it gets better further west. Solera is hanging in there, but if we hadn't changed the sway bar - we would not be on the road! I hate winter.
