The Journey Begins

In case you are wondering why I haven't been around lately, you will find the answer on Newly Nomads. I do intend to post some personal blogs along the way (like when I finally get my art supplies out), but for now we seem to be more focused on giving an update on where we are on the road. Please say a little blessing for our kitties we left behind today in Wisconsin while we take on the open road. I miss them, and I hope that being left behind isn't too dramatic of an experience for them.... I wish they could be with us for the duration but I don't think they'd enjoy it much. Thanks for checking in.

The whole trip? Goodness NO. But they did come along in the back of the truck.

have a safe trip!
I'm sure the cats would not enjoy it. Those I met are lazy creatures.

It's like surround-sound with the blogs - so many different views of the journey. Just read about the prayer flags 'saving' the bike,and here they are in full colour!! What a lovely idea for the blessings to pervade the country.
I know how you feel about your feline babies - i left 2 in Australia when I moved here, being loved in what was my home by a friend; one is still alive (now 17 - 18), who I've had since she was 4 weeks old; after 6 years I still miss her, and feel sometimes sad I will probably not see her again.
Just read a heartwarming cat story on yarnagogo.com/blog/ - her beloved boy (now looking like a weatherbeaten sailor) turned up at the door after 15 weeks awol. (the story is a couple of posts back - "look what dragged..").
Every cat lover who (and even seemingly hardened hearts!) will understand what this would be like.
I will keep your babies in my prayers, but I think your choice was wise - an adventure such as yours would soon wear thin on the feline measure of how life should be lived. Far better a home, good food, good love and the occasional postcard!!
