John was up at 4am to hit the road. He was suppose to pick Remington & Hanna up at 6am, & I got a call about 6:30 saying they were loaded & he was ready to head out to pick up our grandson ie relief driver. Haven't heard anymore so I assume that they are headed for California. John said he would keep in touch, but he wants to drive about 600 miles before they stop to rest. So he probably won't have time to call until they do stop. He plans on offering the fur kids water when they stop for gas or to eat, but probably won't remember to call me. (G)
John & Georgette were trying to load them. They had Hanna with 2 feet in the trailer, but that was all she was willing to do. John said Remington was standing right behind her, but nothing was moving. Dave, Georgette's husband was headed to work, stopped by, went behind them made a noise & Remington jumped in the trailer, with Hanna not far behind. End of problem..................whew!
Georgette made up a CARE package of treats & also wrote a letter for their new Mom. I didn't even get to say good-bye I haven't seen them for a month or more. That's OK, they are going to a great home & that's what is important.
One little irritant at least it is to me.............. if you take hay into California it has to be certified. He took some timothy pellets in case of emergency. But he is going to have to find a feed store once he crosses into CA & buy a bale of hay. Then he's going to have to find a place to put it in the van. Not sure where he'll find room, the van looked like they were going to be gone for weeks, not 4 days. We tried to think of anything that might happen & packed accordingly. So he has plenty of "STUFF" except for hay.
