Planning Our Summer Trip

It takes a LONG TIME to map out a TWO MONTH-LONG trip, especially when it involves four adorable yorkies!  First the parents need to decide WHERE they want to go, and apparently it is EVERYWHERE.  Once the cities are decided on, we must find campsites that are up to snuff.  Mummy is mighty particular about our campsites… they need to be safe for us to take walks and enjoy our site, without feeling too cramped.  Sometimes we run into limitations with the NUMBER of doggies that are allowed at a campsite.  The magic number is usually TWO.  Daddy will often call the campground and explain how well behaved we are, and we are very small doggies, and we are almost ALWAYS with our parents… then he asks if an exception might be made for the FOUR of us.  Almost always they say yes, but explain that if they get any “noise complaints” then we will have to leave.  We NEVER make noise so Mummy knows that won’t be a problem… well, unless Katie gets wound up!!!  After the reservations are all made, we need to start packing the AIRSTREAM, but that doesn’t usually start until about 2 weeks before we are due to leave on these EPIC TRIPS.  Until then, we are getting excited just thinking about all we’ll be doing as we head up the EASTERN side of the USA this summer… all the way to MAINE.  Mummy said that we’ll even get to have some LOBSTER once we get there!  Did I mention how EXCITED we are?  In a few months, we will make a post about the places where we plan to stop as we head up north… if you happen to be in the area, we would love to try and meet up with you… so please make sure to contact us so that we can write your information down!  If we don’t have your info, we have no way to contact you.  One of the best parts of our trips has been meeting our internet  friends IN PERSON. What are YOUR vacation plans for this summer?  We want to hear all about it and the things you are most excited to see.

Good Sam has a trip planner real neat out in the cities your going and stopping at gives you the option to select a campground dies not have to be Good Sam and tells you route mileage between each town and gas prices. You do have to be a Good Sam member to use it. They came out with a new version today. We are heading out RVing for 4 months May- September doing National Parks Yellowstone Glacier Banff Lake Louise Calgary and Idaho Coeur D Alene then Oregon Coast to California. We want to do NE coast in a… Read more »

Hi Millie! My Mommy told me that we’re not going anywhere this summer…BUT…we have good friends from a place called “Germany” coming to stay with us for 2 weeks in June! I guess my sister, Maggie, and I will be learning some new words in German! I think we’ll be going on some local sightseeing tours with everyone, so that will be fun! Kiss, Kiss! ~ Lucy

Not sure if we are going to be going this year or not yet, but if we do it will be Texas, and then on to monument valley! Mummy says I need to learn to keep quiet like my brother.. so not sure yet. And we need to work on getting a small rv! Mummy would like for us to get an airstream too, but not sure if it’s in the budget yet…

Sounds lovely. We’re not going anywhere this summer as we were over in New Zealand at the start of the yr to spend sometime with my sister who is very poorly.
Looking forward to your trip. XX X

Wow that sounds like another great trip. We went to see the Fall Colors this pass October and November in our RV with Miss Daisy, we loved it we had Maine Lobster too. As you know we live in Southern California, so it was a very long trip, we visited family on the way to and from. As you know Miss Daisy crossed the Rainbow Bridge on January 20th at the age of 14 yrs 11 months. So traveling will never to the same, with that said we will be Cruising to Alaska in September with our BFF. Have a… Read more »

Millie, I’m so excited about your trip!! All the pictures mummy shares make me feel like I’m right there with you, seeing all the beautiful and interesting places. ( I still think my favorite is when all you girls and your daddy were “running the bases” at the Field of Dreams) I think I’ve shown that video to everyone I know, lol lol !! The only vacation plans I have for the summer are back to the beach. I usually go to Holden Beach, not much happening there, but its pretty and peaceful!! Love to you and your family!!

What fun y’all are going to have!!!!! Our Mommy has a question Millie, how did you and your sisters learn to stay quiet? One of us is always quiet but one of us, whom shall remain nameless, is a volcano of excitement that explodes from her mouth constantly!!!!!!!

I can’t make my own comment so I’m just going to reply back to the last 1. We are on the way to Norfolk Virginia to see maybe ships. I’m fortunate old Levy’s or white letters on a white background so I can’t tell if my spelling is off 🙂

Hey now I can make an actual comment. We are going to Norfolk Virginia to see navy ships and submarines and the babies get to walk along nice paved trails by the ocean! I’m pretty sure we’ll have a lot of fun, but I doubt we get to see you 🙁

And we’re having the same issues. We have 7 little yorkies and so many campgrounds limit the number! Which sort of defeats the whole purpose in getting a camper! I don’t want to have to worry about who takes and who doesn’t takes little doggies and how many! It’s very frustrating!!

We have found that KOA campgrounds usually dont have limits and most are pretty nice. Good Sams is another family friendly one.

I hope you will be passing through in Connecticut…..would love to meet up. Mystic, CT is very nice. The babies can go to Old Mystic Village….some shops will have restrictions though. Connecticut has so many rules . There is a furbaby shop they can go in and my babies were welcomed in the Honey shop. Essex, CT is lovely too.

Oh Millie and all,

Have a wonderful time and don’t let Katie get too wound up over the lobster! It sounds like you’re going to explore the east coast and not venture out west this year, so I won’t get to see you. However, you’ll get to meet up with MANY old and new friends and see some great places too–what could be better?

Bisou bisou,

Hi girls, Your Mum is a pro at packing and having everything you need to enjoy your vacation. I’m not sure what were doing this summer. Our two granddaughters will be out of school after this coming Monday June 3. Because of my husband having to be close to home, day trips for my daughter and two granddaughters is best. My daughter and her family live on horse ranch. She and the kids live in the main house and Don and I live just across from them. We turned a barn into a house I’ve taken care of the kids… Read more »

Ohhhhh you sound very busy and that blueberry festival sounds yummy!!! We love to eat dried blueberries!!! And Mummy loves everything with blueberries in it!!!! As for the “website” mention in the comment box, I think that is just another means of identyfying WHO is making the comment… sometimes the person is associated with their own website, and if so, they would write it in that spot. I didn’t develop this site… it was done by WORD PRESS so it is just something that comes with the blog. I hope that clears things up. ??
