Although we try to take things at a fairly leisurely pace, some trips require long days of driving. They can be exhausting. We break things up by sharing the driving, listening to audiobooks and podcasts, and stopping frequently to walk the bark babies and ourselves. I also work on the laptop while we’re motoring along.
When the alarm goes off well before dawn, we often groan and grumble, especially if we haven’t had our caffeine yet. 🙂 But then, once we get rolling, we’re rewarded with glorious views as the sun rises in front of us. It makes getting an early start worth it.
