Thanks, one and all! First trip starts tomorrow morning...heading to West Virginia. It's a long drive, but we always go up there in the fall. My wife's family is all up there, and we take the dogs- 4 of them.
They're little (2 Chiweenie brothers, a chihuahua/terrier mix, and a Sheltie). Everyone has a very large time! We stop every 3 hours or so, mostly to let the dogs check their "pee-mail"...so it's not too bad. Ends up being around 24 hours drive time. We'll overnight someplace, I imagine. This should be a LOT more comfy than trying to sleep a few hours in the minivan in a rest area.
