The last three days have been a blur of roads and one night stops. We started on Friday from Coarsegold, CA and around 750 miles later, we are now in Tucson, AZ. Most of the time we only did 55 mph, so it took us a lot longer than most people traveling by cars.

But, he wasn't quite done. I had to wait for him to finish using the sandbox too. Every time I headed up to the front, he would start crying. I waited while he climbed into the box, watching me all the while. "Don't leave!" Once he was done, off he went to his favorite spot in the bedroom quite content.

About an hour on that road and Max came to the front crying and drooling. He had this look - "Make it stop!" Poor baby, I have never seen a green cat before and I hope never to see him look this way ever again. Fortunately for him, we were able to pull off the road for a long lunch. Unfortunately, we still had another 27 miles to go on this road and we could not zip through it.

Both cats did a lot better during the third day of traveling after a long night's sleep and a smoother, not to mention, shorter drive to our destination. Everyone had a turn outdoors once we were settled and they are looking a lot more relaxed this morning. Our cats really amaze us at times - to have both of them come to the front and actually tell us that they were not doing well instead of hiding in the back and suffering.

It is nice to be back in Tucson, back to blue skies, desert settings of mountains and cacti, with plenty of hot dry weather. Unlike California's tinderbox, Tucson is very green right now. This is a very nice change from the cold and wet weather along the coast. I enjoyed the heavy mists and overcast days, but I feel like we never had a summer. Now we are finally getting some nice summer weather....yep, just in time for winter.
