You definitely need to write a book on your travels and your menagerie.

Where in North Carolina are you located?
that's why I said "more,more,more!"
they're making a lifetime of memories that no one can take away from them!
not even the government

I'm in Statesville, about 45 minutes north of Charlotte. I do hope to write a book one day, but for now there's just a half-finished blog. All of our electronics died along the way, so we had to stop posting when we got to Seattle. My Kindle went in the dog water bowl, I smashed the camera into a boulder I tripped over, the iPod landed in a puddle, the inverter exploded when Dad plugged it in to the battery backwards in the dark... and so on and so forth....

I would suggest a #2 pencil & real parchment as a durable, low-tech, all-weather alternative...but writing on goatskin might not go down well with some of your passengers.

Talked to Canada and the USDA today about bringing a goat through the country to get to Alaska. There are lots of permits, those alone costing at least $400, and some tests and certificates I have to have done, plus she has to be officially sealed by the USDA for the duration of our time in Canada. Luckily she has her own bedroom so she'll be ok even if it takes us two weeks to get through.

Now it's just a matter of raising the money to get her there! We're hoping to finish the conversion and be on the road in 2-3 weeks.

Might be cheaper just to adopt her and file for a passport.

The past couple of days we've been working on the sink cabinet, the couch, and the beds. I like to work third shift since it's 75 degrees instead of 100. I just finished framing the beds and couch, and we started working on them at 10:30 last night. Dan pooped out on me a couple hours ago, so I did the second bed all by myself. It's only about half an inch crooked.

The sink is a massive two basin cast iron beast with attached drying area. It weight about 70 lbs. and is 22"Wx44"Lx10"D. And it's blood orange colored! I wanted something big enough to do dishes in and maybe wash the cats. Stock kitchen cabinets aren't long enough to put it in, and stock countertops are too wide for what little space we have, so we built one that is the exact dimensions of the sink, which sits on top because it has a lip all the way around. The front will have two bifold louvre doors made from chopping up a pair I have. The other two I have will be the doors for the bedroom walls.

I'll try to get some pics up later, but for now... SLEEP!
