Chiva and I are gathering needed gear and conditioning ourselves in preparation for the trek. We plan to leave Seattle in early March when it is a little warmer. Please let me know if you are interested in meeting up during the West Coast leg.

This is a huge undertaking. We will be sad to see Chiva and Dave leave Seattle. More so Chiva, but Dave is okay too. Good luck you two!

Thanks to all of David and Chiva's friends who have encouraged them in their vision! And if you have not visited a Seattle dog park, you are missing out!

This is such a beautiful trek! I look forward to keeping up with your blog. I'm a friend of Pam of Heather Kirby. Please know that when you pass through Austin (home of many excellent dog parks!) that you have a free place to stay. I recommend that you try to hit Austin when it is NOT summer, but there are spring fed waters to cool off in if it must be summertime:) Connie

WOW, WHAT A NEAT THING TO DO!!!! I'm so jealous. I've just started working my dogs on running and getting them ready for hikes. What an inspiration! Someday, maybe I can do something like this as well.
