Getting Ready for Our Big Return Trip

It is hard to believe that is has been nearly 3 months since Rilley's surgery. Part of the treatment protocol is to return to the University of Minnesota and see Dr. Pluhar for a check up and have a follow up MRI done.

Let's hope we won't need the four wheel drive!
As such we are busy preparing for the 16 hour trek to Minnesota next week. We are planning a bit smarter this time though and have decided that we are not taking any food in the Jeep with us at all. We thought we had outsmarted the pooch last time by having some snacks hidden within a Rubbermaid container. We soon found out that there is no out smarting our beagle boy after he dove into the back of the car and managed to get the lid off the container and into our stash of candy bars.  We will also have to stick to regular coffee, we also found out the last time that Rilley has a penchant for Starbucks specialty coffees and will get in our faces when he smells it.  Not a good thing when you're trying to drive!

Anyway, we know that Minneapolis can get hit pretty hard with snow, so we will be packing our own road survival kit just in case.  Here's hoping that we won't need it, so everyone please send warm thoughts to keep the snow away!
