Merritt Motel... the cats meow

Merritt Motel... the cats meow
We are finally on the road

We are finally on the road

A few weeks of packing led up to the day where we set of with a U-Haul headed for Vancouver and Victoria to drop off stuff for Mik and Emma. The cats were in the back seat for their first ever car trip. If fact we have never taken them anywhere.

Our belongs are now in one of six spots; in storage, at Mik's, at Emma's, with Value Village (donated), sold to friendly folks at our garage sale or at the dump. Only a few essential items are left at the house. It has been a huge job sorting through it all and feelings are mixed at this point. It is quite a relief to get rid of so much stuff which has piled up over the years and at the same time we wonder if we will miss some of it along the way. 

Back to the road. We booked a pet friendly motel in Merritt to break up the trip. I am not sure how pet friendly it was. The cats were petrified and we had to lift up the bed in the morning in order to get them out. We wanted an adventure. Here it was in the heart of Merritt BC.
