Road Warrior Reporting!

Remington the Road Warrior here!
This was our weekend to hit the road in Billy the Bus!  Mike, Beth, Oz and I were the only ones that went this time.  My other kitty brothers said they just wanted to stay home
'cause it was only for one night.
It was the coolest thing ever.  Oz and I just lounged around, had some treats, listened to some tunes and chilled out while
Mike drove us there!  It was GREAT!
We went to....
That's in North Dakota!
 Bailey and Trevor live there! 
We had so much fun!  We played FOOTBALL! 
  And talked and walked and talked some more! 
Trevor even fed OZ!
I can't wait to go back again!

Then on the way home we drove through....
It's in Minnesota. 
 Last Thursday there were 39 tornadoes sited
in the state of Minnesota. 
 One of them touched down in this town. 
It was called an F4 tornado.  Beth said that was a real bad one. 
 People were busy cleaning up the destruction.
We felt bad for everyone there.
 No lives were lost in that tornado --  that was good.

If you click on the site above you can watch three videos of what happened and even see the tornado.  It shows everyone why you are suppose to take cover when they tell you too! 
Tornadoes are nothing to mess with!
Oz and I rested on the way home! 
I told Beth to get the map out and start planning --
I love being a Road Warrior!

Later -- Remington -- I am a traveling man -- out!

Alien said...

I'm glad you missed those tornadoes. Such sad destruction.

Frankie Furter said...

I know... Beth and Mike say,"Leave the Driving to US." Right???
That is a super road warrior trip you took.
I knew about those tornadoes. I was worried about you. Glad you and Oz and Beth and Mike were safe. I am also glad no two leggers were hurt.

Gus said...

It seems very wise to start this road warrior stuff slowly, with a few short trips to make sure you and Oz have your travellin' legs in order and don't get whoopsie from the motion.

Looks like you made a great choice for the first trip.

Thanks for the tornado videos . . .the storm chaser people really amaze me, out in that mess!

Billy the Bus looks like loads of fun and how fun to be able to take OZ with you (still a bottle baby or just for fun?)

You were only about 45 miles from me! Next time we should have a meet up.

Cheers,
Jo, Stella and ZKhat

You are looking very smart Remington. We are glad you all had a good first trip. We can see you and Oz enjoyed it and also got lots of fussing over.

Oh Remi, that picture of you and Oz resting is just adorable!!!

Thanks for the concern over my tummy. We hope it gets sorted out sooon.~Orion

Ginny said...

Way to go, Rem!! What a good picture story of your trip! Being a new follower, I have not been able to find on your blog who Bailey and Trevor are. But I must say that my very favorite picture is you running with the ball in your mouth! You sure have a good grip on it! I bet you love traveling in such luxury. The tornado vidoes you kindly gave a link to are just plain scary, and your photos of the damage are sad. Rem, when bad weather is coming, do you know way ahead of time? Some animals can predict these things, so I'm wondering if you have E.S.P.? You are a very good dog, but when you read my blog today, you will be horrified to see a very bad dog! I am so glad that you are the sweet boy you are!!

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Oh my Dog! Being a road warrior is tons of fun.
That tornado photo was pretty scary. Oz looks so cute drinking from his bottle.

Wait? You mean your house is on wheels and you get to take it where you go? How did you do that? I got to talk to the tall guy and see if he can put our house on wheels so we can come visit you!

We were in Wahpeton on Saturday afternoon.
Went to WalMart, then over to Landmark nursery in Breck.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

You make me want a Billy the Bus; it looks so cool! Family time is always so special isn't it? And little Oz just feels so safe next to his woofie brother...you are the best, Remington! Tornadoes are horrible and not to be taken lightly, I feel so bad for those people and animals whose lives were turned upside down.

Huffle Mawson said...

Remington, you get to have the best adventures. I can't believe Oz got to go along too!

Sagira said...

Looks like you had a great time with Billy the Bus. Oz with the bottle was SO darn cute!

Your trip looked like so much fun Rem! We really liked your football playing photo. Great shot! The boy hooman feeding Oz was cute too. That torn-A-dooo photo was scary. Yikes. So glad no one was hurt and that you guys didn't have to experience it.
