Back to normal....

I had a great weekend.  We went to.....
That's in Minnesota.
It was a nice drive and I helped Mike with the directions.
This is Mike and I with Billy the Bus.
I don't think I ever formally introduced him.
(Sorry, Billy)

The lake was great....
But I like....
Yep, football better than swimming.

And while I was enjoying the great outdoors Oz was....
SLEEPING! 
With MY duck!

While we were camping there was bad weather.  Tornado warnings and thunderstorms.  We just got thunderstorms.  They sure sound different when you are not in your house.  I just jumped in bed with Beth....so SHE wouldn't be scared....

On the way home I tried to get Mike to stop at the Casino
but he said NO GAMBLING! 
(I was sure I could win a lot of cash!)
So I just waved as we went by....

I was really tired so Oz had to
take over giving Mike directions.
She did pretty good for a 12 week old kitty!
Anyway, that was my weekend. 

I think we get to go again really soon! 
I can't wait to see where we land!

Later -- Remington -- The Traveling Newf -- out!

We try to help the hu-dad navigate our S-RV (er, Siberian Recreational Vehicle), but our real job, apparently, is to protect the refrigerator because we are in our "wall of crates" right across from it. Seems like he would like all of our help up there, but we are ok protecting the food.

Such a cool way to travel. A home on wheels!

You, Oz, Beth, Mike and Billy make quite a team! Looks like a lot of fun.

You and Ozabella roll in style, huh?
Hugs and belly rubs,

Madi and Mom said...

OH my Dogs and Cats Rem,
Billy the bus is quite handsome!!! Looks like there is plenty of room for everyone too. Mike is a very good driver to handle Billy.

The lake is beautiful and you had such a nice field to play in. We look forward to more pictures.

Oz has learned so much from you in her 12 weeks.
You are a great teacher.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Hello Billy the Bus... I am soooo glad to meet you. You are really hooooge, did you know that? I'll bet that you felt like you were in good paws what with Remington and Ozabella doing the navigation and Mike serving as pilot. You certainly did take them to a neat place. It is prolly a good thingy that Mike said no to the casino. Remington would have had to stuff you like a turkey, with all of his winnings.

Gus said...

Billy the bus is handsome, it would be like never having to listen to muzzer cursing while she "negotiates" prices for hotel rooms again! And we love the pictures of Ozziebell with "your" duck.

How do you do Billy, it is very nice to meet you.
We are in awe of your gigantic Billy Bus Remington. Mum says she has never seen such a big motorhome, it must be like a house inside.
Glad you enjoyed your weekend, we see Oz is cranking up the cuteness factor there with your duck.
Wags, Dip Bridge and Elliot xx

Howdy Billy Bus! You are one pawsome vehicle!

PeeS....do you really thinks Ozabella be old enough to help navigate?? What age do kittehs get their learners permit?

MadameMoiselle said...

Billly must be the pet mobile.. You have some awesome ride there Remmington..

Oz is a impressive little fella.. Good to know he got Mike where you guys were headed !

Where is the next stop ? Can't wait to see more..

Heather and Ellie said...

Well, hello Billy. It's nice to meet you. I hope you're well and that the thunderstorms didn't bother you?..... That's good.

I can see it now...."Remington the Gambling Newf". I bet you could win a lot of money (and how could the casino owners resist your hat) but perhaps it was better you stayed with Billy so he wouldn't be lonely.

Stella said...

Today another big storm is predicted for our area. I wonder if it will get as far as your town, Rem?

I would just as soon see Fall and Winter come, as to deal with the storms and heat!

Kisses (especially to Ozabella!)
Stella

Zona said...

Glad you had so much fun!! I need to come up with a cool name for our home on wheels... though ours isn't as cool as yours. Ours has to be pulled behind us!

Of course Oz did well with the directions - you taught her!!

Wags,
Zona

Nubbin' Tails said...

brooke said...

FUN! man Remi you make an excellent navigator. You look quite professional with your hat on too!

Sue said...

It looks like it was a fun trip, but aren't you supposed to love the water? We love the water, except Tsar and Sky and we thought our Newf cousins were even more crazy about it than us.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

That looks like such a cool adventure. And it's so much fun that Oz can come along too!

Woofs,

JC said...

Looks like you had a great time on your weekend adventure. No wonder you were tired.

By the way, I'd love to get a mini traveling home myself ... Mr. Boatman is still saying no to that one but tent camping just isn't fun like it used to be ... with me being older ... did I really say that.

Rebecca and Daisy Mae said...

Looks like you had a good trip Remington! That was sure nice of you and Ozabella to help your Dad with the directions.

bermudabluez said...

You guys have such fun!!!! We stayed at Mystic Lake Casino when we were there last year...can you ask Beth if she can recommend any other nice places out there for us to see?

Hi Remington! We love Minnesota! Simba hasn't been there yet, but I have some relatives that Own part of Ottertail lake and we always have so much fun. Next time we go, Simba is coming! I trust that if you had fun, buddy, that Simba would love it too!

MISTAYA said...

That was really brave of you Remington, to be in bed with Beth so SHE wouldn't be afraid. Very smart move on your part!!! Hugs and wags, Mistaya

Ginny said...

Well, Rem, your adventure sounds kind of scary to me. But I bet you got lots of WALKS in that town!! I love the pic of you running with the ball. And yes, I have never seen a picture of Billy!! Billy is MUCH bigger than I had imagined!! and even a roof, too cool!!!! You are one lucky Newf!

JackDaddy said...

Hmmmmm, something has happened to that duck. I don't think it has a head any more! Did Oz do that???

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Remington, you really look great in Billy the Bus!! We are happy that you and Oz helped to nagivate! BTW...you always look so handsome in hats! We love your travels. That is really pawsome!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Junior and Orion said...

Nice to meet you Billy! Wish we had a bus like you!

Looks like everyone enjoyed the trip!

The Two Country Poodles & Uncle Puppy said...

Pawsome trip Remmington! Looks like Oz is a better navigation system than a tom tom. BOL BOL BOL!

Sagira said...

Sure looks like a fun trip. I just love Oz traveling around as well. You don't hear much about cats traveling. :)

Maggie and Mitch said...

We bet thunderstorms sound pretty scarey in Billy the Bus, huh, Remington? Thank goodness Beth had you to protect her!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Billy is a VERY cool looking bus! Plenty of room for all. Thanks for protecting Beth and for sharing direction responsibility with OZ (I bet she was thrilled to help)! Billy is such an amazing vehicle that I am surprised that he doesn't have a GPS System that allows EVERYONE to sit in the back and enjoy the scenery while it drives itself! :)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow Remington what a trip! We are glad that you got to have so much fun, and we hope that Beth wasn't too scared by the storms - we are sure you took good care of her! And it is great that you were there to help out with navigating, and it looks like you have taught Oz how to do it really well! And we bet that Oz slept with your duck because you were out playing football and she missed you!

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Hi Remington and Oz,
That is just so cool to have a bus to take you fun places!!! You are living my dream!!! Enjoy the thrill of the road!!!
We will be back home eating our fresh vegs from the garden. Thats a dream too!!!
XXOO, Bambi & Fern

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Billy the Bus, compare with my mom's compact car, you're a handsome and powerful house-on-wheels.
Please let me know next time you're on the road again Rem, I'll do anything for you just to have my paws touching that luxurios speed house.
Cheers!

Dory and the Mama said...

Ina in Alaska said...

Wow that bus is spectacular! and Oz is just adorable, I enjoyed her sleeping with your duck. How nice of you to share. Glad you had a wonderful road trip, the accomodations look very cozy. Tornado warnings are very frightening, I am so glad all was ok... we took a big road trip in 2006 and stopped at a hotel in Wisconsin (I think) and there were scary tornado warnings on TV....we were not affected but it was very scary! xoxoxo

Bella the Westie said...

Lovely to hear about your holiday :)
How nice of you to help Mike!
He would have been lost without you.

Hello, Billy the bus!

Love, Bella.
