Exactly why I don't worry about drinking and driving. I'm a responsible drunk and refuse to follow rules set up for people who can't handle alcohol.

Lacking an emoticon - it's hard to tell if this was serious or not.

If this is irony to make a point: well played.

If a serious statement.... uhm..... would you be so kind as to post times and locations of your driving plans?

I guess I should have added one of those silly guys to my post. I get them confused. I'm not sure who is Bob, Tom or Mr sarcasm.

Almost anyone would do - I was slightly panicked to imagine you might be serious!

As a totally disabled veteran with disabled license plates I take issue with your remark. Too many times I have had to hike in from the outer regions of parking lots at the big box stores and other places because of 400 pounders and others that talk some doctor into giving them a handicap permit.

I would hope that you were joking and not *really* proposing that someone actually do that.

I think it's pretty clear he was being sarcastic, so no need to take offense.

Thank you for your service.

I traveled extensively with three dogs for years. I was always up front that I had three dogs at places with two dog restrictions. Our third dog though was a low energy small pekingnese. So it was like not having a dog. They were more interested if I had aggressive breeds than the number.
I always assured the RV park my animals were well mannered and disciplined. You may be surprised how accomodating the RV parks are. Shelties are talkers (I had one). If you need to leave the RV take the trouble maker with you if possible.
Welcome to the Airstream family and happy travels.

All our pups are crate trained, and understand that they are safe in their crate. That minimizes the noisy reactions to traffic in the area.

In any situation where we might have to leave dogs in the AS, we make sure it is well ventilated and comfortable. We never leave them for longer than time to eat a meal. If the weather is warm (over 80 degrees), we do not ever leave them in the AS--they stay in the TV, with an adult present, the AC on, and we eat takeout...only safe way to handle the situation.

And yes, the mob is in their secured crates in the vehicle for safety.

All of them are either chipped or tagged, always on a leash outside, and under close adult supervision outside the vehicles. The risks of a loose dog are well understood by us when we travel.

Dog owners that do not comply with campground or local leash laws, IMHO, should NOT be dog owners...

Emoticons are so easy to use here, and allow one to be so very expressive and clear about ones feelings , that I miss them with regular email and feel flat and uninteresting.

In the Apple/Mac universe, emoticons are available for email and text, even on my laptop (although this last venue makes it more difficult to insert them compared to the iPhone and iPad).

Sarcasm in words alone can be open to a wide divergence of interpretation.



PS -- Getting kind of off-topic here, so let me say that in the NE we are having a real 3-dog storm!

Called and the answer was "no". So, we'll need to do more research to find places we can take our 3 dogs.

Bummer.

Sorry to hear that. I don't know where you were planning on staying, but here's just one example of several to pull from that area - this one's in Ithaca - that allow dogs without any published limits on the number of dogs.

http://www.sprucerow.com

I don't know them and haven't stayed there - also don't know what you enjoy or don't at campgrounds - so this may or may not fit your bill...but there are options.

I also wonder if Harvest Hosts has any arrangements in the Finger Lakes area wineries and if so whether dogs are ok for those too?

Good luck!
