The Wag ‘n Woof mobile will be hitting the road early Saturday morning, for a mini-vacation to Myrtle Beach where we’ll be attending the BlogPaws pet blogger conference next week!
“Auntie” Sheryl, who also joined me for a road trip to Nashville two years ago, will be joining me again. We are both very excited. Our approximately 17 hour, 1,000 mile trip will take us through Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina. We’re taking a bit of a roundabout route on the way down, to avoid some of the bigger cities. We hope to get a majority of the trip done in the first day, so we can relax and take our time a bit more on the second, maybe even stop to see some sights if we pass anything interesting.
Our stay in Myrtle Beach will start on Sunday night where we’ll be staying at the conference motel, the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel. It’s within sight of the ocean, so it will hopefully only be a short walk to get to the beach!
Many bloggers bring their pets to this conference, but my crew just aren’t road-trippers, so they’ll be staying home with the Dadz.
I’m going to miss these snuggles…..
…..and this sweet face for weekend morning toy time.
Samantha – I mean, Dad – will be taking care of the furry and now feathery crew!
As we join the Thankful Thursday blog hop today, I am especially thankful for a few things:
- The opportunity from BlogPaws to attend a conference where I can learn and grow as a blogger. With our current situation I especially need to learn ways I can make more money doing this. On top of the educational opportunities, I’ll get to see old blog friends I met at the previous conference, and I’ll also be meeting some new ones in person that weren’t at that one! I can’t wait.
- We probably wouldn’t make a trip like this if not for the conference. We’ve had some tough times lately, and we really need this getaway.
- My great friend who is willing to do this with me for a second time! We had so much fun going to Nashville, so we are going to have a blast again.
- A loving hubby who is willing to stay home and hold down the farm!
I’ll schedule some posts for the blog next week before I go, and will hopefully have a couple updates from the road as well. You can also follow us on social media to see what we’re up to (links to follow in the upper right corner above). Bloggers, be sure to comment below if you’re attending, so I can be sure to look for you!
