Home for the Holidays, Day 30 - Millington, Tennessee

Today marks the second full day of no-internet and minimal cell phone coverage, but hopefully we’ll make it into a town today so I can update the blog and get some more reading material for the drive tomorrow. And at least this way there’s less chance of Star Wars spoilers :)

After the morning routine today, I read a little more of my dog training book. Then I put the theory into practice by teaching Alfie gimme five” and the beginning stages of heel,” interspersed with workout breaks, brushing out Alfie’s fur, and leaving-desensitization.

In the afternoon I took a nap in my hammock with Alfie gamely guarding me from rogue squirrels. After I woke up I felt slightly sick-ish (aches, cough, headache) so we drove into town to fill up the car’s gas and get soup.

We went to bed early in preparation for driving day tomorrow - depending on what time Christian’s up we may try to do the 490 miles in one shot with me taking a turn driving.
