May 18, 2012

This previous weekend I blasted up to NorCal and picked up my new dog. Being 4 months old, he wouldn't be trusted on the fine luxurious leather, so a canine transport crate had to be used. Of course our Explorer, Quest or new Impreza would have been better for this, but we had to make due.

Problem was that the crate wouldn't fit through the rear doors, so a little tinkering had to be done.

Step 1: Dissembled crate into two halves and removed door.

Mission Accomplished.

On a side note - the total milage for the trip - 940 miles with a 27.492 overall MPG.
