    The first time my young dog saw snow was on a driving trip last winter. We took him along with us and when we stopped in Salt Lake City there happened to be snow and ice — lots of it. We let him out to go pee and he was confused and excited. Within 15 seconds of touching snow he has slipped and broken his leg it two places. It was tragic. Be careful with Chuck! And enjoy your roadtrip!

    Great mix. Bon Voyage, and we’ll catch you on the flip side.

    Does Chuck know he can legally have several wives in Utah? Have a happy, safe trip.

    I’m strangely honored that you’ll be stopping in Seattle on your journey from one home to the next…our lovely rainy town gets an actual visitation by Dooce, hubby, and Chuck, in person. If it isn’t raining while you’re here, make sure you look at the cloud formations in the sky, and watch the light on the buildings downtown. Phenomenal, and why I fell in love with this city.

    I want to hug all of you, really.

    my first thought is that i feel really, really old now. thanks a lot. i think i’ve heard of two artists on your list. not sure. i really enjoy your site, dooce, but now i’m really depressed. and somebody the other day said something about middle-aged something or others. ouch.

    have a good trip. and best wishes on the next chapter of your lives. wow. that DID sound like an “older” person.

    Hey, Ms. Lauren
    What’s a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?
    Come here often?
    Can I buy you a drink?
    Do you want to see my Elliot Smith impression?

    Speaking of dogs in different places, the first time I took my Labrador to Lake Tahoe we hiked all the way down to the water on the east side. As soon as she saw the water she jumped off the rocks into it. I’m telling you that water was near freezing. You could see the shock on her face. When she tried to get out she couldn’t because the boulders were too high. I watched her for a while to see if she could find a way out. Finally when she started going under I climbed down and grabbed her by the scruff of her neck and back and pulled her out. Goofy dog!

    Having moved thrice in the past two years (once abroad even), I have one piece of advice: take all you can from the place you are leaving, and try not to leave yourself behind.

  • Michele

    I hope you find the kind of life you are looking for in Utah :) Your home will always be where Jon and Chuck are but I give you credit for having the guts to make yourself a better life and for moving back for bigger reasons than why you left. Great tunes…hope you have a safe trip. xo

    P.S. – Elliot Smith is that deal. On the real tip. When I’m not pumping Ghostface Killah or Bebel, it’s Elliot all the way… “I’m in love/with the world/through the eyes/of a girl…”
