    I'm thinking of hitting the road with the wife and daughter, but no plans on where or when we'll stop (not even where we're going). Only thing is, daughter refuses to go without her chihuahua.

    Are most hotels open to pets now, or will we have trouble finding places that allow her to stay in the room with my daughter?

    Thanks GC!

    I have looked at a couple of the on-line sites, and they leave you with the impression that its not that big of a deal these days, but I just wanted to get a feel for it from people who might have traveled with pets recently, because the point of this trip is that we don't know where we're going, where we're staying, what we're doing, or when we're coming home.

    With that in mind, it would suck to get caught in the snow, at 10pm, looking for a hotel that would take an 8# dog, while listening to my wife tell me what an idiot I am :)

    If you don't get called an idiot at least 4 times (twice from wife, and twice from daughter) during that trip, mostly just for breathing and driving, you've done something right. :thup:

    Just to clarify, in order:

    1. Daughter
    2. Dog
    3. Wife
    4. Mini 14 :)

    Although I did put the foot down and said "we're going somewhere, we're getting snowed in, and the rest is up to ya'll." I'm an early riser, so I'll be gone before sunrise, get my fishing in, then be back before they wake.......just in time to take them shopping for the rest of the day :)

    I won't make it past the mailbox. Likely won't even have the car packed before that happens :)

    If you have a GPS, you'll be able to do a hotel search while on the road. Use the phone number to call ahead. We've done it and it's a lifesaver.

    Good luck.

    You could always just smuggle the critter in. It will be crated right? No pee pee on the carpet.
