In a World
Where Big Dogs Wander
Tired of all the bad news, sad news, doom and gloom?
Escape with Jerry Lee, Holly, and me and see Great Britain from a cheeky point of
Have you ever wished you could take off and travel for a few years?
Do you have a passion for all things British and want to learn more?
Would you love to bring your dog with you on your dream road trip?
If you said yes to any of these, then hop up into the Jeep and enjoy the ride...
I found myself out of a job, living in the house I'd just bought but couldn't afford anymore, with my two very large German Shepherds who'd just arrived from America.
Great. Now what was I supposed to do?
I know what—we'll buy a caravan and hit the road! Except my little Vauxhall Astra couldn't tow a pony cart, let alone a caravan.
Terrific. Now I have to get a tow car as well. Let's see... what's big enough for the dogs and also has enough get up and go for towing?
I know what—I'll buy a Jeep. Perfect for the job, right? (Not so much.)
And so I schlepped from London to Leeds on the train to check out a used car... and I struggled home in The Jeep of Death. What could possibly go wrong?
Yeah, well, pretty much everything. The first six weeks of what turned into three years on the road were a serious shakedown cruise, and the first book of the Britain Unleashed series is about our adventures as we got the hang of caravan life.
We'd love to have you come along for the ride as we travel from London to the northern tip of Britain (hint: Muckle Flugga) while we learn caravanning on the fly, deal with the Jeep's many problems (I couldn't make this stuff up), and take my two rescued shelter dogs to places we'd never have dreamed they'd get to go.
Ready? Then we'll see you on the road!
Gina, Jerry Lee, and Holly
P.S. Wondering why it's called "Britain Unleashed"? Check out the Flashback in Post #6. Who needs a leash?
The true story of one girl,
her two German Shepherds,
and their three years together*
roaming the Great British roads...
*And Mom, too, for the first six weeks. We could never have done it without her!
