Scotland Bound Hounds

It's no secret that we love road trips.  So, when we saw that George had registered for Bouncing Bertie's Scottish Highlands Adventure, well, our hearts started racing and our tails started thumping and we took a vote and decided to go for it!  We just couldn't resist the allure of those Highland mountains.  We've never traveled outside the States and we figured this was our big opportunity!  Plus, we would love to meet George in the fur.  So, herewith is our official application to join Bouncing Bertie's Scottish Adventure to study rocks!  We're all for expanding our minds . . .

First of all, since this is a geology expedition, here are some examples to show our resume does include some rocky experiences:

Rockin' it in Santa Rosa, Nm

Hikin' the rocks above Taos, NM

Climbing boulders above Taos, NM

Panning for gold in Taos, NM

Um, you might not want us to drive the bus ;)

Did we mention that we dug up these gen-u-wine garnets in Montana?

We can totally handle the weather

And some of us have the clothing for it

Others of us wear our weatherproofing all the time ;)

We have much more, but we've just realized that it's already Friday evening across the Pond so we need to get our application in NOW!  Oh, yeah, did we mention that our Dad is half Scottish? That's gotta count for something.  So, whatta ya say, Bertie?  Can we go on your Scottish Adventure???

Oh BOY is my mom ever S eye Ted about you going on a Scottish Adventure... esp. since Geology is involved. She says to tell you that she is of the Douglas Sept and that she took a Year of Geology in College. It has always been her dream to go to Scotland and walk through a field of blooming heather.
Cat Crap... now she will be dreaming of Lorna Doons and talking silly stuffs all the rest of the day.. and NOT doing what I want her to do.
