etc. and my own sleeping stuff. She's got a nice LQ
trailer with plenty of room.

We share paying at the gas stops. Rather than divvy it
in half at each stop, we take turns paying. I catch
one stop, she gets the next one. We pay for our own
meals, and usually end up sharing our food at the

extra feed, etc but my horse eats a LOT and requires
extraordinary amounts of hay (usually 3/4 - 1 bale
