Monday afternoon, Kaz, Courtney, Stitch and Sookie crossed into Alabama on the way to Las Vegas.

Kaz and Courtney passed the Florida border yesterday around 4:30 and rolled into NOLA last night around 7. Along with the dogs, they stayed at a pet-friendly La Quinta Inn – conveniently located only seven blocks from Bourbon Street (crawling – I mean – walking distance if necessary after a night on the town). Although they were sure to sample libations and culinary delights of the French Quarter, their night was easy-going. After dinner at the award-winning Gumbo Shop, they hit Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop where they grabbed a Voodoo, a drink recommended by Kaz and described in his typical fashion as “a grape slushy with some kind of alcohol” then strolled Bourbon Street.

Our traveling duo rose early this morning and, with Sookie and Stitch, strolled down to Café du Monde for mouth-watering beignets.

With 10 hours of driving today, Kaz and Courtney plan to get just past San Antonio before calling it a night. In their latest update, they crossed into Texas today around 4:30. Looks like they’re having a blast!

Monday, Oct. 28, 2013 — Today Kaz begins his journey to Las Vegas, accompanied by Courtney, Sookie and Stitch. And, because Courtney agreed to share their daily adventures through photos and videos, we’re vicariously traveling with them on the 2,217 mile road trip! Check Shepherd Moves daily to learn about their progress.

So that Kaz didn’t have to double-back to the Westside, this morning Jeri picked up Courtney and drove her to Kaz’s place. Sookie made it clear she was ready to hit the road, taking her place in the driver’s seat while Kaz, Courtney and Jeri packed the car. No early bird start for the duo – they hit I-10 just a bit after 10:00 (had to wait for Kaz’s laundry to dry!). Today’s destination: New Orleans, 548 miles away, about an eight drive.

Sookie perches in the driver's seat, eagerly waiting to hit the road.
