Please if i can pick your brains ! how would folks here go about hitching with a dog he's 80 lbs and one pack, 40-50 lbs, I have 0 degree sleep gear+ pad. gonna tarp it. want to go east from the west stay south. doggo is well trained and super friendly and loves cars but soft ... trains are out. we have time to travel and are in good shape we can walk far but food is a deal as is water we drink 3-5 gallon a day I carry 1.25. I can pack him a weeks worth of food OK but I only have a days worth of food for me at best. ( I would eat his if I was in a bad way but let's not drag on that) so kinda have to stick close city's and bigger towns to buy food get money ext. wanting to leaving from Phoenix or tucson and get to Florida while seeing some cool shit. maybe the jambo. anyone with ideas on the route or to just help me get my feet wet please contact me here .
