No vacation would be complete without mentioning DADDY’S OBSESSION WITH ICE! He makes it every day in our tiny AIRSTREAM freezer, but that isn’t enough to take care of our ICE NEEDS for the cooler that holds the cold drinks and other assorted items… so Daddy is CONSTANTLY either BUYING ice, or LOOKING for ice. Today we passed a neat little building whose sole purpose is to MAKE ICE. Daddy was soooo excited! And we were excited FOR HIM!!! We could all relax for a few days. We now had enough ice to get us through the last few days of our trip. WHEW! It’s funny the things that can cause a vacation to collapse. ????
Be safeMillie and family. Now it looks like Dorien is headed your way. Prayers for all in its path. Maybe you need to stay in the Airstream away from the water . Love and kisses. Be safe
Thank you… we are headed home tomorrow to get the house ready for the storm and we will be ready to leave if we have to. It’s hard to tell what path the storm is going to take… we pray it will spare everyone and hook out to sea! ????????
Yay!!!! Ice!!! Daddy should make everybody slushees! Travel safely!!!!
Good idea… we will tell him! ???
Sounds like a great idea to round out the end of your trip.
Mary….That’s a Good idea .
I’ll have one.
Be safe all.
Lolololol yes… he can make those!!!
He has an ICE FIXATION! Lol
We have a kiosk just like that in Dade City, FL. My dad is obsessed with ice as well!
Lololololol Daddy loves his ice!
I guess pulling over for what Daddy wants is perfectly reasonable!!????
You got that right! He whipped that truck in so fast!!! ???
I know that guy in the picture he’s the guy with the HAREM of the cutest girls and one stunning mommy.
So an obsession with ice. Oh well it good be worse. Millie.
I hope he makes creative drinks for mommy and you girls.
Have a wonderful day !!!
I remember about daddy and his ice. Glad you will have enough for the trip home. Safe travels and also stay safe from Dorian!
Thank you so much. ??
Hugs Kiss Kiss safe travels to your home ????
Thank you sweet Josephine. ?❤️?
So glad you all have enough ice now, little Millie!!! Stay safe from Dorian! Hugs and kisses to you and your sisters!!! ????
Thank you… we are watching the weather channel very closely! ??
It is kind of funny what the daddies obsess over! So glad y’all have enough ice to get home. Be careful on your drive. I hope you all will be safe from the storm. I will be praying for you all to make it home safely! ???
Yes… Daddy’s are funny! We are driving home tomorrow and will start preparing for the storm. Hopefully it will blow away from everyone! ?❤️??
I think Daddy has enough ice there to turn the Yorkie Express into an igloo. 🙂
Praying for you all to stay safe. TONS OF HUGS AND LUVS.
Tell your daddy he needs a machine like that to take home! Safe travels home. We are praying the hurricane turns and goes away!
I know!!! We could just pull it behind us and he could make extra money on our trips by SELLING ICE to the other campers!!! ???
Millie please be safe! I’m saying prayers Dorian stays out to sea. By the way I love Ice.
Thank you… we are driving home tomorrow and will get the house ready for the storm… I hope it turns out to sea and spares everyone any damage! ??????
Millie that would be a good idea for daddy to have his own machine .
To sell all around . Y’all be safe traveling back home tomorrow. Stay safe getting your house ready.
I am going to suggest it to him. It will also FREE UP HALF the freezer space in our tiny freezer, that right now is dedicated to MAKING HIS ICE!!! ???
That’s a BIG bag of ice!!!! Is he hiring movers to get it into the Airstream? lol. Praying you all stay safe and the storm goes away and none are hurt. Thanks again for sharing your adventures with us.! Hugs and Love….
That isn’t ice next to him… lolololol that is a concrete pole covered in ICE BAGS so people don’t hit them with their cars!!! I guess people get really excited pulling up to the building to BUY ALL THEIR ICE!!! ??? But he did buy 20 pounds of it… and we only need ice for ONE DAY! We are leaving in the morning… SHEESH!
Well Daddy needs to stock up on ice because there is going to be an ICE SHORTAGE when you get closer home for everyone preparing for the storm! who knows where this crazy storm is going to go! I’m thinking it may hit Pennsylvania next I’m thinking I should get my storm kit ready just in case! LOL I never saw such uncertain predictions! smh My friends cancelled their trip planned for a cruise leaving from Florida they had planned for 9 months…. and they just left to go to Cancun instead. It’s really crazy!
I know! They don’t even know WHERE it will hit right now!!! It is really hard to prepare for this!!! Just be safe!!! ??
AWE HOW GREAT THAT ICE MACHINE IS. GLAD YOU HAVE PLENTY OF ICE FOR YOUR WAY HOME. I’VE NEVER SEEN ONE OF THOSE TIL NOW. NEAT MACHINE..
I HAVE LOVED YOUR TRIP AND ALL YOU HAVE TOLD US OF. THAANK YOU SO MUCH. TAKE CARE. BE SAFE. YOUR LITTLE ONES ARE SO VERY PRECIOUS AND I LOVE PETS…
We have loved reading your comments and you added so much enjoyment to our trip by just coming along with us!!! ??
Love the ice story. When my family trailered, it was always a big deal to find block ice for our tiny icebox in our trailer. We didn’t have a modern one.
Stay safe with Dorian. I thought of you when I heard it might be headed for the Carolinas.
We will drive home tomorrow and start getting things ready at home. In the meantime, we are praying that everyone stays safe! ????

Thank you so much!!! We are heading home tomorrow. ??
Free ice! Wow! Glad Daddy has enough ice to finish out your trip! You may run into that nasty storm Dorian! Be safe! Looks like Florida dodged the bullet, for now!
We are headed home tomorrow to prepare for Dorian. I hope that all of our friends stay safe. ??
I’m keeping you all in my prayers that your area is spared from Dorian. Praying for all affected. I’m glad Daddy got some ice. I remember from other trips you’ve shared he does like plenty of ice. I really can’t blame him. It’s a lot easier for me to drink Water or tea with plenty of ice.
We are always dealing with ICE ISSUES! If the hurricane knocks out our power at home, then Daddy is going to be WITHOUT ICE FOR DAYS! ?
Enjoy your last few days and be safe! What a wonderful 2 months I’ve enjoyed with you ????
Thank you so much… we are enjoying the time with our family. ?❤️?
Well ice is critical. You know there are some beverages that are not the same without being iced or poured over ice. Lol
Well, that’s what Daddy says! ???
Yay Daddy ?
Yes Millie LaRue Ice is Definitely a must have in my World. You can’t have drinks or Furbaby water without that Beautiful Ice.
That is sooo true. ?❤️??
Millie and crew….we have those ice machines all over Oklahoma. I am kinda like Daddy….I only drink water, but I must have ice and sometimes lemon in it. Safe J ournies in the morning…..think maybe this hurry-cane is trying to tell you you need to vacation earlier?? Seems like last time you had to hide out in Tennesse a few days because mother nature was mad at your house!!! Just stay safe….love you guys and kiss kiss!!!!
I onow!!!! We did have a hurricane to deal with on our last trip!!!! ?
Did he just purchase that TOWER OF ICE??? lololol
Lololololol noooo… that is a concrete pole wrapped in ice bags… so people don’t run into the ICE BUILDING in their EXCITEMENT to buy all that ice!!! I guess they have had issues with too many zealous ice buyers!!! ???
THANK YOU FOR TAKING ME ON YOUR TWO-MONTH ROAD TRIP. THE THREE OF US HAVE ALL OF YOU IN OUR PRAYERS AS YOU TRAVEL AND THAT ALL WILL BE WELL WHEN YOU GET HOME.
Thank you for coming along with us this summer! We have really enjoyed your comments and my parents are looking forward to
Seeing y’all in January! ??
I have a thing for ice, also. Dialysis allows one liter of fluid per day so I keep cups of ice in my bubba
Lololol it looks like there are lots of others out there who LOVE ICE! ?❤️?
Well ice is important when you are traveling and especially for you Millie and your sisters to have nice cold water to drink. I am glad to see you all home after your long adventure. I know you are coming home not knowing exactly what Dorain is going to do. Be save.
We will be getting home late tonight… to get our house ready for the storm and prepare to evacuate if necessary.
Yah for Daddy!!!! Always looking after his girls!!!! Safe travels!
oh my gosh I see they are calling for mandatory evacuations in your area and they are planning to make all the highways going north and no routes south! I hope you are home and can prepare to leave safely.
We are preparing to leave but are waiting until tomorrow morning to see if the path gets any better before we leave. ??
Millie hope that you and your family escaped the storm without to much ado. We had a doggie many years ago that thought you could not drink water without ice in it. We put some in a bucket of water when we were outside playing ball and had a good laugh at him “chasing” the ice around in the bucket trying to get it out so he could go crunch crunch crunch. We are waiting the tales of your next trip. Stay safe.
I think that my Daddy is like your old doggie… because he has to put ice in EVERYTHING!!! ???
