I agree. They truly are amazing dogs. I've had them spanning more than two decades now.
One of them was on TV last year at a dog show: https://www.nbcsports.com/video/akit...-working-group

Part of the question will be how prepared you are for winter. Are you a Southern Ca person or a Conn. person at heart?
Big difference in general experience level and it can get critical when deciding if you can make it over a pass ahead of a storm or should wait it out. It isn't always whether you can make it but it also matters whether the folks in front know how to keep moving and the guy behind knows how to stop!!
I'm a long way out planning. No real hurry to move. It's just probably going to happen at some point and I'll plan to do it when the weather is favorable.

I'm in the same boat. Planning an eventual move out of California to Arizona. Most of my fish I'm good with giving away or selling, except my archers - and most of my plants I also want to keep. The idea of moving the tanks and livestock is daunting.

Moving aquariums is the worst. Especially when you have 20+ tanks...

Thanks - That's a good article. 3k miles presents a few more challenges, but I like the approach.
