I need some inputs on transporting kids and dogs to the cabin. The dog has been going for plenty of years, but looking for something better. The baby is growing and I don't know the solution yet.
The ride to the cabin is 2 hours. The dog loves to run, but can't go fast enough the entire way. We put him in a kennel on the siglin. Even with it covered and blankets, he seems cold. I'm thinking of building a sturdier, insulated dog box. Anyone do this? Also was thinking with the bumps and little snowfall, that it probably isn't a comfortable ride? Dog has ridden on the front before, but 80lb dog likes to rest his head on your arm (heavy!).
Onto the kid part. Last winter took the baby on a 2-up machine. Baby had his snowsuit, fox hat and all wrapped onto mom, then mom had jacket covering him. By the time we got to the cabin, realized he was plenty warm! Well now the kid is growing, and is squirmy, about 16 months old. How do you guys take your kids to the cabin when they start growing? Under a year, seems they can be strapped in. Over year ??? Two year old + ? Also what do you do for helmets when they start getting bigger? I try to take the kid when it's -10F or warmer (my cutoffs -30) but sometimes weather drops while we're out for the week.
Anyway, anyone offer some help?
