Overview

From September 23 - October 19, 2004,Vicki Cain embarked on an arduous 10,000-mile road trip across America that retraced John Steinbeck's journey from his best-selling book, "Travels with Charley: In Search of America." She was curious to see how this vast country had changed since Steinbeck traveled it back in 1960. To keep her company, Vicki took along her beautiful, fluffy, other-dog-hating, personality-plus, bleu-merle Australian shepherd, Judy.

Together Vicki and Judy braved mechanical failure, ate awesome BBQ, missed the Queen Mary 2, struggled with poor cell reception, locked themselves in a van, found God, encountered political protesters, bought jewelry, witnessed the wide-spread destruction of Hurricane Ivan, uncovered this country's racist past, sniffed some suspicious-smelling canines, straddled the Continental Divide, climbed every mountain, forded every stream, and succeeded where Steinbeck failed.

This is their story. And they're sticking to it.
