Couple travels the country with goat

Cate and Chad Battles decided it was time to hit the road and see what our beautiful country has to offer. They decked out their Airstream trailer and packed their belongings, including one big passenger: their goat!

Frankie joined his mom and dad, and they all set out on a big adventure. The family also brought along their 12-year-old dog, Maggie. They've been on the road for the past year in their vintage trailer and seem to be having the best time. Cate Battles has been sharing highlights from their trip on her blog and Instagram page. The party of four has visited 28 states and two countries.

The furry companions have been enjoying nature and naptime together. Maggie’s owners describe her as “easygoing,” while Frankie’s more of a “diva.” The couple said their biggest challenge to being on the road with their animals is the lack of pet-sitters. That means where they go, their pets go. “We take them to bars, funky roadside attractions, and all sorts of points of interest.”
