Whats up y'all? I've been wanting to adopt an animal companion for a while now, but I mainly get around on a motorcycle and I want a critter I can bring out and about me (I don't want to adopt a critter just to leave it cooped up in my RV all the time). I've been reading lots of encouraging posts about the quality of rats as traveling pets, but the question of how well they ride seems a little unprecedented, so, has anyone ever attempted to bring their rodent companion on a motorcycle trip? How did it turn out? To those of you who have experience with rats, could you see them being acclimated to motorcycling with enough patience and training?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
