Our daily schedule on the road

After five road trips with my dogs, I finally realized that there is no reason to lug along a library of books to read.  The reason is that there is little time to read, as the below daily scedule shows.  If I am luck, I can get in 30 minutes of reading a day, unless I am staying at a camp for more than one day, which happens sometimes.  I also decided that I would not take along any e-books this time, mainly becasue they consume valuable iPad battery time, and I would rather page through a hard-cover book anyway.
