    Alabama Hills is just off the 395 on the way to Bishop CA.  BLM land at its best, free but dry camping.  Fabulous views of Mt. Whitney.  The road is off the road to Mt Whitney portal, it is dirt but doable in our 35′ rig.  Stop at the visitor center as you enter Lone Pine which is on your right coming from the south,  they can give you information on Alabama Hills.  Definitely dog friendly we let our dogs run off leash, we only saw about 5 cars go by each day we were there. The bad part, it is HOT in the summer suggest this spot in the winter.  We were there in July and the days were spent in the RV with AC on, the mornings and evenings were heavenly.

    Early morning walk with dogs, Iris is out there

    The RV looks little hidden in the huge rocks.

    The campsite we had is where scenes from Iron Man were filmed. Many movies filmed here, there is a Film Museum to visit near by.

    Mt Whitney…you can see the road up to the portal. BTW Mt Whitney is the tallest mountain in continental US.

     

    Morning coffee and view from the coach…beautiful last day as we head on up 395 toward June Lake….

  • Taking Your Pets With You On A Road Trip?

    Road Trip! When traveling with your pets it is important to take extra precautions to make sure they have a good time too.

    Clear The Air would like to share these tips to keep your pets safe while you enjoy your trip.

    1. Prepare – If your trip isn’t right away, prepare your pets with short trips in the car to get them ready for the big day.

    2. Pack – Bring your pet’s favorite toys and blanket to help calm them on the long trip. Also pack all the supplies you will need for you pet including their food, water, dishes, bedding, leashes, litter boxes, and any medications they need.

    3. ID Please – Don’t forget to bring your pet’s identification. Make sure the identification contains your current contact information and it’s attached to a sturdy collar. This will be helpful in case they do get lost.

    4. Be Safe and Secure – Pets are the safest in a carrier. Bring carriers for your pets to ride in while you are driving and make sure they are secured in your car. Sharp turns and sudden stops can cause your pets and their carriers to fall over and they can get hurt. Make sure the carriers are well ventilated and big enough for them to move around comfortably in.

    5. Take A Break – Be sure to make several stops along the way so pets can get out of the car and go to the bathroom. Make sure pets are wearing their identification and are on a leash for their safety.

    6. Bring Your Pets With You – If you need to stop for a snack, gas, or a meal, always take your pets with you. Don’t ever leave pets in the car even if it’s only going to be a few minutes. If you can’t take pets inside with you, take turns sitting outside with your pets so they are not left alone.

     

     

     

  • Keep Your Pets Safe This 4th of July!

    Posted on July 3rd, 2016

    The 4th of July is full of outdoor activities with your family and pets!

    Clear The Air wants to remind you to keep your pets safe while you enjoy the holiday. Here are some food and water safety tips from the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) to make sure everyone has a fun day.

    Food Safety

    • Never leave alcoholic drinks unattended where pets can reach them. Alcoholic beverages have the potential to poison pets. If ingested, the animal could become very intoxicated and weak, severely depressed or could go into a coma.
    • Keep your pets on their normal diet. Any change, even for one meal, can give your pet severe indigestion and diarrhea. Foods such as onions, chocolate, coffee, avocado, grapes, raisins, salt and yeast dough can all be potentially toxic to companion animals.
    • Do not apply any sunscreen or insect repellent product to your pet that is not labeled specifically for use on animals. Ingestion of sunscreen products can result in drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst and lethargy. The misuse of insect repellent that contains DEET can lead to neurological problems.
    • Keep matches, lighter fluid, citronella candles, insect coils and tiki torch oil products out of reach. Ingestion can produce stomach irritation and possibly even central nervous system depression. If inhaled, the oils could cause aspiration pneumonia in pets.

    Water Safety

    • Don’t let pets drink pool or ocean water. Drinking a large amount of sea water can lead to elevated sodium levels for dogs, which can cause nausea, vomiting, lethargy, tremors and potentially seizures. Pool water, on the other hand, can lead to low sodium levels. Signs of ingestion often start with nausea, vomiting and lethargy, and can progress to depression, unsteadiness, and even coma and seizures. Have your pet take breaks from playtime and drink lots of fresh water throughout the day. If a pet is exhibiting any neurological signs, get into a veterinary clinic immediately.
    • Keep your pet away from ocean critters. Star fish, sea urchins, jelly fish and squid are just a few of the creatures that can pose risk for our pets. If your pet is in or near the ocean, keep a close eye on him or her, and make sure they stay in more shallow water.
    • Avoid Algae. “Red tides” in the ocean are caused by a reddish-brown algal bloom that can be toxic to sea life, humans and our pets—leading to anything from eye and breathing issues to stomach upset, confusion or seizures. Blue-green algae can be found in fresh water like lakes or ponds, and ingestion can cause a serious problems like liver disease or affect the nervous system. Before letting your pet get in any water, check the area for postings and/or the presence of algae. If you see anything suspicious, it would be better to stay on dry land.
    • Practice pool safety. When pets get into the containers of the pool chemicals before they have been diluted, it can lead to burns—both on the skin with prolonged contact, or in the mouth and stomach if ingested. If you have caught your dog ingesting any pool chemicals, give a small amount of water or milk to dilute and then call APCC or take to a local veterinary clinic for evaluation.

  • Halloween Safety For Your Pets

    Halloween is an exciting time of year, but the excitement might be a little too much for your pets. It is important to take simple precautions on Halloween to keep your pets safe.

    Clear The Air would like to share these safety tips:

    • Don’t give your pets any candy and keep the candy bowl out of their reach. Chocolate, xylitol (a sugar substitute), and wrappers can be very dangerous for pets.
    • Make sure your pets are wearing their ID tags even if you don’t plan on taking them out. They could accidentally get out while the door is constantly opening and be scared off by Trick-or-Treaters coming to your house.
    • The loud voices, constant door bell ringing, and knocks on your door can stress out your pet. Keeping your pets in another room during Trick-or-Treating time will help your pets feel safe.
    • As a precaution, bring your outdoor pets inside to keep them safe from any cruel Halloween pranks.
    • Keep Halloween decorations away from pets. If you are going to display your pumpkins with candles, put them where you pets can’t reach or accidentally knock over.
    • Keep the costumes simple! Make sure they fit and are comfortable for your pet. Check for any loose pieces that you pet may be able to chew off and supervise them while they are dressed in costumes.
