In his memoir, Travels with Hafa: In Search of Ourselves, author Nathan Pettijohn recounts an RV trip that he had taken with his German Shepherd, Hafa, in the fall of 2019 after a hard-hitting breakup.  With his only expectation of the trip to escape and to reflect, Pettijohn sets the tone for a relaxed trip that begins in California and circles around the Pacific Northwest in under a month.
