Pef dog proves big help to hitchhikers Thuraday, November 26,1981 — The Salina Journal Page 23 HUTCHINSON (HNS) - Some people would consider a dog a nuisance on a trip. Kot so Doug and Janice Trent. They have been traveling for six months and nave covered 7,500 miles - hitchhiking -accompanied by their dog, Lu-us. Add they said Lu-us has been an asset all the way. "ft is incredible how easy it is to get a ride when you have a dog along. There are a lot of dog lovers out there. Out of the hundreds of cars that stopped to give us a ride, only two decided they couldn't because of the dog," Trent said. Lu-us is a big dog, weighing about 70 pounds, with long white hair. He is a mixed breed, golden retriever and Samoyed, and a good traveler, Mrs. Trent said. "He loves it on the road and he's never given us a bit of problem. As Doug said, he's been an asset because Crossvrord By Eugene She/for ACROSS 1 Warbled 5 Baby's wear 8 Indian nurse 12 Dock 13 Solemn wonder 14 Wind indicator 15 American lake 16 Souse 17 Bettor's concern 18 Hereditary ruler 20 Eyelashes 22 "Far from - Crowd" 26 In an obscure manner 29 United 30 Sticky stuff 31 Anthem beginning 32 Foxy 33 Arrived 34 Archaic 35 Fleecy female 36 Strong winds 37 Indian Ocean island 40 Nervous 41 View 45 Singer Horne 47 "- a Long Way..." 49 Reverberate 50 Article 51 Negative particle 52 Ensnare 53 Paw parts 54 Horse command 55 Froth DOWN 1 Raced 2 Breezy 3 German denial 4 Much 5 Tend the turkey 6-Jima Avg. solution time: 23 min.

The Trents began their travels May 17 in Golden, Colo., and first headed southwest to Arizona, then went back up through Western Colorado to Wyoming and South Dakota, down to Nebraska and then up to Minnesota. They are in Hutchinson this week to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with Doug's mother and stepfather, Carolyn and Jim Carrington. TUB leg of their trip ia only the beginning. They plan to go around the world and spend five to seven yean on their trip. "We plan to throw a party in 1983 or 1984 in Katmandu, Nepal, or possibly Bombay, for the friends we have made and are making on this trip. We'll send out our invitations and then spend about six months in the Himalayas to give people time to make the arrangements to join us for the party," Trent said. "We are operating on the policy that we are going out on this trip to meet friends we do not yet know." The Trents said they decided to start traveling because they were bored and frustrated living in the city. Janice was. working for the American Red Cross while Doug sold stereo equipment in Golden at the time. "We had been staying with a friend and he had lost his lease so we had to move. He had a book on traveling. Janice picked it up and started reading and said 'Why don't we go? We've been wanting to travel. Let's do it.' That was April 17 and we gave ourselves a month to get ready. In that month both of us had pneumonia, probably because we were so excited we couldn't sleep and we let ourselves get rundown. But we were, ready to go May 17," Trent said. They had adopted Lu-us, who is about two years old, a short time before they left on their trip. Janice found the dog tied to a tree, abandoned. He had been there about three days when she took him home. KU graduates Both are 1979 graduates of the University of Kansas with science majors, she in biology and environmental science and he in biology and interpersonal communications. "We have the money to travel other ways, but we wanted to take the hitchhiking trip. We stay off the interstates and take secondary roads. If there are hundreds of cars going by you all the time few of them stop, but if you are on a road where only a few cars go by in an hour almost all of them will stop," Trent said. They carry camping equipment in backpacks, a small tent, stove, an extra set of clothing, rain gear, beef jerky and dried soups. Doug's pack weighs 25 pounds and Janice's 20 pounds. Lu-us has a dog pack, containing his brush, chain, dog food and a bowl. Both said they thought it very important for hitchhikers to remain clean and neat on the road. They usually camp near a lake, Doug said, and bathe in it, or they find YMCA's in towns where they can use the showers. "But it ia amazing bow many people gave us a ride and then asked us home with them to spend the night," Mrs. Trent wdd. They are keeping in touch with many of these new friends. They have also been doing some writing about their trip. One article was published in the Grand Rapids, Mich., newspaper and many have appeared in the Ely (Minn.) Miner. "When we got to Ely we went to the newspaper and talked to the publisher, a 64-year-old woman. She wanted to hire us Mltime. We worked for her for six weeks as reporters," Mrs. Trent said. "And we've been sending her stories of our trip ever since." 20% to 50% OFF THANKSGIVING FRIDAY & SATURDAY Selected groups of Junior & Missy •Sportswear •Dresses •Sweaters •Blouses •Jewelry •Denim and Corduroy Jeans OUR PICK OF THE NEW SEASON New Holiday Gift Items Lingerie — Teddi's, Robes, Gowns, House Slippers, Metallic Purses, Metallic Belts, Fashion Belts, Jewelry, Thermals, Shoe Strings, Hats, Gloves, Scarves, Metallic Socks, Textured Hose, Knee Highs, Fashion Blouses & Holiday Tops Mid Stale MalL No refunds or exchanges on sale merchandise Open Mon-Fri. 10-9 Sat. 10-6 THANKSGIVING Thanksgiving is going to our Grandma's Seeing Aunts, Uncles and all the inlaws, Eating mashed potatoes, and turkey wings, Olives, hot rolls and just lots of things.
