Know there are some old threads out there but just took this pic and thought this thread could take off. Rover folks love their kids and dogs....
This by the way is our son Happy Bell. Real name. Future 90 owner.

Melting ice cream sandwich on a hot day. He is one reason I carry car cleaning and detailing products in the truck at all times.

Today on the way home. For those with a keen eye, yes that's TWO 90lb+ German Shepherds and the kid in the back of the 90. Curious to see how this works out when the 2nd child is born in November.

A drive in the Rover is a sure way to initiate a good nap. Something about the noise and bouncing about.

That looks snug!!! Was someone in the front or do you always put him in the back?

The kid or the dogs? Wife was in front...but yes, generally the kid and the dogs go in back. But mainly because if I've got the kid AND both dogs then the wife is pretty much along for the ride as well!

I haven't taken a road trip yet, but I could see that happening. The drone of the engine and tires seems to have that effect. My wife's car is too quiet and smooth for the boys to fall asleep.

gas stops can be combo'd as well with the watering holes. The 300tdi does get some good mileage though. Wee bit loud too since mine site farther back than most.
