Mara’s Move is Going Well!

Facebook Live Monday Evening

Dinner break for the caravan. Both Mara and the humans are enjoying dinner in a parking lot of a check station along the way. It’s getting dark, but you can see Mara a little in her crate. She’s drinking water and eating some hay. The current plan is another 250 KM of driving today before stopping for the night. Tomorrow will be a longer day.

We expect the entire trip to last 4-5 days, so we are looking at arriving sometime midweek this week. We will keep everyone posted as we continue along the journey.

We want to mention that there have been some issues with some people receiving texts – either texts not coming through or having a delay. It looks like its an issue with a specific carrier, so we apologize to anyone not receiving texts. If you signed up for text messages on your mobile phone and are not receiving them, try restarting your phone as that helps some people experiencing the issue.

      We are posting the live feeds here on the website (once wrapped up), also. You can find them here. And if you aren’t receiving the text messages, try restarting your cell phone; that seems to be working for many.

    Why does it take a long time to do anything? This is hard on humans and animals. We are alike this way.
    Thank you for taking such good care of this elephant. Bless her heart and the teams, also.
