Sedona Burn-out.

While I'm still coming to terms with my new life as a van-owner (the dog's crates are loaded and I'm slowly working on organizing my gear and supplies), I stumbled upon this video from "TeamHallNass" on YouTube - a review of a 2010 Kia Sedona. My dad had a similar experience as a passenger on my Sedona test drive as I punched the acceleration a few times. It may be a van - but it's got a good sense of get-up and go - and while I'll miss some of the creature comforts of the Saturn Outlook (so far I miss the thermometer most)its not going to be a bad trial vehicle.

Our setup so far:
Murphy (right) does not deal well with change. Now that I have more space Teller has a 42"x30"x21" crate on order to match Murphy's larger accommodations.  I'll eventually have a platform under the crates for storage as well. This gets the dogs out of the "crash" zone, but it also frees up other space for storage and organization.

The Kia Sedona has a built-in Mommy mirror - I presume moms need to be able to watch their litter of small children throw cheerios around the back seat of the van. I can peek on the boys.

Ground level - Murphy (left) and Teller. Once I have the crates properly tethered in the back I'll remove at least one of the two center-row seats.
