Roving Vegans Adventure:
On this week's Roving Vegans Adventure, we took our 5 furbabies on a six hour road trip in our Tesla. We went to Myrtle Beach to relax and unwind. It's fun taking the boys on road trips because they all love vacations like we do, AND we get to meet so many new people through them. We attempted our first 48-hour water fast. Check out our results below:
