Frankie, the Adventurous Goat Has Travelled More than 60,000 Miles Across America

Meet Frankie, the adventurous goat who has traveled over 60,000 miles across the US with her owners in their colorful Airstream trailer.

Cate Battles and her husband Chad moved from their house into a trailer in 2016, and they’ve been traveling to beauty spots with their favorite pet ever since.

Cate, a 34-year-old artist and travel writer from Grants Pass in Oregon, said:

“She’s an awesome travel companion. She’s visited all kinds of scenery with us; lakes, beaches, mountains, and caves. We’ve covered dozens of states and national parks together. At this point she’s probably been about 60,000 miles all around the country, all the way from the east to the west coast. She must have been to over 20 states already. Frankie loves being on the road and having adventures, she finds joy in any place she goes, in the desserts she climbs all over the rocks and at the beach she loves to lick the salt off the stones. She’s a great hiker, wherever we go she loves run around and explore. She’s even been to the Grand Canyon.”

The happy trio have managed to continue to travel during the pandemic, because they stick to places that are way off the beaten track.

We don’t go to camp grounds, we always go out into the middle of nowhere, so Covid hasn’t really affected us at all. We’ve done multiple trips this year already, including North Eastern Nevada and Idaho.

Frankie, a 6-year-old Nigerian dwarf/pigmy goat, will cover a lot more ground in the coming months. A die hard “goat mom,” Cate said she and Chad couldn’t imagine taking their trips without Frankie by their side.

She’s so much fun, she looks tiny but she actually weighs about 80 pounds, she’s a stocky girl and she’s very well fed by us. We have a great time with her.
