Thanks Wileyblaze, yea I was so happy we got to use our new sled we have been going everyday for the last 7 days, the dogs have been so happy. We go out to the state forest, We hook the dogs up, he runs them on the sled, and I follow in the truck, we have a 2 1/2 mile trail we use there, for now anyway, we will use a longer one when they are in better shape.
Basset, my husband & I are originally from Marquette MI, we hope to move back to MI when he retire's, and have a team of 6 to 8 dogs. We talked about going to that sled race, I've always wanted to. We don't compete, we just do recreational sledding, and go to trade shows, out here to meet with iditarod runners. Ramy Brooks was there one year, and this past fall Karen Rumstead was there. They talk about their experiences with racing, especially the iditarod.
Cool photos, looks like everyone was having a good time!Wow you sure got a lot of snow where you live. What state do you live in, Alaska??? We'll thanks for showing those photos, I should try dog sledding someday hehe!
Thanks for the compliment's, I'm just so darn excited that we finally got to go this year. Don't get me wrong the rig is fun to, but there's nothing like the cold winter wind in your face, while the dogs are running.
