Up to 24 miles with the dogs! We have about 3 inches of snow on the ground…which means chains on the 4-wheeler. Alyssa has taken the small sled known as the ‘squirrel’ out for several 4-5 dog runs. It won’t be long now that we start taking the bigger sleds out and put the 4-wheeler away for the winter.
I forgot to mention in the previous blog that we recently attended the 2012 Sled Dog Symposium held in Fairbanks in mid-October. It was a lot of fun meeting different mushers and learning more about racing. We will be having fun experimenting with various nutritional supplements over the next 5 months as we race. The dogs will be eating better than we are!
Also, Alyssa and I have both signed up for the Two Rivers 200 in early March! We hope to both be running 12 dog teams. Happy Halloween!! MH
