More trail work

Trail work has become a high priority since we have not gotten any new snow.    The more I go over the trail the more stumps and tussocks get exposed and that has led to a rougher and more out of control ride.  I am going over the trail 3 times a day so the trail is really taking a beating.  So today I was out again with the snowmachine  cutting stumps and using an ax to chop the tops off of the tussocks.  Cant wait to hit the trail first thing tomorrow morning.  Ill update you tomorrow on how the newly renovated trail treated the dogs and I.   My progress on projects around the cabin have slowed since the mandatory  jobs of watering, feeding, shoveling, puppy walks and running 3- 10 dogs teams on 20 mile runs is keeping me plenty busy.  I am now counting down the days until Kyla gets here on the 2nd of Nov. She will make everything happen allot faster, be more efficient and allow me to finish up some important jobs like filling my wood shed for Fairbanks' long cold winter.    I better get to bed.  Make sure to send snow my way!!  thanks for checking in 


Thanks for being so diligent in posting! We check your site every day here in Greensboro NC and really enjoy reading about what you're doing! Randy received the hats and is wearing them on the sidelines of the Appalachian State/Wofford game tonight. (I say "them" because he'll start out in the baseball cap and as the night gets colder switch to the toboggan hat.) We love reading about the dogs and all of your preparations for the upcoming races. It's really educational, and we feel like we're right in the thick of the run up to the Yukon Quest and Iditarod ourselves! We don't know how you do it! So much work! But it sure is exciting, even just being a spectator! Here's to a snowy season, with just the right amount for optimal running! Keep the faith!
Your friends in Greensboro,
Randy and Natalie Jackson
I am burning white candles and have my greyhounds jumping on the word "snow" as a way to do a snow-dance for you!
