We are getting the start to winter all of us dog mushers have been dreaming about.  Since the last time I updated we had a warm day that melted alot of the 3 inches we got earlier in the month but over 4 inches has fallen in the past 36 hours and we are living in a winter wonder land.  The forecast is calling for even more snow and cold temps in the coming days.   If this keeps up we will have the base that we need to put in all of our trails and be mushing by the end of the month, this of course is wishful thinking but it has gotten us this far so why not keep it going.  the dogs are loving it today I ran 3 teams and watching them run through the deep snow as a great sight, today was one of the best days the leaders listened to my commands and there wasnt a slack tug line all day.  I even got my retired lead dog learn out and he lead a 14 dog team around a short 3 mile loop and was great.   He is a little over weight and looking is rip old age of 14 but today he looked like he was 8 again leading the team down the powdery trail.  Pat my sponsor is visiting now and what a great weather for her to experience, it is so awesome around here with all the fresh snow, it really makes it feel like it is the middle of winter.  I think there is more snow now then we had by the middle of December last year.  AJ, my new handler is really catching and adjusting to a dog mushers life, which has made the productivity around here go way up and just in time, we were able to get the place totally cleaned up before it snowed , which is a huge load off.  Well I better get to bed I keep you posted on how everything is going around here and if mother nature keeps on the pace she is now i ma sure it will be all good.  until next time 


It is hard to believe that Lear is 14 - he did so well on the trail!

I was so lucky to have such great weather - snow, sun, cold, below zero days....I couldn't have ordered anything better!
