The snow just keeps on coming!! We got another couple inches tonight and its still coming down. We are getting spoiled with all of this snow, but Im not complaining it makes for some great trail conditions. Had another epic night of breaking trail with the Alpine tonight and got the trail to Manley in. This is huge because it connects us to another set of trails that are broke in by the people in Manley and Tanana. With this trail in we have over 200 miles of trail in and in great shape, well in my opinion, some would say they are a little crazy but they are just the way we like them. The Dogs are doing great, I currently have 22 dogs in my race training and they are all very strong. We have been doing double 40's and 50's and they are all rolling around in the snow at the end which is always a good sign! Our first race is the Sheep Mountain 150 scheduled for Dec 12 but there is a lack of snow in the area so it is not looking good for that race to happen. Ill keep ya posted on that. Other big news is I finally managed to get the sauna finished! It took some late night motivation but last night we had our first sauna and it was great. I am looking forward to using it on a regular basis. As any of my close friends will attest too, completing the sauna is a huge breakthrough for me. I have been trying to build one for the past five years. I even have a floor built for one at my place in fairbanks, but It just never made it high enough on the priority list until now. With the lack of a shower out here it will be very nice to mix a sauna in between soaks in the hot springs! I have to head to town tomorrow for the day and night to pickup dog food and other supplies, wish me luck, Im hoping for a quick painless trip. Puppy training continued today, their third run was great they are improving everyday. I gave Clyde and Twix a go in leadand they did awesome, cant wait to try the rest of them in front. I will post more videos of them in a few days. In the mean time here are a few views from around camp. Enjoy. Thanks for checking in.
Brent - thanks for posting these training videos, they are a great way to stay in touch with the ongoings at Wild & Free. I am getting psyched for the season watching you & the pups training. Quest 2010 here we come!!!
