Mushing in California!!!
Had a great day here today started out first thing running dogs! Yes mushing in California! Nick and I went and met up with the Urban Mushing group just a few miles from where Nick lives. What an awesome scene. 20 plus people, 40 plus dogs all getting fired up about dog mushing in shorts and t-shirts! Its hard to leave my dogs and go to a place like California but this morning made it all good. I got to see a totally different style of mushing, talk to people who are just as fired up about it, and run Dorsey (nicks dog he got last summer from me). I got my dog talk fix and learned more about what they do and the equipment they use! It was AWESOME! the carts and scooters they use are very cool, I will have one of the carts to run my dogs with in Alaska next summer for sure. Check them out at www.urbanmushing.com.
From there Nick and I hit up an In and Out Burger, Ralphs and headed up the coast to Santa Barbara where we did an awesome hike, the weather was really foggy and misty but still around 70 degrees, Besides not being able to see more then 40 feet it was sweet! now we are back here in San Clemente at Nicks place getting prepared to try my hand at Surfing tomorrow. From what I hear I am going to get by butt kicked, but I am excited to get out there and give it a shot. This is been an awesome trip in part because of all the good news coming out of Eureka! Kyla and Casey are taking care of the whole operation and its going great. They have been running my team as well as Kylas, and everything is going smoothly, which is a huge relief for me. I am extremely lucky to have such great handlers! I am having great time here in Cali, but I will be ready to leave the masses of people and traffic here and get back to my paradise in Eureka! But not before I give this surfing thing a shot! Stay tuned for updates on how my adventure goes! Heres a few pics from a great day!

Wild and Free Update
Life in Eureka is in full Swing, Casey and Kyla are doing an awesome job taking care of all of Kyla's race team plus all of the Trail Breaker Kennel Dogs. My team is looking better then ever and the addition of a few more really talented dogs has me extremely fired up! temps are finally starting to drop and a little snow has it looking like winter! Between training dogs we are working on clearing trials, collecting firewood and getting prepared for the newest member of the Wild and Free Team! Yes I have found a third handler and we are all very excited to add Amy to the team. She will be arriving at the end of the month and will be a welcome addition to the team. More on Amy when she arrives and begins her wild and free adventure. With the addition of Amy we need more room so I have started the construction of a new small sleeping cabin, the floor is built and i will finish it up when i ma back from Cali. As for me I have been working hard to get all the logistics set for the season, so by the end of Oct. I can be in Eureka to stay for two months of uninterupted training. But right now I am sitting in the Anchorage airport, getting ready to get on a plane to California! Ya seems crazy to me as well but, it was time to go visit my brother and his Wife Emily. California is a world away from Eureka, this morning I was in the Middle of Alaska and tomorrow I will be in Los Angeles! can anyone say culture SHOCK, not to mention the 60 degree temperature swing. OK their loading the plane, thanks for checking in. O and check out the new and improved Dog section of the website. We have launched the 2010-11 Dog sponsorship program so go the "The Dogs" tab to meet the team and help support Wild and Frees 2010-11 race season. thanks again for checking in, Headed to Sunny California, Cool shot from a night training run!!
