There was a huge gap in blog entries here so I felt I should fill in the blanks for anyone who doesn't know the whole story.
Iditarod - Take 2
Iditarod signups are approaching for 2023 and yes, I plan on signing up!
Putting on the Miles
We've been running dogs on sleds from the house since the first weekend of December, and race season is upon us. Only 6.5 weeks until Iditarod!
Hard to believe just 4 weeks ago it was in the 40's and I was complaining about the mud. Less than a week after my previous blog post the temperatures dropped, and the ground froze.
Fall training is heavily under way here, and both Lara and I can hardly believe it's only late October based on mileage. But oh, the mud.
We've been here in Alaska for about 6 weeks now. The leaves have turned, the weather is downright cold, our woodstove is pumping and we've already seen snow!
The Road to Alaska - Part 3
We've now officially been on the road for a full week, yet it doesn't quite feel that long despite all that's happened along the way.
The Road to Alaska - Part 2
Minnesota to Dawson Creek, crossing the Canadian border, and the bumps in the road along the way!
The Road to Alaska - Part 1
For so many years I've dreamt and imagined what moving myself and my team to Alaska would be like. Over the past 6 months those dreams finally became reality.
On my second album, "Contagious Grooves", I had a song called "Surreality". I find myself in that state a lot right now.
Springtime in the Kennel
Springtime means the close of another mushing season, but also the start of offseason activities around the kennel.
The Road Ahead
In just about 3 months from now the dogs, myself and a handler will leave to make the long trek to Alaska to start training for Iditarod. Follow along on our journey!
