Brrrrrrr It's Cold out There

Synchoronized sled dog eating. Now if that was a sport we would nail the competition. It is great to see the doggies coming back from some longer runs and hitting the food right away. Jason is running a lot of 35-40 mile runs right now and trying to keep the dogs up on miles and healthy during this unseasonable November cold snap. We are seeing alot of -40 and -50 below zero tempertures and setting records here in the Fairbanks area. Hoping that it is not a theme for the winter and it warms back up and spits out a lot more snow. We are working really hard on keeping all the dogs very healthy and nice and fat. Jason has moved to running the sled, which means more work for him until we get more snow, but at least he can stay warmer on the sled. Also he can't stop the sled with all 16 dogs he is training with such low snow right now, which means he has broken the yard up into 3 teams and running a 2 on 1 off schedule. Again a special thanks to all supporting us and we will see you on the trail.
