One of my favorite aspects of living in Two Rivers is being surrounded by folks that love dogs, love mushing, and think that spending a Sunday on the trail trumps video games and movies (maybe not football games but that's what 4G is for). This past weekend, Riley and I took the dogs on a campout and met up with other local mushers Matt, Joanna, Chase, and Spencer. By camping next to other teams, it allows the young dogs to get a better idea of the checkpoint atmosphere and hopefully prepare them for our first race in a week and a half. That's right- Alpine Excursion race is on December 6th! Fingers crossed for more snow!
