This site is dedicated to my sled dogs, their well being and their care while we train for and run the 2007 Yukon Quest 300 dog sled race. Particularly it is dedicated to the memory of Talbot and Rocket, two of the most amazing lead dogs ever to hit the trail, now gone to better trails.

We are still doing ten mile runs at night, last night it was -30c, lots of stars and the dogs are getting pretty comforable with ten mile runs. My other coach and mentor Darren Kinvig has helped me to put a training routine together which should help us get the required training in the time frame left. Sooooo...starting this weekend we do twenty mile runs for a while and then throw in a few thirty mile runs and see how we do.

As this whole adventure starts to take shape, more and more pieces of the puzzle are starting to fall into place as people come forward with ideas and advice seemingly out of nowhere. That kind of support and frienship is an amazing boost to the confidence level i feel about me and the dogs and our ability to make the Quest 300 a reality which ultimately is a stepping stone to the Yukon Quest itself.

Keep watching.
