seasons first run, and living my dream


We did our first run today and it was great! It has been a few years since I have been behind a full team of my own (ok 7 years) and this was our first. First time I have had a quad to use as well (thanks Norm and Sylvia). We striped the motor out of the quad and are using this to run the dogs.

Today we only went 4 kms but there are some good size hills and the quad is a bit heavy even stripped down. And keeping them short and fun is important for us after all we are still in July, there is lots of time to put more miles on them.

We ran Viva, and Spit in lead. Viva was great, but Spit lost inerest so we switched Red into lead and she did great, then we had Jarvi and Red/Spit and Qween and Garter in wheel.

If it stays nice and cool I hope to run them in a couple of days. The pic is not so great as the light was no good but our first run and it was so much fun, so I will share it anyways.
My dream when I was younger was to have a team of siberians and to be here in Faro and running them, so today I lived my dream, and I did it behind a great bunch of dogs, thanks Hayden for all your support and help.

Hei from Europe!
Lucky you!!!
No real place for mushing here in Germany, only when I am in Norway!
Would be great if you have interest in exchanging thoughts about the dogs, nature and the north with me?!!?
