Sitting down in front of the fireplace with hot cocoa and my ecotourism business manual. Kari and Lars Bremnes on the stereo.
I ran two 4 dog teams today, 16 km each. The dogs got to stretch their legs and I got to get back on the runners after 4 long days off. Trail conditions down by the house consist of 1" of snow on glare ice. Once I saw the trails, I realized splitting the team in two was a good call. I am so terrified/thrilled to have responsibility for the yearlings I try and take every precaution I can concerning their (and my) safety.
Tomorrow we will train up in the mountains, where there is plenty of snow, with normal size teams (10-12dogs).
