So the decision has been made. This is Travis’ 2013 Iditarod team. We’ll be posting more information about the individual dogs as the week goes on. Here’s the team in action and a quick introduction. After all the hard fought battles we’ve faced this season: flooding, no snow, more flooding, warm temps, hectic food drops…we’ve made it. Iditarod is only a few short days away and to say that Travis is more than ready is an understatement!
Travis shot this video yesterday on Exit Glacier Road in Kenai Fjords National Park, where we do a lot of our training and where we run our winter dog sled rides. It was really warm yesterday — 32 degrees — but that is typical of Seward. Our dogs are used to running in warmer temperatures which, given this year, may be a blessing as its been a warm winter throughout Alaska. Instead of the
30 miles Travis thought he was going to do, he decided to do 60 and came home shortly before dark. The dogs looked great when the got back to the yard.
