Training Day

Today we are at Ross & Tammy Suanderson's. We arrived late last night. We had a drivethon from Eddy's to here. We took naps in the truck instead of getting a hotel. We stopped for a late dinner Monday night in Regina, Saskatchewan with our friends Aaron & Charlene Campbell. They have an adorable new baby, Avery Jordan, she's just 2 weeks old.
It's been really warm since we left there. In Edmonton, Alberta it was 50 degrees. Here in Ft.St John it's about 40 degrees. Ross' trail was nice though. We took 3 8-dog teams out for a short run just to see how everyone looked after running the race last weekend. Nine is still out, she's not feeling well. We ran all the others that ate breakfast. Looks like a couple are sore and most still are far from being back to 100%. We'll let them rest up the last leg of the trip home and hopefully we'll have at least a 6 & 8 dog team for the Exxon race this next weekend in Anchorage. We are leaving Ross & Tammy's here momentarily. We have to make a quick stop in Ft.Nelson and then we'll just keep driving. Hope to be bakc home sometime Friday.

Poor pups are probably pretty stressed from whole trip too. Hope they all get to feeling better ASAP. You all deserve a rest.

Way to go Nathan. Especially in light of the situation.

We'll look to see you all back happy & healthy.
