End Of Season Trip

The four of us along with 24 canine companions are packing up ready to head to the North Slope area, about 400 miles north of the kennel.

This will be the "last hurrah" for us for this season and we're excited to get out there in the arctic wilderness for a fun and relaxing trip before we head our separate ways for the summer (or in Moira's case: winter). We wish we could take the whole yard with us!

L-R: practice tent set-up; packing for the trip

You won't hear from us until later this week - we'll be sure to post some pictures once we are back.

I think the four-legged participants are going to really miss you guys - and it is lovely to have this week with them before you "break camp" for the non-mushing season!!!

Enjoys yourselves, all the best,

How fun guys! You DO KNOW how to mix work and play!��
Could you please post the roster of which pups went with you? I guess it's kind of a bittersweet occasion because the race season is over and, the four of you will take different 'trails' for the summer. HOWEVER, it is also a wonderful celebration of your combined success as a team!!!!
Happy trails Moira and Meghan! I wish you both the very best, and, I'm hopping that you BOTH return to SP Kennel this coming race season!
Safe travels and come back soon!
Aliy, Allen and dogs, congratulations again!
Looking forward to your posts throught Spring, Summer and fall...... And always!
God bless all of you!!!! ������������
