Friday, we ran our last 10 mile run before the race, yesterday 6 miles & Tuesday/Wednesday another two runs of 6 miles.
The team is doing great & physically looking good. The trails this week have been tough with drifting from high winds & a little fresh snow. The trails are in places are drifted back within 1 hour after grooming. That is the challenge of trying to maintain a "lake trail".
The temperatures this week has been warm around +1 to +3 during the day & only -3 to -6 at night. Very musher friendly, but not too dog friendly!
Ben was off to Laconia Sled Dog Race with Rosaire Perron,upon his request, as he needed a handler for the weekend. I expect Ben's return on Monday or Tuesday morning at the latest to help us finish our preparation for Daquaam.
I have uploaded a video of part of yesterdays run on the Training Page.
The Hobbit Puppies have grown enough to graduate from puppy collars to adult collars. Angel's puppies are also growing nicely & will soon have company with the addition of the two puppies from Bonnie/Nels Litter.
Until next week........
