27-28January2018

Brownville-KI & Beyond, Maine

Separate race each day

Saturday:

The original plan was to enter one team in the 6 dog 20 mile class, and a second team in the 4 dog 10 mile class. However, Arrow was off the team with a shoulder injury.

So, instead, we entered two teams in the 4 dog 10 mile class.

Our friend Joy drove our second team. This was Joys first time driving a race team. She came in 3rd place out of 6 teams with a time of 1:04:38!

Diesel and Solo in lead, Starbuck and Crowley in wheel.

The team I drove came in 4th place out of 6 teams with a time of 1:06:42

Cherokee and Ruby in lead, Castiel and Stride in wheel.

Both teams made SDO time. First place was a fast world championship hound team! Crowley finished his Sled Dog title!

Sunday:

Two teams entered in the 6 dog 20 mile class.

Once again, our friend Joy drove our second team. Joys team borrowed a dog from Thesewoods Kennels, and came in 10th place out of 15 teams with a time of 2:14:31.

Joy made SDX time. She missed SDO time by 15 seconds!

Diesel and Gale in lead, Solo and Starbuck in point, Crowley and Mocha in wheel.

Starbuck finished her Sled Dog title!

I borrowed two dogs from Kelim Siberians for the team I drove, and came in 6th place out of 15 teams with a time of 2:02:30

I made SDO time.

Cherokee and Castiel in lead, Stride and Ruby in point, Merlin and Winchester (Castiel and Rubys littermate!) in wheel.

Chinook Trail, Wonalancet, NH

6 dog class 14 miles

10th place out of 14 teams with a time of 1:57:49. We missed SD time by THREE seconds!

One of our dogs experienced a form of low blood sugar during the last 6 miles or so. The trail was very punchy, soft, like running in deep sand, and the temperature was warm.
