Pretty lake where we got water during camp out

Whew! Back at home now and attempting to fill in the blanks of all the things that happened that I didn't write about.

Notes to Self from Sled Dog Camp

#1. Make sure when taking off on an unfamiliar quad, you know all the weird ways "reverse" engages on the particular machine. I got stuck in a large sand hill with a tree smack in front of the quad (don't ask) and had to literally pick up and drag the thing in knee-deep sand for over an hour to get it out because I couldn't get it into reverse!

#2. Don't assume the little blinking arrow on a GPS is pointing the way you're going.

#3. Don't assume learning how to use a GPS is self-explainatory!

#4. Always be prepared. For anything: rain, cold, being lost, being hungry...
