Team Resting in the Sunlight
What we do during a simulated checkpoint: Jim, resting on a straw bale
Jughead and Sparrow
Ernie and Dave
Danger and Arrow
And now for some color...
Rachel stopped at camp
Team running along the road
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...
