Tell us a story – maybe mushing related 🙂 My first race (and 3rd time ever on the sled) was the Christmas Classic on Dec 17th. My flight home to my family in Saskatchewan was on the 18th. Short of a few quality wipeouts the race went well. The dogs did good, Gerry got first and I got back in time to cross the finish line, strip off my parka and gear as fast as possible, load the dogs in the truck and have Darcy drive “hastily” to the airport. I got there with 10 minutes to spare before boarding. Flew to Regina, then due to poor communication/planning jumped in a car and drove to Edmonton. So in 72hrs I covered ~ 150 miles by dog sled, 2800 km by air plane and 950 km by car.
