November Full Moon of Snow

Up here we called it WHITE FRIDAY!   We got a wonderful 8 inches the day after Thanksgiving, followed by at least 3 more and a forecast for even more.   It really looks and feels like winter.


Anyone interested in spending the winter with this beautiful snow, amazing friendly huskies and exhilarating mushing?  I am looking for an assistant/handler to help us with the dogs and trips.  You get your own sweet cabin to stay in, all meals and small stipend and the peace of nature and living simply.  Starting whenever one can come and through March.  Please email wintermoon@brimson.com or call 218-848-2442.


The sled dogs are doing great.  We are still training with the 4 wheeler until a few more rocks get covered.   And we still have some nipping and clearing to do on the trails.  Thanks to David and Mietek who helped with the chain saws on the new Raventrail recently.  I think we are at least half completed.


Foxy has recovered well from his dew claw and neuter surgery and is back training.  I walked him with Lemmikki to start getting the idea of being neck-lined with another dog and underestimated what would happen if they both really started pulling, which they did.  Luckily there was a lot of snow to dig my heels in however I was sweating when I got back.  I think he’ll be ready for the gangline soon.


There are still lots of openings for mushing this winter, especially at the end of December and beginning of January.  The list of dates is under Trips: Dogsledding and let me know if you have any questions.


One of the ways I am celebrating my 25th anniversary of Wintermoon is offering a free dogsledding adventure.  If you or you know anyone who has not been here before and would like to enter a drawing for a free dogsled trip, direct them to the web site to fill out the form.  The drawing will be December 21.


And remember, even though it is cold out and you may not feel as thirsty, to drink water!  Drink before you notice any thirst and particularly if you are exercising.  Being even slightly dehydrated, you will lose energy.
