Well, we made it safely on the first 1,000 mile leg of this trip, and crossed the border with no problems. Our arrival into Whitehorse was actually the worst part of the drive as it was snowing like crazy and we were having a tough time seeing the roads, and we couldn’t read any of the signs to know where we were supposed to go. We finally got our bearings and made it to the vet checks where everyone was given a clean bill of health. The snow continued throug the day and night dropping at least five inches of fresh powder or 10 cm as everyone here says. We found our host stay and family and they are incredibly nice, down to earh people. We have been enjoying many good meals and wonderful conversations with them. Today we also got out and gave the dogs their first run in two days. We went to some trails in the Annie Lake Road area, which as far as we can tell is a mushing mecca for this area, because we saw around 10 dog trucks to every one normal car. We also saw several teams out training including a few fellow Quest competitors. We ran a conservative 20 mile run through a beautiful woods trail tha had few sharp turns or steep hills, just miles of gentle curves and easy undulations. it was just what the dogs need to stretch their legs without risking any injuries so close to the start. Don’t know how often we will be able to update, but we will contine to try whenever we can. The race starts on Saturday, but we’ll try to make one more post before then with Cole’s starting order. Until then.
