I was hoping to do some diary entries tonight, but something came up and that won't be happening now. I will quickly answer this question though, as it seems to be the 'burning' one on the Northwapiti Yahoo Group list.
The dogs that came up to Alaska with us are (in only somewhat particular order) -
|*These dogs also made the trip up to Alaska in 2004|
Yes, that's right - Jamie can't count :) - only 21 make the trip (and yes, Kara rode in the cab). The criteria for making the team this year was tough - all 2 year olds (ie JR) and all 3 year olds that didn't lead (ie. Pepsi and Barq) were cut. Barq was definately the hardest cut as I've been so pleased with him this season, but he will be even more ready to race next year. Camilla was a very hard cut too, but a late season injury (she is fine now) kind of sealed her fate.
Anyway - must run. I'll try to get to diary updates tomorrow.
Here is a wrap up story regarding the Copper Basin 300 top finishers found at http://www.juneauempire.com/stories/011105/spo_20050111021.shtml and for future archival use a pdf version of the story.
