Things are going to be busy this week. The schedule goes something like this -
Today (Monday) - dogs in for a chiropractic adjustment with Susan Whitton
Tuesday - need to run two teams. Probably my final real runs prior to Iditarod, although I will try to get them out a couple more times for short runs just to keep them limber
Wednesday - Hopefully run dogs. Hoping to squeeze in the haircut I wanted to do at home before heading up here - that I still haven't done. Mark arrives at 7pm.
Thursday - Musher's meetings and Musher's Banquet
Friday - Open House and run dogs
Somewhere in the midst of that I need to pack, tidy up our finances (so our phone doesn't get cut off like last year), get ready for the Open House, get my second sled ready to be shipped, etc, etc, etc....
Actually, I hear there is hardly any snow from the top of Rainy Pass, through Rohn, the Burn and all the way over to Iditarod. They are saying it could be a very tough trail.
I used to think I preferred the northern route, but I am kind of looking forward to the southern route this year, so maybe my preference is changing!
