A Change of Winter Scenery

This is the time of year that we start to make plans for our winter season. Mark has been booking holidays and I'm planning training/racing schedules. Certainly we can't plan out every single detail now, but the more we can organize and plan in August, the less chaos in our lives and the more time to focus on training dogs in the fall/winter!

As you all know, Iditarod is definitely in the plans for this season - but one thing that you all don't know about this winter is that we are moving our 'base camp' in Alaska to Two Rivers (just outside of Fairbanks)!

Jan Denapoli of Muzzy's Place Kennels has graciously opened her doors to the NorthWapiti Team. (Take a peak under "Handler Wanted" for some great pictures of Jan's place. BTW - I think the position is full and she just hasn't updated the site!)

We will, of course, miss Willow and all our friends there, but the thought of new trails and making some new friendships is exciting too!

Many thanks to Jamie West and Harry Banks for their hospitality over the years! We all really appreciate everything the two of them have done for us.


Looking back with gratitude and forward with excitement!
Karen

Well I guess we'll just have to suck it up and look forward to new wonderful photography of a different part of Alaska ;-) Can't wait to hear about new adventures!

Woofs,

I cannot wait for Iditarod season to start! I saw Karen's name on the Iditarod 2010 list in the August 5 Edition of Trail Blazer! I also love the new logo! It is NOT on the website - as I have gotten some comments from very upset people trying to find it.
Sign up for the free stuff offered at Iditarod.com - I am sure glad I did! I cannot wait to hear Karen's stories from the trail! Yay 2010
