For long time followers of the blog and North Wapiti adventures, Richard was last year's handler who took care of North Wapiti while Karen and Mark were at the Iditarod. Richard hails from Lincolnshire, England and actually has been very active in sled dog competition for the past 10 years "across the pond".
