40 YEAR OLD YUKON QUEST MUSHER
Rookie - YQ 100Nationality:
I started by running behind a German Shepherd.
The last litter was born after a canoe trip so I named them after river features - Wave, Canyon, Hoodoo and Eddy.
I entered the race for fun! I don't have any performance expectations as long as the dogs are happy.
Camping out with a bunch of friends in the bush!
All my dogs have a "position" in society. Albus is the Prime Minister. Phoenix is the clown and Eddy is his assistant. Toulouse is the Minister of Transportation. Dali is the opera singer (and PB a singer in training). Canyon is the priest, and so on.
Oh, I've got many! I spent lots of time as a volunteer over the years and met amazing people. As a musher, I most often go where there isn't anybody.
Nothing. I watch things, I don't listen much
My indispensable handler is 9 years old and running his own dog team of three.
