Following my dad.
We look at themes that match some recent experience we have just had.
I was able to get the time away from school. I have a great vice-principal.
Being alone in the bush with my dogs. It is so much fun to watch your friends work so hard for you.
Most of my dogs I have raised as puppies. I have a few that came from the Race Marshal!
Mushing in an event in Quesnel, B.C., one volunteer annually gives me a shot of fireball at the checkpoint!
No music. I just sing to myself.
Handler Jody Verge looked after my team on the tundra in Churchill, Man., camping on tundra for two nights, while I stayed in a hotel.
I'm president of the Fort St. James Sled Dog Association. We organize two race events - "doggy doo" fun run and the Caledonia Classic Sled Dog Races.
