I am signed up for the 2014 Knik 200, Northern Lights 300 and the Iditarod!
I am currently training 28 dogs for these upcoming races. We now have some snow on the ground here at the kennel. Not yet enough to train on a sled, so the 4-wheeler training continues. All the dogs are doing well and having a great time as is the musher.
Recently Thunder and I had the great opportunity to visit Mrs. Sannasardo's 6th grade class and speak with the students about the Iditarod. The students attend St. Philip The Apostle Parish which is located in Addison, Illinois. The class had asked some very great questions about the Iditarod and I enjoyed speaking with them.
These students above are Angela Bowens 7th grade class. They are from Hampton Academy, Hampton, New Hampshire. They all put a lot of time and effort to make dog treats and sell them so they could sponsor Mick for this coming 2014 Iditarod. I also had the oppertunity to skype recently with them to answer any questions they had about the Iditarod and the dogs. They are holding dog booties I sent them that were used during my 2013 Iditarod. I really appreciate for all they have done to help us out for this years race. It was a great time talking with them.
