Mar - 03 2014 | no comments | By

Due to a technical change on the ITC backend side race updates to the blog and the Iditarod Live App are delayed. I am working on a workaround to get this resolved ASAP

Martin got into Finger Lake at 1:30 AM and was out already at 1:50 AM. He only stayed long enough to snack the dogs.

And I am so slow to post this time round because of many personal commitments.

Busy spring time

May - 08 2012 | no comments | By

Wow things have been hectic since the end of the Iditarod. The kennels at Husky-Time have seen a complete overhaul and now sport stylish Hardwood flooring (actually it is Pine J) and new doghouses. Each kennel has now its own kitchen sink for fresh and clean water (no more footbaths guys, sorry).

Put a new roof on Cody’s kennel too so she cannot climb the 9 foot fence anymore.

Working with our Horse Tuxedo on our Parelli Level 1 and 2 games is also taking up a lot of my spare time but we are getting there.

Till next time

Good mush and always remember, to be a pack leader you need to stay calm and assertive.

33 mushers finished so far the Iditarod XL

Mar - 16 2012 | no comments | By

Since the 33rd musher to finish, Jim Lanier, wearing bib #3 crossed under the arch at 17:58 on Thursday, there’s been a lull. Rookie Mike Santos left White Mountain at 12:18 and could arrive before midnight tonight to make the 17th musher of the day.The fire siren sounds and Iditarod spectators flock to the Burled Arch on Front Street. Folks watching the IonEarth tracker hike down the street prior to the siren to meet the mushers and dogs behind the Subway and Gold Coast Cinema building as they climb off the Bering Sea Ice. Participating in Iditarod as a spectator in Nome is strenuous. It’s especially strenuous on a day when 16 teams sign in under the Arch.
