Vielleicht noch in diesem Winter ...

... nach vier Schlittenhundesaisons in den Pyrenäen, den Alpen, in Lappland, im Sauerland, in Thüringen, in Südtirol, im Engadin, im Erzgebirge, in Norwegen ... wird es uns langsam zu "eng". Wir kennen inzwischen alles und jeden und würden gerne etwas Neues erleben - und etwas anderes hören und lesen als immer den gleichen Kram ...

Deshalb werden wir die Fühler ausstrecken und vielleicht noch in dieser Saison den ersten Ausflug (nach über 15 Jahren) über den großen Teich machen. Damit der Kopf auch einmal wieder frei wird vom Klein-Klein hierzulande ...

In der nächsten Saison spätestens sollte sich hier aber etwas tun ... und Infos über Alaska etc. werden wir hier sammeln. Als öffentlich zugängliches Nachschlagewerk für unseren bevorstehenden Trip so zusagen ...

Vielleicht können wir jemanden motivieren mitzufahren ...

Rondy 2009 ... Buddy's Promo Tour



... read in the Streeper Kennel Blog:

Painting on the wall ...

Today we were invited to a mural unveiling on 4th avenue, in an area recently renamed the sled dog district. the mural was titled: Fur Rondy World Championship and was dedicated to all the past champions. Notably the painting incuded pictures of the 8 mushers, who have won this race 3 or more times. Top of the list was George Attla - 10 time winner. Next was Doc Lombard - 8 time winner, then the 2 four time winners, Charlie Champaign and Egil Ellis, followed by the 3 x winners, Roxy Wright, Ross Saunderson, and Raymond Paul.

After the unveiling, we had to run dogs. I was running the yearlings again, ...

After the run, we raced over to the elementary school on northern lights street. There we were greeted by some very enthusiastic 2nd graders, who were thrilled to see the dogs out and running around. I told the kids about the races and this weekend, and answered questions. Lina, Terry and I handed out souvenirs to the kids and encouraged them to ask questions. It was fun to see their excitement.

Afterwards we came back to the room, where we would feed the dogs, same as every day, but today we had a reporter from the newspaper stage photos and video our routine. He asked questions and got some very good tape, as I had him get the pics of dogs leaping into their boxes and eagerly awaiting their feeding. The story will run Friday.

Tonight we went to TUDUR road bingo parlor where many dog club members gathered to present Jack Powers, parlor owner, with a plaque of appreciation, as his lotto licence will be the main funding source for this areas club and races for many years to come.

Why not invite Buddy to special races in Europe to compete against the European open mushers ...?! He's worth the money!

The Rondy 2009 ...

The Rondy Trail

Microsoft Word - 2009_Rondy_Race_Roster_V01.docThe Rondy 2009 Trail ... musste ein bisschen gekürzt werden. Aber das kennen wir ja auch in Europa ... das Kürzen von Trails ... for one or another reason ...

It's great fun to hear the many split times from 11 check points for 18 mushers and the musher small talk directly from ALASKA: Rondy 2009 live radio coverage.

Guess we'll be in Anchorage at 4th Av. next year too ... to see the dogs and the hero mushers ...

Kornmuller, Ellis, Reynolds and Streeper seem to be the four fastest dog teams on Friday, day one of the ROOOOONDY 2009 ...

Buddy’s Halftime Serenade ...

Wir haben uns totgelacht ... aber nicht alle Internet-Musher werden diese Spots verstehen ...

Auch wir verstehen nicht jeden Witz. Uns wurde gerade einer erzählt: Buddy fährt mit "new leaders"! ... wir fanden das nicht witzig, was gibt es da zu lachen?
