thanks for your email and I am happy that you enjoy my blog. I will try to write something every day now during ONAC.
Helen & Egil's - Blog
Egil has a real strong and fast team this year so we are of course racing for another 1st place.
Trail here in Fairbanks is super hard and extremely fast, almost flat. You do not need much dog power only speed to travel fast.
You can not compare ONAC and Rondy, two very different races.
During Rondy our dogs had a stomach virus but now they all look healthy. Several teams at the LNAC had the same sickness, dogs look ok but they have no energy.
Competition will be though this year, Arleigh will have a fast team and Blayne Streeper of course as previous years.
By the way, there will be a german musher competing in this years ONAC. Michael Tetzner is here, looks like he is leasing the second string from Streeper.
Sunny and cold here, minus 30F every night and sunny, clear days.
have to go out and drop dogs, and then off to training
