Almost as early staff were in the yard doing morning chores & getting ready for the group.
After a presentation at the shop, the bus arrives at the yard.
A mountain of gear, 4 groups.
Sleds are loaded & tied down.
The harness demo.
Bringing dogs to the line.
Harness & hook dogs.
Everyone involved. Makes for quick hookups.
On the way to the bush.
Some people have a vision of being wrapped in a bear coat & gliding peacefully through the bush. Not at Chocpaw! We encourage people to work with their teams. Also helps stimulate warmth on chilly days.
2 hours 15 minutes. 28 sleds loaded, 28 teams hooked, 172 dogs.
A flawless hook & run by the group & the dogs.
Well done RSG!
