Now I Wanna be Your Dog

I apologize for a massive drought in postings, blame it on the darkness, roadtrips, laziness, whatever.  I'm just in on off the 2009 Yukon Quest so enjoy the pics, more soon...
Brent Sass prepares to drop off Eagle Summit.  Pucker factor:  High
Brent Sass pulls William Kleedehn's team up to the top of Eagle Summit.  I lay on the frozen grass for 2 hours waiting to see something, anything, and was well rewarded.  Thank you camera gods.
Warren Palfry's wheel dog Gumby makes the finish line look damn satisfying.
Palfry's son Jesse, 9, the youngest musher to cross the Yukon Quest finish line.  Look for him on the trail again in 10 years...

She said wait a minute honey gonna add it up

With classic Alaskan Feng Shwee the Arctic Entry is taking shape.  I decked the roof in -20F and blew a fuse trying to get the saw to turn since the blade was frozen.  It's all good now though, the snow can't get in, the front wall will get framed as soon as the thermometer hits zero and then the insulating can begin.  Yeah!  I love fiberglass!  
Mazzy Mae is not a fan of my Paslode nailer...
