Wow! We apologize for our lack of updates this year. It's been whirlwind for us this past few months!
As many of you may know, we started our own summer tour business down in Cantwell! We were given a window of opportunity to essentially take over the spot of our summer tours last year and start our own business, so we said what the heck! Let's do it! We didn't know until the end of March that this was a possibility so we hurried to get logistics into place and by the end of April, things were set into stone. We moved all 24 of the dogs down to our beautiful location in the mountains and set up camp. Tours were slow at the beginning, but now that word is out and the tourists are teeming, things have been looking very bright!
We have been very fortunate to meet all kinds of lovely folks this summer who are interested in what we do, and it is allowing us to do what we truly love (working with our dogs) year round, and being your own boss isn't so bad either!
We appreciate everyone's support throughout the last year that helped us to get here, and hope to gain many new supporters over years to come through our tour business and racing!
We should be down here until the end of August, then it's back to Two Rivers to get a jump on fall training... Oh, and Richie and Emily will be tying the knot in September so we may take a short break for that ;)
Stay tuned, we will try not to go another 5 months without an update again! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as the Wildthingz!
We have been in Cantwell, just outside of Denali National Park for the past three and a half months running Dog Cart tours! It has been a beautiful, exciting summer where we have met many tourists whom are interested in what we do. We have had the great opportunity to share our livelihood as dog mushers with these people and received many new followers and even more support! Thank you to all who came out this summer and did a tour, we can't wait for next year!
