The "bug" that I and half of the Gunflint Lodge staff had been sick with for the past few weeks is now gone. I and the other Points Unknown mushers have spent the time since the PUWWA2008 with a booked schedule of adventures with lodge guests. President's Day weekend was a busy weekend and now after two days of rest for both mushers and dogs, Helen and I were on the lake today for our Gunflint Lake Experience with four guests.
The DNR Becoming and Outdoors Women Winter Event is scheduled for the first weekend in March. I will be attending this event while Helen and Erik run the Winter Tracks Festival dog mushing events at the lodge with the help of Don who will be returning with his dogs for the festivities. The following weekend, which is the second weekend in March, Gunflint Lodge will be hosting the PUWWA2008 (Points Unknown Women's Winter Adventure) at Gunflint Lodge. This puts us almost to the middle of March. Lets hope the snow and cold weather stick around until April 1st! It will be sad to see this dog mushing season end.
