Help Has Arrived!


Don Deckert of Tundra Star Siberians arrived at the Gunflint Lodge this morning. He will be the third musher at the lodge while I am away for the next week at the Points Unknown Women’s Winter Adventure 2008. Don works with Adopt-A-Husky and has seven Siberian Huskies that are what he calls “foster failures”. These are dogs he intended to foster until they were adopted but he fell in love with each and they ended up staying. He has made quite a cohesive and powerful sled dog team out of this part time couch potato/house dog bunch.


Don did an excellent job with clients over the past week. He was involved with a Gunflint Highlands run and two Gunflint Lake Experiences, one of which ended prematurely when a ground blizzard swept the lake, making even seeing the dogs difficult. Both teams, mushers and clients made it back safely and had a truly unique adventure.


Karen DeBoise also arrived at the lodge today with her five dog Siberian Husky “foster failure” team. Karen will play a big role in the Points Unknown Women’s Winter Adventure off the Arrowhead Trail north of Grand Marais, MN. We depart to prepare for this adventure Tuesday morning.
