Preparing to Leave for PUWWA2009
Two guest mushers have arrived at Gunflint Lodge. Don Deckert will be here assisting Liz and Helen on client dog mushing adventures over the next week while Karen DeBoise and I leave for the Points Unknown cabin tomorrow morning. The women arrive for the Points Unknown Women's Winter Adventure 2009 on Thursday afternoon.
All staff from this adventure will be arriving two days before the participants so we can prepare for their arrival and take some time to play together on the trails with the sled dogs for a day. Chris, our dog handler, brings his dogs Frankie and Lilly along for the adventure. We'll run three teams and do a fun 12 mile run through the narrow, hilly and windy bush trails leading from the cabin.
Scott Pampuch from Corner Table Restaurant is our guest chef for the adventure. This is his second year with us and we can't wait to see what delicacies he has in store for us this week!
