Here it is spring and I find myself reminiscing about the winter adventures with the sled dogs that ended a short time ago as warm and rainy days replaced frigid and flurry filled ones.
This past winter, Points Unknown grew significantly and there are many, many people to thank for their efforts in making the season a success. Without them it would not have gone as smoothly as it did, we would not have been able to provide quality adventures to as many people as we did, we would not have had as clean and organized a dog yard as we did and we would not have had as many beautiful and quality photos and videos of our adventures with the dogs as we did. This post is dedicated to all of those people. Words can not describe how thankful I am for the excellent jobs you all did. You all (and your dog teams) put so much effort into the Points Unknown program and it was better because of each and every one of you.
It's also important to thank Lee and Sarah, formerly of Gunflint Lodge, for giving us the opportunity to provide our program to the guests of Gunflint Lodge beginning in 2007. We are excited to announce that Points Unknown will be taking another path beginning next season. Although we are sad to say good bye to Gunflint Lodge, it has been an unforgettable experience for us and for the dogs and we take with us some very powerful memories and experiences. We will no longer be providing adventures for Gunflint Lodge guests but will, instead, be focusing on our women's programs that include remote wilderness adventures and our new Metro Adventures in the Minneapolis Metropolitan area where there has been a high demand for what we have to offer. Adventure details will be posted on the website by this summer so please check back.
Again, my sincere thanks to all and a BIG thanks goes out to all of you who spent time with us out on the trail. I hope you'll join us again soon!
