With Mr Yankee and Mr Alabama on a dog sled tour
Working husky team in sun shine.

We started out from the kennel with 14 Siberian Huskies divided into three teams.
The first day we got clear and nice Lapland weather and ended up in a tent tipi. We drilled a waterhole, prepared the dog food, made fire, cooked dinner and had a very nice evening.
After a short jogging run in the snow we finally got in to our winter sleeping bags.
By 2 AM I woke up because it was so cold. I had to get the fire burning again and had to keep it burning until 8 o’clock in the morning. We got a cold night in our sleeping bags.
At home in Jokkmokk it was -20°C in the morning but by our camp I think it was around
-30°C during the night. The humidity probably made it feel colder. Usually we have no problem in -30°C with the same equipment.
The next night was spent in a nice and warm timber hut. After the cold night in the tipi it felt like HILTON á la Lapland.
Dave and Dwight did a good job as mushers also the last day when we drove back home to Jokkmokk. During three days we covered approx 100 km with the dog teams.
