This was my second trip to Muktuk. Frank is the most genuine man in the Yukon. What a gem of a musher. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit even though we did not get to run the dogs to the Yukon River due to rain and mud. Frank narrated a Yukon Quest video for us which I found extremely enlightening with Franks keen observations and analysis of that years race. Then Frank turns us loose in the kennels to visit with all the awesome sled dogs who run the Quest.
It is definitely a place for people who love dogs.
The Taste of Yukon Dinner was FABULOUS. Thank you Kevin for preparing such a lovely meal for us.
This second trip was me dragging my wonderful husband along, who had a fabulous time, to try and rally him around the Rookie Musher Ranch plus 1. He is an avid cyclists and thought perhaps he could go off snow biking on his Surly while I am hanging with the dogs. Anyway, I am not waiting for the green light from my husband. I am in the process of booking the Rookie Musher Ranch plus 1 on my own. It may be something I do every year for my birthday.
Learning to be a musher is beyond my wildest dreams to come true and Frank Turner can make that happen. I plan to be a beta member of the Muktuk Pack hanging with the pups they assign to be my sled dogs as soon as this Winter season. Why wait? I am not getting any younger.
If you love sled dogs and the Yukon then this the place for you.
