Jan 28, 2013. Fabulous! This was truly an adventure, Peter and the gang are just great and the dogs are the absolute best. Your safety is #1 on their list. Fun is rolled in there every single day you are either in the Yurt, on the trail or laying in the snow watching your sled and dogs go on without you. Theo and Paige were our guides, I was lucky to share my trip with two other ladies from the Black Hills (long time returning guests). I was concerned that being a newbie would slow them down, but we all had a wonderful time. The guides and dogs are the best.
The list you receive of what to bring with you is spot on - you can always take a layer off but if you don't have an extra one to put on then you will be cold. I can honestly say that I was rarely cold. Trust Peter he knows what he is talking about. The Yurt - what can I say about the Yurt, you have heard of theatre-in-the-round well this is tent-in-the-round. Pretty funny when I think about the flannel PJs with the kitties on them that I was going to wear in the Yurt. You will leave most of your clothes on, cuddle up in the sleeping bag on the cot and don't stick your nose out until morning when you smell coffee. All the meals prepared were great, stick to the ribs food. We stopped by a lake and had Brats made over a roaring fire for lunch and homemade cookies. Hot chocolate is a wonderful thing.
I met some terrific people and have great memories.
Snow is hard.
Ice is hard.
To stop your team, say Whoaaaaa in a very calm and low voice ... screaming OMG Stop! doesn't work.
Contact lens solution will freeze.
Hang on BEFORE saying "all right" to make your team go.
Going down hills driving a sled at full speed will make adults scream like little girls.
It is nice to have someone cook for you.
Sled dogs are wonderful animals.
The trails are beautiful.
Happy sled dogs will pee on your stuff, pee on your car and sometimes on your boots.
Don't forget the dog cookies.
You will never regret going on a White Wilderness sled dog trip.
