Piia helped with the paperwork and the bibs while Julien was on the parking lot where the teams were getting ready. About 10 teams took part in this race since many other mushers were at the Copper Basin 300.
It's pretty interesting to watch the mushers getting ready, you usually learn a lot just by watching. After the start, we went to a crossroad where Piia helped stoping the cars for the mushers and Julien took pictures. Then we went back to the checkpoint to check and learn how experienced musher deal with checkpoint chores.
On Sunday we took advantage of the good trail conditions to do our first run behind the mountain which sit at the back of our backyard. The area is quite nice, full of hills and with low vegetation, the dogs, Piia and me enjoyed a lot!
During the beginning of the week the weather went crazy and we had some rain, then in the middle of the week we got -15C, no need to tell you that driving to town was quite an adventure!
