Alaska

Hey ya'll! I arrived in Alaska last night around 11pm.


Talk about darkness!!!

I get up at 7:30am and it's still pitch dark out.

Come 9:30am it starts to get lighter out. Something to adjust to!


Here some links- I'll be posting more often on my facebook page.. you can follow me on Facebook at Taylor Steele Racing .

Also - I was just on TV a couple days ago and they are STILL showing it. How awesome!

And on mushing radio!

What to do, what to do

L-R Cypress, Maple, Barkley, Cedar, Possum, Bamboo, Oakleigh. In the back L-R are Aspen (husky colored one) and Sierra. The black dog is our pet Macy :)



Puppies are doing great and growing up pretty rapidly. Ready to leave soon. Will be sad. Love these puppies. Wish I could have all the puppies in the world! Keeping Aspen, Cyphress, and Bamboo.

Days 14 and 15 - Had a great time!


August 24th- day 14 :'(

I really do not want to go home. This sucks! However, I had the most enjoyable time ever working at Ididaride. Hooking up dogs a dozen times a day, scooping dogs, feeding and watering dogs, talking to some cool people, working with the most interesting crew, staying with the worlds most amazing family. I could not have done this without Dan and Shirley Seavey. They offered me to stay with them so I could have the opportunity to come back up. Which I thank them so much. They are wonderful people and have such a wonderful family. I'll miss those "cottonpickin'" sayin's he uses and watching F Troop and Abbott and Costello with him. I really miss Shirley's cooking and baking. Drinking their such strong coffee will always be a memory. I had so much fun. It was by far one of my best nights there.

August 25th - day 15 :"(

Most horrible day of my life. Do not want to go home. Why do I have to come home? This IS home. Home is in Alaska. *sigh*. Eating my first bites of burritos, moose meat, veggie stir fry when I don't like veggies, yummy mice (halibut), I could go on. This was by far the best experience of my life so far. I hope to be back this winter to race Jr. Iditarod. If I don't, I can't come back until next summer which would break my heart so much. So.. I WILL be back in the winter to train. Again.. all thanks goes to the Seavey family, for being such amazing people.


I arrived home around 12:30pm Sunday, August 26th. Times are tough now.. the time difference sucks. I miss my friends. Bright side? Puppies. 



Puppies!



Hugo 
Bolt

Hugo - The dog that started my adventure in life. I got a golden retriever puppy for Christmas the year Snow Buddies came out. I later had a litter of golden retriever, black lab and norwegian elkhound mix puppies, who later had puppies to an alaskan husky/siberian husky, whose puppy later had puppies to a dog we bought. Nine puppies! Thank you Hugo!

Days 12 and 13



August 22nd and 23 - Days 12 and 13

Wednesday the 22nd, long day at work! Had some halibut? or bean pasta for dinner :D Then biked to Safeway for some powdered sugar and then went to the beach. Very neat and very cold water. Very cold.
