I was just about to say look how big Mac Daddy is compared to Sandy!! I know he is huge so she is probably regular size! They all look fantastic and should be pulling into Rainy Pass any time now! Go SPK Red Team....we love ya!!

Excellent pics from behind the scenes. The sled in the conference room with all the stuff laid out is great. Just like me when I pack for a long backcountry hiking trip. OK....well....with many, many additional considerations. Such as 16 dogs and their well being.
