    Went dog sledding today


    Stayed at a bed and breakfast in Bethel, ME

    Went on a 15 mile ride, 2 sleds, 8 dogs each

    It was cold as hell, but a great experience.

    It was a birthday gift, my girl Stephanie and I went.

    Dont know where they are based out of, but Id guess yes, Bethel. It was a surprise to me untill we pulled up and they started taking the dogs out.

    Love my 848's, my 1198 Corse for the street is too much. Im thinking of selling it.

    I think we averaged about 9 mph. Hit a top speed run of about 20 mph and the dogs were as happy as could be. They loved it more than us humans....

    We have a German dude that trains his sled team during the summer using the trails we're cutting out at our woodlots. Pretty cool too - he ties 'em up to his ATV and they pull him with it not running. Quite the site to see...

    Yes, these dogs were well loved and well behaved. They were also very friendly.

    It was a pretty good birthday surprise!

    We had a bunch of us out there one weekend, kids/SO's, etc. We were fuckin' around on the ATV's, cutting trails, drinking and cooking out. He & his team were going by and the dogs stopped dead in their tracks when they went by the grills and caught a wiff. Funny shit...he couldn't get them moving again...

    The lady friend would go crazy over something like this. Looks like there's an outfit out of Jackson, NH... but $300 for a two hour tour seems pricey.

    Haha sorry, I was just hoping someone might know of a slightly cheaper option out there. She would absolutely love it and her Bday is the end of Feb.

    Think about what it costs to raise & train, compete & maintain those dog teams. You'd find the cost staggering...

    No worries bud, I really was only saying that half heartedly. I figured it would be around that dollar figure...

    It was fun tho!
