Recently turned "9 years old" Max was the 9 month old class clown on the trails this morning :)

Ok Max, let us review improper versus proper skijoring form.

1) Improper...
"Hey little bro - wanna play tackle football?" suggests Max to Zorro as we fly along the trail.
"No! I want to skijor!" responds Zorro to his big brother pest :)
2) Proper...
What perfect form! Out-stretched & sprinting Siberians - beautiful!

Ok Max, with that review of improper vs proper form - ready to go? Apparently not as today's short skijor clip showcases class clown Max. Watch as we are flying along the trail until "Max the puppy" decides to start dorking with Zorro (and "Zorro the adult" wants nothing to do with it). I am able to "ahh, ahh" Max out of each incident to prevent a tackle event on the trail; but it is still a hilarious short stretch of perfectly improper skijoring :)

Far back in French Gulch and time to turnaround...
"Ok, turning..." says happy Zorro.
"Really, already?" states shocked Max.

A little more fun from the clown... He has seen Zorro eat snowcones many times while Max usually rolls snow angels to cool off himself. But, why not put the two together?
"Rub a dub dub, chomp chomp chomp - rolling snow angels while eating snowcones!"
demonstrates the very talented Max.

A morning of mostly proper skijoring with a little "Max the class clown" mixed in for humor: 8.2 miles traveled with 950 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 85 days on the trails covering 724.8 miles with 76650 feet of elevation climbed.
