Our first "hover husky trio" shot. Impressive guys! :)

It was worth the wait, as I was right that these are perfect trails to train Rudy (and even Jack) how to really uncork the skijoring engine. Proof? Well, we hit a top speed of 20 MPH today on these trails. This was both Jack & Rudy's first 20 MPH skijor. Wow. I knew it would come to Jack soon, but 20 MPH already for Rudy? This kid is a sled dog machine!
Back when Rudy was only 6 months old, I took him for a short jog/run by himself. When I was done, I told Nancy, "My goodness, this kid has a stride like I've never seen before. He is beyond impressive and will be a monster on the trails!" Well, I was right, Rudy is impressively smooth at his young age. Imagine as he continues to mature!
Come along for today's fast & fun video clip as we are flying along the groomed trails at Gold Run Nordic Center. Zorro has topped 24 MPH by himself on this trail before and Max & Zorro had topped 27 MPH. So, I expect us to keep setting speed records for Jack & Rudy on this terrain as the 2 continue to grow and mature. Zoom!

We are still taking lots of breaks when young Rudy is with. You know what that means?
|"Stopped.... Rolling..." demonstrates silly Jack.|
"He's a goof! Are you sure I am the young one?" asks Rudy.
"Why stopped, look at the fresh snow in front of us!" declares Zorro.
|"We are VERY proud of ourselves!" say the fast & furious trio :)|
Our first "hover husky trio" and, impressively, our first 20+ MPH outing with the youngsters: 3.1 miles traveled and a top speed of 20 MPH.
2018/2019 Season to Date: 16 days on the trails covering 80.4 miles with 7350 feet of elevation climbed.
