An absolutely perfect "pass on by" from young Jack on his first skijor encountering dog sled teams on the trail! Flawless!
|Note the dog sled and 8 dog team behind the people as Zorro & Jack execute a flawless "pass on by".|
Today's video is the counterpart to the perfect pass photo above. Come along as we are flying along the fast trail and come upon a stopped team. This was young Jack's first ever pass by a dog team. Watch as I shorten the gangline "just in case" but no need. Just a little verbal "go" encouragement from me and Zorro & Jack pass on by perfectly. Nice job young Jack and nice leadership veteran Zorro! Believe me, Zorro's first attempted "pass on by" did NOT go this smoothly :)

More fun encountering teams on the trails:
|We are paused on a side trail to watch another 8 dog team go by the trail in front of us.|
"Hi friends!" say Zorro & Jack.
|Draw a straight line from Zorro to the trees and you can just make out the musher and dogs|
we are chasing on the trail. It sure felt like we were closer than this photo implies!
|"He's fun but such a goof!" states happy Zorro.|
"Cooling my jets! Rub a dub dub!" demonstrates silly Jack.
