Duluth, MN

I love being in the woods with my dogs. I love winter camping and ice fishing in the boundary waters. I am a construction worker, and while at work, I’m always thinking about running my dogs. Nothing is more gratifying than being on the runners of my dogsled, not knowing where I’m going and how far I’m going, exploring new places and new trails—never knowing what new adventure awaits me when I pull the quick release and the thrill of taking off.
