    Judy , I just finished pushing snow for the 15th time this winter. The snow banks at the house are nearly as high as Katahdin, just a bump compared to Mckinley, but enough is enough. Can hardly wait to cross the bridge in Kittery.

    Mary, the young one is a Devil dog as well.

    We have some free time that week and would love the opportunity to train with you guys. Just let me know what your plans are and what I can do to help you out.

    Hey Van,

    If you have that much snow over there, I'll meet you on your way back and you can take my sleds back to Maine. They haven't been ridden since we moved from Maine in Oct, '03. Seems whereever they go....it stops snowing. So, If you want to make it stop snowing there, these sleds need to go with you.

    heheheheeheh,

    Ron
    Don't take training sessions too lightly. And don't forget, after all, that they are training sessions for the handler as well as the dog.

    Ron, I'll pay the shipping............send them quick. When are you coming back to Maine to play anyway?

    Kathryn, I will try to contact you when we get there the first of the week.

    Hey, Ron!! The trails for snowmobiling here are drop dead gorgeous.. We are in snow up to our necks....and now, there is a crust that will support a moose

    Have you thought, possibly, of driving just West a little .. to run some of the "WI & MN Winter Informals" ? You are a day closer than I !!!

    ..."Can hardly wait to cross the bridge in Kittery..."

    Usually it's the other way around....as in, coming back into the State!

    "Ranger" and "Sebec" ...are sitting at the end of the driveway with their luggage ???? Is it possible that they read your thread ?

    The deal is....you HAVE to bring lots of good weather back with you!!! ..of the Spring type! PLEEEEEEZE.... !

    Have to go "retrieve" the retrievers ..and all their "stuff"...regards, LOL

    Judy, I just happen to have room for them.............I should be going by around noon tomorrow. I will need extra towels in case they get wet while we are away.

    I'm sure I will appreciate the bridge just as much when I'm on my way home.

    Van if you decide to take them you would not need to go south for training. The fields would be wind blown and clear to train. My neighbors should really pay me to keep them so they don't need to shovel and snow blow. I did enjoy the trail on the Sebasticook below my house back there.

    Judy,

    I would love to go for the winter fun in Minn but my boy Willy is away at school in Texas. Freighter and Belle would surely like to take a road trip but my job owns my life fight now which is why Willy is South for the winter (and maybe more)

    Enjoy the trip South Van, Drive careful and buckle up. Bisquits to the dogs.
