Iditarod – Turning Heads Kennel

The Iditarod was another example of school learning becoming real.  Chase had completed a term paper on the Iditarod and he had a chance to meet the youngest musher in 2013: Travis Beals is only 21 years old.  His kennel, Turning Heads Kennel is smaller and more intimate than the more established teams.  Travis was positively enthusiastic when he shared his passion with us.  It was the perfect place to interact with all the generations of dog:  retired, current racers and 4-day-old puppies.  Travis explained about the sled and the equipment before we were treated to a training ride (on a wheeled cart) through the woods.

On March 1, 2014, the opening date of the 2014 race, we will be writing Chase and together we will be cheering for Travis.

One thought on “Iditarod – Turning Heads Kennel

  1. Hi Chase! Thanks for the great write up on my tour! I hope you had fun. Iditarod 2014 was a tough one for me. There wasn’t a whole lot of snow out there and the dogs ended up catching a bug so we had to scrap our racing plans. I was REALLY proud of them though because they worked through it and we made it to the finish line. I don’t think I’ve ever been prouder of my dogs :D

    This year, we’ll have two teams enter in the race. We are definitely excited!
    Hope you are doing well. I loved seeing the photos you posted :)
