When you have a Michigan address people from the East Coast or the West Coast always comment that they are from or have family from the Midwest and say they "know what it is like". I don't know what goes on in Ohio, Indiana, or Illinois but I'd be willing to bet there are not a lot of 200 mile sled dog races. Officially, I call my region, the Superior Land and officially I met the mascot for the U.P. 200.
What's that you ask? Oh, just me hanging out with a celebrity sled dog friend. What? Your YMCA does not sell post swim sled dog hats? Shame really. Fashionable and functional. So how does one view a sled dog race in style and comfort?
It sure is something. I can't really imagine setting forth on a 200 mile journey at 8:00 p.m. in my minivan much less on a sled pulled by a team of dogs. They must be very brave and have a lot of hot cocoa. That reminds me, I forgot to tell you I am also wearing my mittens. I am holding on to my Snoopy dog, wearing my mittens. I insist on wearing my mittens whenever out. "I need to wear my mittens or my hands will get freezy".Wow that was an exciting event. Thanks to my Dad for keeping me warm. Warm and Snuggly.
