We were looking In the paper for cabins to rent and trying to find Wendy's number. Wendy is a lady I talked to before the trip about using her cabin.
We finally got a hold of Wendy and decided to go check out her place. So we dropped the dogs, unhooked the trailer and left Terrance there to supervise. Myself and Terry ventured on to find this cabin.
We had to go through the canyon along this winding road for 10 miles. We saw a creek that was far from frozen with a dozen ducks still swimming around!
We came across a van pulled over in the deep snow. So we pulled over to see if he was stuck and needed help. Turns out he was just getting to ice off his windshield. He asked where we were headed and we said we were looking for a cabin. He said "is that Wendy's cabin". We said yes, turns out he is Wendy's ex husband.
Pierre ended up showing us where to go and we made it to the cabin. It's just below tree level and lots of space. The cabin itself is pretty nice too. It has a wood stove and needs a generator for power, and it has a lovely little outhouse out back with half doors, so you can see danger sneaking up on you while you poop.
We agreed that this is the best location for us. So we headed back to town to get Terrance, the dogs, and some groceries.
On our way back to the cabin we came across 10 dog teams running down the road. Obviously this is the spot to be for training!
We got to the cabin, unloaded just about everything and made ourselves at home. Terry started on lunch while we figured out where everything was.
We then started on the drop bags, labelling everyone with my name, the checkpoint and the Yukon quest at the bottom. It took quite a bit of time because they had to be block letters and we went through a bunch of markers.
By the time we were done it was time for dinner and time to let the dogs out. I left them out for a few hours, Kita is still not eating great. Tonight she finally ate some chicken. Terry made us ground hamburger and gravy with baked potato.
We got the kibble into each checkpoint drop bag, set up our cots and got ready for bed. It's going to be a long day tomorrow finishing up the drop bags! Hopefully things go smoothly tomorrow, we don't have any spare time!
