The Iditarod is this weekend and Grammy Turek is here helping out, enjoying the event, and keeping Hank giggling. Last weekend we geared up Henry for winter backpacking and took a spin around the bog in hopes of troubleshooting anything unexpected before his excursions to the Iditarod festivities. It all went well, though we'll need to adjust the hand and foot warmth. Easy. One truth we discovered is that he can very easily sleep while in the backpack, which is a plus. We'll see how long he lasts Sunday in Willow.
Henry is ready to be sent to Indiana, Coloma, or Sheridan, as he must have overheard our chatter about summer and fall trips. He's ready to be shipped out now.
