Your zipper is down and I can’t help but smile

North to the Klondike

I have been negligent in my blogging duties. I have done some really cool trips recently that I have failed to share. I went mushing in Fairbanks and wore my Go Pro for the first time, and managed to film my crash - nice. I went to Minnesota and Seattle and saw the land of 10,000 rubber duckies. And … [Read more...]
