So how many of you have a GPS? We take our dogs out with us with ours all the time! It's so nice to have when hiking with the girls out in the woods! We also do Geocaching! If you don't know what that is, check it out! It's a ton of fun!
Anyway, I read this story today and was just amazed. #1 Rule of Sled Dogging, NEVER LET GO OF THE SLED!!!! heheh This musher feel asleep while driving his sled and his team just took of into the distance. Could you imagine! That would be so scary!!
The musher was fortunately picked up by another team, and he assumed once he got into the next checkpoint that someone would have his dogs, but when he got there, No dogs were found!! His entire team, sled and all was still missing!
All sleds are fitted with GPS technology now, so they tracked the sled and headed towards, it with worry and fear for the dogs. If lines get tangled and no one is around, the dogs might fight and get hurt! Or if they went over an edge, there are so many things that could happen to them!
They went out twice and tried to find the dogs. . and finally. . they saw the sled tipped over in the deep snow. . and there were all the dogs. . right in line, not tangled, sound asleep! The musher uprighted his sled, and got them going and went back to town.
Isn't that just amazing! Go read the full article at the link above. It's a good read!
