still miss her

sending a big hug out to all the marnie fans out there.
she taught me to live life with my eyes wide open, and with a big smile. but simple as that is, most days i still just end up with a long list of excuses why i haven't. so i'm hoping this anniversary is a catylst to wake up and try harder, and a remindar to have even half as much fun as she always did.
love you guys, jules

Quote of the day...

on the radio this morning, from a musher in the yukon quest race - he's referring to the extreme cold right now (50 below on the rivers where a lot of the racers are right now) -

'well this confirms that we dog mushers are not normal. but then again I don't know many Alaskans that are'

damn cold here again, but at least daylight has returned - it was light on my way to and from work last week. a photo from skijoring on the river with the gang this weeekend...

ferry trail

The thing about Fairbanks is the mountains are so close - only 2 hours, but so far away - why is it always so hard to get out of town? Well the girls and the dogs finally broke the barrier and headed down to the mountains for a day this weekend. The trail we wanted to explore was a bust - not enough snow (it's all been blown away) and it turned out to be a trapline anyways so not a good place with all our dogs. Still, we had a great day - incredibly sunny and denali was out...

River ski/bike

Sunglasses have returned, feels like spring here. love it!!

Dea skijoring with Caz. Skijoring with Caz can either be 1. a total blast - when she wants to run she's so incredibly fast and strong, or 2. the most frustrating thing in the world - when she's just being a punk ass puppy all she does is bark and bite your skitips...

dea and caz chasing me, but i wasn't much faster on my bike. note the new pick helmet, thanks mom!

the joys of skijoring with a 10 mo. puppy...

Stac, Tim, and I went to see the Michael Franti documentary last night. An incredible film, unique and powerful perspective on Iraq and Middle East issues - it's on tour now, a must see if it shows near you.
