Well, against my better judgement, I have to announce that the Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race will take place next year January 14-16, 2010 (Thursday thru Saturday). The race president just announced the dates on the Eagle Cap Extreme website.
There's a bright side to this--a really cool video shot by Oregon Public Broadcasting's Oregon Field Guild team last January. You can watch it here.
I just cringe at the thought of all those dogs here in Joseph Oregon for the vet checks on Wednesday, Jan 13th. . .too much noise--all those barking, happy mutts!
So our Joseph bed and breakfast guests in January 2010 could have the chance to see the start of the race, or the end, or attend the Mushers Ball. Or they could get really crazy and become a volunteer. Guess they need a lot of folks to put this thing on.
I don't think she's taken any reservations for January yet. If you just have to see the action, the Bronze Antler Bed & Breakfast in Joseph Oregon might just be the ticket. Give her a call at 866-520-9769. She'll be happy to make your reservation.
