Welcome to my personal little rest-stop on the information super-highway. These pages have been available on the internet for several years, and are one of the oldest web pages around that deal with racing sled dogs. I have finally gotten around to re-designing and re-writting them. It was long overdue. To put this in perspective, an early version of Mosaic was the state of the art web browser when these pages were originally authored.
So as you have guessed or already know, these pages deal with what I do for fun, i.e., mushing. Professionally I am a physicist by training, and have worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory for several years. Not that anyone should care of course. These pages are about the joy of running sled dogs.
The response I have gotten from these pages has been tremendous over the years, and I am happy to have been able to help many people interested in the sport or just starting out. These days, web pages like this are a dime a dozen, which is good (sometimes) for the new musher as lots of information is available at the click of your mouse. Most of us had to learn by trial and error. :-)
At one time I was collaborating with mushers from around the world to create a web site devoted to the junior musher and kids interested in the sport. While this lost momentum due to time constraints, mostly on me, I did collect a lot of useful information and wrote some useful articles. These can be found in the Junior Musher link in the index on the left.
But you are in New Mexico!, you say. It's too hot there!, you say. New Mexico? Is that part of the United States?, some say. Ha!, I say. I have been racing sled dogs in these parts for several years now. There are a variety of races in the southwestern and western part of the United States, including New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and California.
But enough of this. Let's get on with the show! I have tried to organize all of the information in a semi-logical order. To facilitate your navigation, I have provided an index to the information in the frame on the left. The information is sorted into a number of sections. Just select a topic of interest from the index to jump to that section. The index on the left is the global index to this website, and is always present. Generally speaking, links to other sites with considerable content launch a new browser window, leaving this one intact. As you go to some of the areas in these pages, other index frames may appear to facilitate navigation to a particular area of interest. The Dog Truck button will always return you here, to the main home page. I suggest you start with the navigation link, which explains in detail the index on the left and what information can be found where.
I hope you enjoy your stay!
