POLARDISTANS PROGRESS

Early November brought some colder temperatures so we set off for a weekend training. We enjoyed a fun few days of fresh air and being out on the trails during daylight hours. With the passenger rig loaded up to nearly 220kg the team managed a good 40km training on different terrains, hills and the occasional swamp. Here are some favourite moments from the weekend. .

This one is up there in our top ten favourite photo memories. Knowing when to rest on the trail is so important for preserving their energy.

Just us, our dogs and the trail. Perfect!

Just before they ploughed into the bog!

This picture was taken approaching a long down hill stretch into a giant bog swamp. The water smelt disgusting but the dogs thought it was great fun and ploughed straight through.
