Musher Q & A
Sprint racing in Austria.
We choose each name individually. Senna was named after Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, because the tougher the conditions were, the better he did. Fernando was named after the ABBA song, we liked the lyrics so far as dog mushing goes. Nigel is named after the XTC song, 'Making Plans for Nigel'. Rambler, 'Midnight Rambler' by the Stones, (the live version played on the radio and that was 'it'), and so on.
I entered because our dogs look good. As for goals, of course I have goals but I'm not going to tell anybody.
I always look forward to seeing Mike Sager at Trout Creek. Mike opened the cabin for all mushers. There's always a warm cabin, hot water and plenty of parking for the dog teams. I don't know if he's still doing it but I sure hope to see him this year.
