Reflectra Candy Purple Twilight

Yes, that's what the color is called which our latest customer chose for her cart.
Our friends at Embee Performance outdid themselves with this one.
Outstanding job once again, turning a steel frame into a piece of art.

Our fall travel schedule is filling up.
We're going to make the long trek up north to visit the "Pretty Sled Dogs" of Karen Ramstead's North Wapiti Kennel in Alberta, Canada from September 10th - 12th.

In October, we're going to attend NWSDA's opening race of the season in Cle Elum, WA. This is going to be the weekend of October 9th - 10th.

And in November it's an annual tradition to attend Karen Yeargain's La Pine Mushing Weekend on Veteran's Day, November 12th - 14th.

As always, we can deliver a cart in person if you're located anywhere along the way, which in these cases is mostly I-15, I-5 and US-97.

Just make sure you place your order early enough for us to have it finished in time for the trip.

Any questions? Contact us for details.

8-dog Siberian Team with Arctis Cart

A short video clip of one of our recent runs at Fairview Park in Costa Mesa CA.

For the past week, summer has had a grip on southern CA and we haven't been able to run the dogs, but hopefully, the marine layer will keep the coastal areas cool again soon and we'll be back on the trails.

In the meantime, remember that dryland season is coming up and cart orders keep coming in.
If you're looking for a new cart, please contact us asap so we can fulfill the order before winter starts....gee, we're talking winter already???

Also, another free delivery offer for mushers in California, Oregon and Washigton.
It looks like we'll attend NWSDA's first race of the season October 9th & 10th in Cle Elum, WA.
If you're interested in a new cart and live somewhere along I-5 or US-97, let us know and we'll arrange free in-person delivery.
You're also most welcome to see us in Cle Elum and try one of our carts or just say "hi".

Please contact us for details.
