Wild & Free Weekend!

Come join us for a weekend of running dogs, camping, bbq and good company from October 4th - 6th in central Oregon.

Why “wild & free”?
Yukon Quest and Iditarod veteran Brent Sass of Wild & FreeMushing will join the fun and is ready to answer your questions and give pointers about raising, training and running dogs, his racing experiences and the wild & free life in Alaska's wilderness.

This will be an informal, free flowing weekend with a small group (~10-12 teams) and there will be plenty of time to run the dogs, get some one-on-one time with Brent, and have a group of like minded folks to share experiences and our love for the sport. Brent will be glad to share his expertise and experiences, and yes, he'll bring plenty of pictures to share, too.

This weekend will be open to anyone interested in running dogs, no matter what size team you have, be it a full team of 16, a “sled pet” and a scooter, or no dogs and are just interested in the experience.

We can accommodate 10-12 trucks/trailers on the property. Final number will depend on the size of each team vehicle. We are located in central Oregon's vast pine forest, near the city of La Pine, and have direct trail access to public land (BLM, National Forest) with literally 100s of miles of forest trails. There is room for tents or campers, plus we have a separate guest space that could be shared by those that prefer more solid surroundings. Guest space also includes bathroom/shower and full kitchen with stove, microwave and fridge. There are several water sources for your dogs, a fire pit as well as a hot tub. We also have decent cell phone reception and wifi, if you need to be connected to the world.

Trails on the property can accommodate teams of all sizes. Large teams with carts and atv have a wide enough trail to access public lands right from the campsite. There's a fun, single track trail system right on the property for small teams with scooters, too.

This will be a rain or shine event. In case of wet conditions, we can dry out gear and equipment in our heated shop. Temperatures at that time of year average between 20s (overnight low) and 50s (daytime high).

All available spaces have been filled. Thanks to all who signed up!

Spots will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
