Wild Eyed Tsuga Weekend!

After our successful "Wild & Free Weekend" last October, we thought we'd add a couple more mushers to the mix, so this year we'll have Brent Sass of Wild & Free Mushing, Mike Ellis of Team Tsuga Siberians and Hugh Neff of Laughing Eyes Kennel visiting Central Oregon for a weekend.

Come join us the weekend of 10/31 - 11/02 2014 in La Pine, OR. for a few days of running dogs, camping, good food and good company. We're located in Oregon's vast pine forest and our property borders public land with literally 100s of miles of forest trails.

Brent, Mike and Hugh will be available for questions and advice about anything sled dogs as well just a relaxed chat by the campfire. In short: good times! Click here for pictures of last year's event and a nice write-up by Carol Pepsick here (scroll past the white Siberian).

A couple of changes for this year:

- Food for everyone will be taken care of by Cow Camp Cookin' & BBQ of La Pine, OR.
Catering is sponsored by Pawsatch Mushing, UT

- Depending on truck/trailer size, there will be room for about 15 teams this year.

- Trail maps and signs will be available.

As mentioned, we have room for ~ 15 trucks along with camping gear. There are restroom/shower facilities on the property along with a heated space which can be used as a common area, hang-out or sleeping area. There is also a small kitchen with stove, microwave and oven plus two refrigerators. There are several water sources on the property, cell phone/wifi connectivity and a hot tub. In case of wet weather, we can use our workshop to keep out of the rain dry equipment. Last year's weather was upper 10s and low 20s overnight, mid 60s during the day and dry throughout the weekend.

This will be a rain or shine event.
