I wanted to mention that Alex Beebe-Giudice, a Voyageur Crew Member of 3 years, is mushing dogs this winter.  Being from Maryland he decided to stay in the area to experience a real winter adventure.  He is working as a dog handler for a sled dog kennel on the shore near Grand Marais.  He takes care of the dogs by feeding them, cleaning up after them, and running them.  Before there was snow he would have them pull weight around, sometimes a 4-wheeler, now he runs them on the trails and prepares them for upcoming races.  He will probably even get to mush his own team at a race this winter.  We’re so happy for him and his opportunity to be a real Dog Musher.
