On The Move

It’s been a long, painfully slow and frustrating couple of years.  But finally, after a mountain of paperwork, hours and hours of research and meetings, interviews, flights and worry, we have received that most fabled of documents – an American “Green Card”.

Following our 6 months in New Hampshire for the winter of 2004 – 2005, it became apparent to me that far from satisfying my desire for running dogs on snow , it had, in fact, only fanned the flames even more. Going back to training for UK dryland sprint racing in the mud of a Scottish autumn was the final straw. Since then, everything has been geared towards making that dream a reality.

In the summer of this year, we will move ourselves and our 18 dogs to Willow, Alaska.

It’s a huge change and one that we are looking forward with a mixture of excitement and trepidation.  I’m sure our dogs are in for a major surprise when training starts in the Matanuska Valley rather than the crowded trails of Deer Park, Elgin.

  1. Hi Peter & Joyce

    Well done both, on finally making your dream come true.

    Hope both of you and the doggies have the most fantastic life out in Alaska.

    Will think of you when we wet through and splattered in mud while out training at Deer Park
