    Thanks for the vid CW. Too bad you didn't get as far as planned but you will! That happend to me one year. I got about a fifth of the way through a 88 km (55 mile) trip and for reasons (not physical) I decided to turn around. The following year I came back and completed it and it was almost more rewarding. How many miles did you actually go?

    Ouch, hard on the feet. Maybe you should go barefoot like Survivalist Cody Lundin, that would toughen your dogs.
    35 miles is pretty good and probably a good learning experience with your gear and techniques.

    Sorry to hear about your daughter. Maybe it was fate that you had to go home. Hope she recovers well.
