Arrowheaders --
FYI, my blog today is on David Heitkamp's frostbite saga. The Star Tribune will run the story I wrote on Heitkamp's Arrowhead experience this Sunday, March 18.

" ...the report of my death was highly exaggerated."


Pierre & Cheryl:

My Arrowhead story on the local blog. A couple of typos but for the most part a pretty good description of the ride.

Photos to be added soon....

Thanks for a great adventure. I still get asked questions about it every day. Maybe I don't realize the impact the ride had on other people.

Hopefully someday I will join Charlie on some Alaska rides. Until then, I still have a lot to learn.
