Project Polar Bear Gear Pack Out

The below photo shows our smaller dogsleds used for lodge-based trips around Ely. They are now mere skeletons with their sled bags stored for the season.

Today we are packing out dogsledding camping gear for Project Polar Bear. Guide Dave Freeman, the director of Wilderness Classroom, is shown above making a repair to the brushbow of a big camping sled we are taking north.

brushbow repair, I wonder what that's about! Jason, perhaps you can explain how it broke!

Jarrod - Fast sleds and big trees... I think you know what I'm talking about. Ah, the adventure!!
