Will you be stickin' with me when the money's gone?

Oh, Christ.
Before I get into that, let me just preface by saying that things are good here. Sam's back, Roy's butter farts are lingering, training is going well, and the weather is cold and clear.
With that being said, I repeat: Oh, Christ.
I signed up for the Yukon Quest 300 on Friday. It's official. I'm nervous already. There's so much to think about, I can't imagine how I'll be when it's time to do the 1,000-mile version. Follow the link below to see my hilarious profile and gorgeous self-portrait. I must get back to chopping fish and cutting up pork fat. Yes, my life is glamorous.
Peace

Upon request, I added a donation button over to the right. We'll see how this goes, but really, I'm not expecting much. I will list sponsors on my blog and anyone who donates will get something in return. In the near future I will be making signed photos, t-shirts, bumper stickers ("Honk if you love tail - Spitfire Kennel, Fairbanks, AK") and also, I will be offering a guided trip at the end of the season for a couple lucky sponsors. So, here we go.
