What an AMAZING adventure we had a Last Frontier Mushing Co-op! I went with a friend who had been mushing before and she said this experience by far blew the first one away! Certainly exceeded any expectations I could have had!!! Matt and Amanda’s property is off the grid, but the email they provide and the signage leading you down the drive off Chena Springs Rd makes it super easy to find! As soon as you drive up, you are greeting by the happy callings of the racing huskies. After chatting with Matt and Amanda for a bit, we went outside to meet the dogs! They are SO BEAUTIFUL!!! Then we got to learn how to/and then harness the dogs and place them on the sled line! Matt got us set up in the sled and then we were off!!! My friend said this ride was way longer than the first ride she had been out on... it was probably a good 40 minutes! We stopped about halfway to let the dogs roll around in the snow and take some pictures! Matt had won the Yukon Quest last year and placed second this year and then also raced his first Iditarod this year, so he was telling us racing stories and answered our many questions about how that all works. So much fun!!!! We got back and chatted a bit more and then parted ways. Matt and Amanda are so incredibly genuine and welcoming—we really appreciated how welcomed they made us feel and for the time they took to share their life and lives with us! Amanda even sent us a follow up email with pictures she had taken of us harnessing the dogs and getting out on our ride. I absolutely recommend their place if you are looking to meet some awesome people and awesome dogs on your Alaskan adventure!!! It is certainly one I will never forget! I will absolutely be back if I make it back to Fairbanks! Thanks so much again, guys!!!
