North Wapiti Siberian Husky Kennels
Yukon Quest/Iditarod 2006 - Tent Fund

On November 8, 2005 I went down to the post office and got a WONDERFUL surprise in the mail. However the people listed below were able to secretly work together and come up with the 'Ramstead Tent Fund', I shall never know.

First off, I wasn't aware that anyone, other then one or two individuals, were even aware that we were struggling to find the money to buy an Arctic Oven tent for my 36 hour layover in Dawson! And I must confess, it is a bit scary that they are willing and able to conspire behind my back so well and so secretly!

From the bottom of my heart, thanks to all of them that put the money together - they raised well over half the price for us and I was able to order the tent later that day! Our followers are the greatest! Thanks again!

Many, MANY thanks to them and all of our sponsors. *WE* are their biggest fans!

Many possibilities for what was delaying Karen ran thru her fans' heads
during the 2006 Iditarod...after we knew she was safe, someone remarked
that perhaps the delay was being used as an opportunity to field test the
tent purchased for the Yukon Quest.
