Yukon Quest 2017 Start!

The Gang was scheduled to depart at 11:36 am on Saturday, February 4th.  Temperatures were well below zero in downtown Whitehorse – to keep the dogs warm and calm, Dave usually spends time with individual Gang Members inside the truck.  After a moisturizing salve is applied to each foot, boots are put on and team members are harnessed.  Once all 14 dogs are harnessed and bootied, Dave and his crew start building the team.
