AVIEMORE.. SCOTLAND

Post by Blustag » Tue Jan 18, 2011 7:52 pm

Jenny (Blufawn) and myself will be travelling up to Aviemore (in the Highlands of Scotland) on Thursday returning next Monday if there is anyone up there would like to meet up let us know. We are going to the largest gathering of Huskies in the country for their top race which is held high up in the Cairngorms. There will be all the sled dogs there including Huskies, Alaskan Malamute, Samoyeds, Canadian Eskimo Dogs, Greenland Dogs and others. There is a weight pull competition being held on the Friday which is always great fun. Sat and Sun are the sled dog races. There promises to be lots of snow this week so everyone will have to take their sleds along instead of the usual 3 wheeled rig which is used for dryland racing. Consequently I will be offline until I get back so please bare with me.

We arrived at 8:30 this morning and it was a busy place, so many sled dogs together with no trouble kicking off

by around 10:30 the sun came out and the place was very busy, if anyone is heading up tomorrow (sunday) get there before 9am if you want to park the car. Some stunning dogs there

may head up again tomorrow as our 3 enjoyed being around others they have never seen so many similar to themselves in one place

You can hear the howling miles away :D

I have many more but finding the time to shrink them down to 256kb is the problem

(The file is too big, maximum allowed size is 256 KiB.)

sorry I havent been on in a while, part of our roof colapsed due to the weight of heavy snow back on Nov 30th so we have been busy with that and other household problems

will try and post more pics later

Just got back tonight and so sorry to have missed you Roy with your gang. Yes it was fab and the hotel was lovely instead of camping on the ground with all that howling :lol: sounds just like home :lol: Met lots of old friends and made a few new ones. Will put some pics up tomorrow if I have a minute.

We use Pixresizer http://bluefive.pair.com/

It allows you to shrink more than one at a time, you can shrink whole files if you wish in one go.
