The unstoppable Mud Dog snowmobile riders completed another journey, their 10th, in memory of Eric Skogman to benefit Rein In Sarcoma, February 7-8. The ride started in Anoka on the Rum River and the group, following local snowmobilers Justin and Dustin, rode the river for about seven miles until it opened up. The group then diverted onto the trail system. Low snow made the ride rough, including a jostling experience on a open field.
The group of five, including Justin and Dustin, stopped at the Mystic Inn in Princeton for lunch. There, the group split up, with Justin and Dustin heading south and the rest of the crew heading north to Onamia. The farther north they rode, the better (and more snow-covered) the trails became. By the time they got near Mille Lacs, the trail became a magic white carpet. The group ended the day at Muggs of Mille Lacs in Wahkon, regaling their adventures.
This is the third year in the row that the group faced challenging snow conditions but the Mud Dog motto is "Press on regardless," and so they did.
Over $2400 was raised towards Rein in Sarcoma's Mission through the Mud Dog Ride, including an anonymous Mud Dog challenge grant. Thanks to the Mud Dog participants and everyone who donated in support of the ride!
