“December’s wintery breath is already clouding the pond, frosting the pane, obscuring summer’s memory…” ― John Geddes

Yes, we have made it to December…and have had a very busy two months, re-acclimating to normal schedules and activities after  our September  journey.  It has been delightful to see how many folks have checked in to the blog, to read our 4-section trip report.  Our blog viewership is reaching record numbers! We are thankful to the SylvanSport group for sharing our posts. It will be fun next spring, as we have four scheduled events at which we will be meeting with people to talk about our trip, and how we successfully managed with the GO trailer.

November has been pretty typical weather for Vermont. We started off the month enduring a massive windstorm, resulting in multi-day power losses. Thankfully our camping gear allowed us to survive without too many issues.

Hunting season is nearly over, and we have been out in the woods for hiking, microspiking, and snowshoeing….each dog was thrilled to once again romp in snow! Canoeing season ended on November 14th; I spent 114 days on the water, and at least 14 of those days were safely possible due to my Mythic Gear dry suit. There were a few additional days I may have been able to get out, but it seemed that if the sun was shining, the wind was howling…or the ice was getting too thick! The fact that I was able to paddle one day, and go snowshoeing the next, made for an easier adjustment period.


After my rather wordy blog posts about the Banff trip, this month I have opted for a more visual post. I hope you enjoy this short slideshow of our November adventures, and that you will check us out once we post more reports of snowshoeing, skijoring, kicksledding, and winter cabin camping.

Our Facebook page is Vermont Paddle Pups, twitter is @VTPaddlePups.  We also post in http://www.tubbssnowshoes.com in the ambassador blog, and on http://www.trailspace.com for gear reviews.  We are very appreciative of all the support we have received from these two companies.

Enjoy…and Think Snow!
