How to Race Sled Dogs in the Iditarod : Putting Sled Bags on the Sled for a Dog Race


Hi! I’m Lachland Clarke on behalf of Expert
Village. I would like to invite you to visit our website at www.teamclarke.org. Oh, I’m
just putting the sled bags on. Normally, that’s the beauty. When we get up to Montana we just
run out of the yard. We won’t have to do this every time. But we’ve got to take the
sled bags off because it would be too hard on them. You know. So for transports, you
have to take them off. Yeah, it’s a real pain in the neck but this is what we have
to do. What does a sled bag provide? It’s just like a backpack. You know. Like right
now we’re not going on any trips. You know, we’re not camping or anything like that.
I think in all honesty rarely is your sled going to have more than 60 or 70 pounds in
it of total gear. How much does a sled weigh empty? You know to be honest with you I’ve
never weighed it. Probably 30 or 40 pounds, something like that. About as much as a saddle.
