The tour didn't seem to be very structured. There was too much talk about intimate, personal things, in my opinion. I was thoroughly convinced by Lance's dedication to dog - both his and others - which I think is his strength.
We got to hold the puppies, meet the dogs and learn about the kennel. It was awesome! Lance spent time with us sharing - we loved it!
I wished I would have had more time with Lance personally as he had to be gone for most of the time I was there. I did enjoy my visit and I did get a few minutes with Lance at the end of the time I was there. Here's to 2017 Iditarod. Go get em'! Pat Clark
I couldn't have possibly expected nearly as much as Lance and his helpers delivered. I am somewhat of a fangirl, having lived in Fbx for 20yrs, but my guests from Australia has no clue who they were meeting until I told them on the way there. Even then, they had no idea what to expect. Lance was so gracious with his time and so generous with his conversation - I do believe it was one of the highlights, top 5 at least, of their entire month-long Alaska trip! I can't thank you enough, nor can I brag on your enough to do you justice. I give 10 stars! I appreciate what yu gave to my visitors more than you will ever know.
