The Powers Pack on the Speaking Circuit.


The month of April held some new experiences for The Powers Pack. Mushing season was over for us on the Eastern Shore of Md. but we had great fun meeting new friends and talking about our experiences this year. At the beginning of April I was honored to be the featured speaker at the Ocean City Chapter of the Sons of Italy. Speaking to some 80 adults my focus was on stressing that it’s never too late to live your dream as long as you are willing to do what it takes to make it happen.

At the end of the month the Pack and I went to The Salisbury School to take part in their Global Awareness Day which featured Canada. Since my heritage is French Canadian it was a delight for me to speak about Canada and about how mushing helps me connect to my French Canadian roots. The dogs were thrilled to spend the day at school and they got to make lots of new friends. One special friend was Margy Meeks the school’s librarian who organized Global Awareness Day. Here she is with us on stage as she and Kevin helped quiet the dogs during my presentation.

Happy Trails!

  1. Linda, I really enjoyed reading the last Mushing Bulletin and seeing these pictures and this account from you. I don’t know if Kev mentioned it, but he has a new follower. My daughter’s mother-in-law was incapacitated during the winter with a problem foot, so I started forwarding the bulletins to her. She got a great kick out of them and looked forward to them while she was unable to get out of the house. I know this last one was a special treat for her.
    Thanks, and I hope we can see you guys sometime before your next foray into the frozen tundra.

    • Hi Bill, So happy you are enjoying the reports on our adventures. Would love to see you and Betty Ann. Please come spend some time with us on the shore and meet the Pack in person! We have lots of room!
