Day Two in Duluth with the Vaseline Dry Skin Patrol


This weekend the Vaseline Dry Skin Patrol was in Duluth, Minnesota for the John Beargrease Dog Sled Marathon.  We were rescuing dry skin in the most extreme weather!  Duluth isn't the warmest place to visit at the end of January.  That was my biggest concern, freezing to death.  I knew my skin would be protected because of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion so that left me to worry about the temps.

See for yourself.

This is a view from my room of Lake Superior....frozen.

Yep, frozen.  There was so much snow that even my balcony had about 7 inches on it!

We arrived to town on Thursday so we could unpack and unwind for the big weekend.  We were able to walk around downtown Duluth checking out the local restaurants and gift shops.  It was very relaxing!  It prepared us for the crazy weather on Friday.  We made the journey to John Stetson's house in the middle of nowhere for a dog sledding lesson and to meet the dogs.  John Stetson is a legend in Duluth for his dog sledding.  He's a top notch musher!  I was really excited to meet him after learning all this dog sledding history that was all around him.

Yes, we were in a white out there for a bit.

We were all bundled up meeting the dogs and learning the ropes of dog sledding.  This is where I started to get nervous.  I mean, come on, I'm going to stand on ski looking sticks while holding onto a basket with very fast dogs running all over the place.  That's enough to make anyone nervous!  Right?

At least my skin look fabulous, right?
