Jack Russell on the Colorado Trail
I have a four year old male Jack Russell named Takoda. He's been on many hikes and backpacking trips with me. We run a min of five miles five days a week and he always keeps up, he's also climbed many of the Colorado 14ers (the mountains over 14 thousand feet). This July (of 2013) I'm planning to backpack the Colorado trail through. It will be about 500 miles and take roughly 5 weeks and want I to take Takoda with. What are peoples opinions on this? Does anyone think that's too much on a JRT?
I do have a nice little synthetic jacket and boots for him because he also comes backcountry snowboarding with me and loves it! And again he always keeps up and then some! Also at night he sleeps in my bag with me so staying nice and warm is never a problem.
