Iditarod 2010: Black Team Update

Just because we've been focused on the Red Team's finish this morning doesn't mean we aren't keeping track of the Black Team!

Allen and 12 dogs checked into Elim at 10:30 this morning, so we're betting they're close to wrapping up a nice rest before heading out through Golovin to White Mountain. They will have a mandatory 8-hour rest there, so they should be in pretty good shape for the final push into Nome sometime tomorrow afternoon.

Bridgett has been talking about driving a snow machine out to meet him in White Mountain, so we may have a first-hand report in store for you. Stay tuned!

Go Allen! I've been keeping tabs on the black team and it seems like they consistently stayed about 100 miles behind Aliy for much of the way. What a nice surprise for Allen if he should get to see Bridgett at White Mountain. I wouldn't mind the firsthand report, either. :)

Great for Allen! We are all watching for his finish to Nome!
Go Black Team!!!

It's so neat having Allen's Black Team to follow as well as Aliy's Red Team. We are seeing the dogs that will someday end up on Aliy's team. Look forward to seeing when you finish, Allen and if Ranger is still with you!
