Handler Crew heads North

Bob, Meghan and Moira headed towards the Circle Checkpoint at 4:45 AM this morning. Road conditions are unknown, so they are prepared to wait in the truck until Alaska D.O.T. opens the road over Eagle Summit.

Depending on both Yukon Quest trail and Alaska road conditions, it is unknown who will get to Circle Checkpoint first! Dog team or Handler Crew. It is almost comical to add more anxiety to an already stressful situation.

But, all humor aside, Allen and the Black Team are moving nicely down the Yukon River with temperatures below zero and the small village of Circle City as their next destination.

Stay tuned...

Thank you for your report. My bet in on the DOGS, not DOT trucks to win the race.

Back here in CT, the Governor has declared all roads closed - since I have power, plus 38 inches of snow where I am presently,winds swirling, I'm getting into the Quest big time!!!

Go Black Team - woof, woof, woof!!!
