YQ: Handlers Win

Aliy, Ray, Meghan and Moira arrived in Dawson minutes ago. Allen is still about 30 miles out. The camp should be complete and comfortable when the Black Team arrives.  Probably no naps for the crew though!  Hope they slept on route in the truck!

Flashing back to last year: as long as Aliy isn't photographed napping on the ground (beside a perfectly nice bench I might add) outside of a store in Dawson while waiting for Allen, then I say let's hope for warp speed camp set-up AND some quick zzz for the awesome SP Kennel Dawson team.

There should be a handlers' trophy for every team whose handlers beat the musher to Dawson.
Congratulations on your feat.

Well done handler team. And well done Allen and dogs! Now that the shelter is up you can take shifts and everyone can get some well deserved rest. Especially Allen:) I remember cool time lapse video from you last year getting the shelter up. Can't wait to see pics of pampered dogs.

No (perhaps dejected) sleeping Aliy this year - 2014 YQ300 win is a tonic, which I hope is stimulus for YQ1000 Black Team in 2014!!!

Back in Two Rivers, Puppet is probably using this as a teaching moment for the Latinos: What comes next in the YQ1000...
