ID: Black Team Into White Mountain!

Allen and his Black Team are in White Mountain currently seeing out their eight hour rest. They arrived there at 3.44pm this afternoon so can leave at 11.44pm tonight so another sleepless night for the SP Kennel Crew! Thankfully we know conditions are not as crazy as on Monday night although the wind is still blowing and it has been lightly snowing for most of the day here in Nome.

We've been hard at work preparing for their arrival; down at the dog yard and in the kitchen. We have steaks for the team at the finish line and we've got one for Allen too (yep, the same steaks!).

Allen and the Black Team deserve those steaks much!!!!
It's been a long trek for them too!!!

Allen must have worked really hard to keep up a pace that was suitable for the youngsters!!!!

I wonder what's going through the young ones mind...

Allen, you and the Black Team are also, in your own way, Iditarod Champions as well!!!!

Maybe you could offer a hat special. One black hat & one red one, for the special price of ?. We do not need a t-shirt, but my husband could wear one hat & myself the other.

THEY ARE RACING!!! GO BLACK TEAM!!!

Which is what they are supposed to do, traditionally, from Safety on in...

Outlaw and Lieutenant seem to be going nose to nose to the finish just like the Red Team did (which as we know, is probably not as close as that!)...

Woof, woof, woof!!!

Fantastic news. So thrilled for Aliy and Allen and all the canine athletes! Hopefully, this year will be better so I can support Shiner.
Hey, who got the roses?
God Bless, and may all get home happy, safe and snug. Hopefully, I have made more fans for SP, the Iditarod and the Yukon Quest. I try my best.

How wonderful to get steaks at the finish line. Well deserved by both Allen & great team of youngsters. SPK is the best.

So glad to hear that Allen and the team will be in Nome soon and have been safe thus far. A few more miles and he'll get to enjoy a big hug from Aliy and a nice steak. Not too shabby. What a venture that must be for those rookie dogs. Good for them and good for Allen and Aliy. Way to run a kennel and to run a race!!! Blessings.

Enjoyed the race.!!!!Watched from Delaware with my three Malamutes.. Hope that Aliy is doing better each day. Does the team have a web site, where one can ask just a few technical questions about your equipment; sled, GPS, etc..
....do you serve the teams, steaks straight out of the package? I know that my Mals would enjoy that once in awhile. BEST WISHES And ALWAYS...BLESSINGS.
