It's 9.30pm Alaska time.
The Red Team arrived in to Nulato at 7.47pm this evening are are currently still at the checkpoint.
Sebastian caught some great pics of the team on the river between Galena and Nulato and also some pics at the checkpoint. His story says she plans to drop two dogs so we are awaiting news about that and will wait the confirmed statistics once they leave the checkpoint. If this is the case, it means she will leave Nulato with 12 team mates which is still a decent sized team!
Since the last update this morning, the Red Team have completed their mandatory eight hour Yukon River rest. They're now on an even playing field with Buser, Petit, Sorlie, Maxiner, Burmeister and Neff in the Current Standings top ten list. Lindner, King and Seavey the Younger round out the rest of the official top ten but have not completed their eight hour rest.
Emily Schwing from KUAC caught this great shot of Scruggs and we think maybe Clyde or Willie resting in the morning sun in Galena. They look so peaceful! She spoke to Aliy about her position at the time. Click here to listen.
The Black team rested on the leg from Cripple to Ruby for about five hours during the heat of the day. At the time of writing they are around 10 miles out of Ruby.
Meghan and I have the opportunity, along with Doug (Aliy's Dad) to go to Unalakleet tomorrow to see if we can catch Aliy and hopefully Allen through the checkpoint. We're looking forward to the opportunity to see the Village and parts of the trail from the air! We are not able to help the teams in any way so will be limited to the side-lines but it will be great to see them in person after so many days. We're looking forward to it!
I'll leave you in the very capable hands of Kaz for a couple of days for the daily updates. I'm not sure what internet I will have but hopefully I can post some pics from the checkpoint.
