ID: Out of White Mountain - Update

It's 6pm Alaska time.

Here's a quick pic from the tracker for those who don't have access. At this moment (disclaimer: according to the tracker!!) Aliy and team are 9 miles behind King.



Looking at pics from Sebastian's blog (below) Quito will single lead the team to Nome. He described Aliy as "determined" and the team "nice and solid".


Waking up from a nap


Quito; the team ready to leave White Mountain

Casey Grove from the Anchorage Daily News reported Aliy as saying "I'm going to try to catch him, the team looks good."

Click the pic below for the Alaska Dispatch article that describes a few mishaps on the team's run from Elim to White Mountain! Yikes.



In other news: Allen and the Black Team are in to Shaktoolik at 5.37pm! They are making great pace and doing so well; they're averaging 7.7 miles an hour! We're so so proud of them too.

And for a little light relief, here is Biscuit with Dr Mike Davis at the Clarion Suites yesterday evening. I told Mickey that I hoped he didn't pee inside. Biscuit too!

Look at Quito's eyes... she means business! If Jeff slacks off just an instant, Aliy and the dogs can catch him. Go Red Team!

Allen and his Black Team arrived in Shaktoolik 2 hours ago.
Will Allen be able to watch Aliy and the Red Team finish on GPS if they head for Koyuk?

Go Aliy, Go Aliy, Go Aliy...

Go Red Team!
You're all amazing!

Looks like Jeff slowed down outside Safety.
If Aliy has her Aliy cam with her, we might see some crazy blow hole footage....

my prayers are with the Red team to make it through safely and swiftly

Just watched Aliy's 2011 video of the blow hole at safety, with the ground blizzard.
Oh my, keep our girl and her team safe out there.
I can not imagine navigating through that at NIGHT.

But, if anyone can do it...

ALIY CAN

go Aliy go Aliy go Aliy

That's a great picture of Biscuit!! He looks to be enjoying himself!! I'm so proud of Aliy and the Red Team right now!! She is running a fantastic race, overcoming mishaps along the way....bruised hip, hurt leg from a few days ago, and apparently now a broken tug line and so much glare ice! Who knows what else has happened and here she is, through it all, still pushing with all her might in the last leg. She is truly an inspiration!

Aliy, Jeff, perhaps even Dallas, and nature, making this an Iditarod for the books.

Listen to Aliy Quito.

Right now Biscuit is thinking, "It was tough getting that sled through the gorge behind the team, but oh man, am I glad I'm not the one who has to keep it with them in that wind. Go Mac!"

I love that Biscuit Dude. He looks very well-adjusted hanging inside like a city dog!
