The team has just pulled into Safety IN FIRST PLACE!!!!!! Safety is the final checkpoint before the finish and they have 22 miles to go. GO TEAM GO! I'm not ready to call this one yet.
Aliy, Quito, Waylon, Nacho, Boondocks, Olivia, Chica, Scruggs, Scout, Chemo, Willie, Clyde, Pud, Mac, Sissy, Schmoe and Biscuit - you are our heroes! They have all worked hard and deserve so many accolades for what they have accomplished regardless of their final position tonight. We are incredibly and unashamedly proud of them all.
Remember this from just over a week ago? The team leaves Willow on their way to Nome.
We are heading down to Front Street to the finish line shortly to complete the dog yard set-up and await the team's arrival. We can't wait to see them and tell them how proud we are.
Macgellan will take it from here and see them in - thanks Mac. I'll get pics and stories to you as soon as we have everyone settled.
If you are wondering how Allen is faring out there without a tracker and updates - Terrie Hanke caught up with him in Unalkeet - click here to read the story. He's still in Shaktoolik, expect him to sit there for a while!
