As the teams wait out their eight hour stop we have been busy preparing for their arrival.
We picked up the kennels from Northern Air Cargo (NAC) and started to set up the Nome dog yard. We've laid them out and got the kibble and bowls on hand. We'll add straw to their kennels shortly before they arrive and make sure everything is perfect.
Next was a stop to the grocery store for supplies. Two dozen steaks now sit in the refrigerator waiting to be devoured at the finish line!
Bridgett and Ryne have taken snow machines out to White Mountain and will be able to check-in with Aliy before the team leaves. The rest of the crew arrive in Nome around 8pm so will be here in plenty of time.
At 3.59pm it's all on! Until then we just wait…
