Aliy has passed through Nikolai. By using the GPS tracker, we could tell that she stopped about 10 miles out of Nikolai and rested before heading through the checkpoint. They do not have her through on the update, but the tracker has her 30 miles out of McGrath. She looks like she is still travelling with Ed Iten and Ken Anderson. Until they show her into and out of Nikolai, we won't know if she needed to drop any dogs. Hopefully not!!!
There is no further news on Allen since he left Rohn at 10:30am this morning.
