Allen Out of his 24

Allen left Takotna with all 13 dogs at a little past 9 pm. A perfect time to be running - the coolest part of the day. He and his dogs got some much needed rest. They eat lots of food and got dehydrated. I am told he really enjoyed the pies!

Hopefully they can get on a night schedule that will keep them running during the cooler temperatures. Now that he has completed his mandatory 24 hour rest, Allen must decide where to take his mandatory 8 hour rest. It must be completed on the Yukon River, somewhere between Ruby and Kaltag.
