On The Move

The whole kennel is on the move today. Aliy is out of Unalakleet after a 5 1/2 hour rest and is on her way down the coast to Shaktoolik. She left with all 12 dogs. Weather is reportedly hovering at 20 degrees above zero with a forecast of 0 to 10 degrees this evening.

Allen arrived at Kaltag at noon with one of the fastest times from Nulato. His team must be getting over their flu bug. He thought they would be VERY fast when they finally did. Bridgett is on her way out to Unalakleet right now to see her dad arrive there in the morning.

Doug and Marla picked up the six dropped dogs that had made it back to Anchorage. The Millers drove the dogs half way, to Cantwell, so both parties only had to drive half way, yeah!!!! The dogs were excited to see the dog truck and know they were on their way home.

Sammy had his first flight today. His mom, grandma and he arrived at Nome at 9am after a uneventful 2 hour flight from Fairbanks (much to the joy of his mom!). We are expecting the first mushers in by late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.
