A Call from Bridgett

We just got a call from Bridgett in Unalakleet. Allen got into the checkpoint at 12:40pm. The dogs look great BUT Allen picked up food poisoning in Galena. He had to stop for an extended stay at Old Woman Cabin half way from Kaltag to Unalakleet. He just couldn't go on. He will stay at Unalakleet until he feels a bit better. He just wishes both he and the dogs could feel well at the same time.

Aliy is on the move from Koyuk to Elim. We expect her to only take a short break in Elim before heading off to White Mountain. She still has 11 dogs.

Lance Mackey got into White Mountain an hour before Jeff King. There is a mandatory 8 hour stop there. It will be very difficult for Jeff to catch up to Lance now.
