Thanks for the schedule. Now we can follow along with you as you head from Whitehorse to Dawson- then the black team on to Fairbanks.
We've been there in the summer but it is hard to imagine traveling those trails in the winter!
Good luck! We will be cheering you on.

I'm already having trouble concentrating on work; imagine what it will be like after Saturday!

I had a chance to "walk" an eager young lab. The pull from the dog was stronger than I thought it would be. It gave me a very, very tiny glimpse on what it would be like to run 12 eager Alaskan huskies. I can see why you have to have 2 snow hooks.

Thanks for the last entry where you shared what kind of dogs the teams will be running. It was much different than I imagined it would be.

Will Happy be running?

You all be safe and enjoy the ride!

Wow. Thanks for this peek into the level of organization you need to race. I had no idea.
