There is an interesting shot of Allen's patched sled at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yukonquest/6828540987/
After leaving the Alaskan road system at the Athabaskan Village of Circle, the mushers head along the Yukon River towards the next checkpoint, Eagle. About a third of the way is the Slaven's Roadhouse Dog Drop, always known for its wonderful hospitality.
Allen will be back on the trail to Eagle this evening. Ryne and Bob are back from Circle and Central just crossing paths with the Dawson bound crew. Aliy, Ray and Wes left for Canada this afternoon. They are heading to Dawson to prepare a campsite for Allen and the dogs to use during their 36 hour manditory layover there.
