Aliy and Michelle Phillips enjoyed some friendly banter whilst at the Pelly checkpoint and left eight minutes apart for the final loop of the YQ300. Aliy left with 10 dogs but I currently don't have information about who it is that gets to spend time waiting for the finish with Meghan. It will be a tough battle and we can't wait!
Right now we have SP Kennel handlers scattered all over the Yukon Territory with Ryne's handler Kristina heading towards Pelly Crossing to wait for the Red and Black team to arrive, Meghan currently camped at Pelly chewing finger nails waiting for the YQ300 finish (and with no tracker to help) and Ray and Moira in Dawson to start setting up the dog camp for the Black team. We'll do our best to get pics and comment of the YQ300 to you as soon as we can so please bear with us...
Because of the run/rest schedule the R&Bs are on we may not get a chance to see them. We all wish we could, especially to see the youngsters come of age but we will certainly get a recap to you once things are all said and done.
Ray and I travelled the Klondike Highway to Dawson in "Big Red", we are a bit sleep deprived... and we introduce you to "Taco".
