R&B Team 4th In Sheep Mountain 300!

Woohoo! Well done Meghan, Ranger, Beemer, Boondocks, Viper, Lester, Chemo, Mac, I.V., Felix, Sissy, Nelson, and Tatfish on finishing in 4th position in the Sheep Mountain 300!



After leaving Lake Louise Lodge right on time and running a scorching final leg the R&Bs made up 36 minutes and finished just three minutes behind Alex Beutow of Apex Kennel. Congrats Alex! It was such an exciting final leg for me as a spectator as I caught up with them through Eureka Lodge and saw she was just six minutes behind. Beemer and Ranger lead the entire way and everyone did well on the final push.

All the dogs looked great coming in and ate loads of fish and meat snacks. They are all taking a nice long sleep in the truck now. Meghan is eating eggs on toast and will get some much needed and well deserved rest herself.



So proud of Meghan and the team, what an awesome job!

Congratulations to Markus Ingebretsen, also from Apex Kennel, and Heidi Sutter in first and second position.

Thanks so much for your tireless reporting on the adventures of SP Kennel! This qualifying race for those two-legged mushers who might like to qualify for racing in Iditarod #42 next year was most enjoyable!

Great to see gorgeous Beemer and Ranger leading the way! Those wonderful younger 4-legged athletes got experience, too!!!

Thanks again so much!!!

Hi Meghan, many congratulations to you for such great race! Your care and love for the team shone thru all the pictures!!!
You are a talented young musher and, I am sure you will be a star in the 'major mushing leagues'
Moira, you did an awesome job as a handler, photographer and narrator! I think you deserve a mushing 'Pulitzer Prize'
God bless ALL!
