Right on time, at 11 past midnight, Allen and the Black Team pulled out of White Mountain bound for Nome. We are jumping out of our skin to see them coming down the chute!
Bridgett and Ryne rode snow machines out to White Mountain today and got these great photos and some awesome footage of the team coming in. They said the dogs look great and ate and slept well. Allen is doing a fantastic job to get all those youngsters through, and the more mature ones! And did you notice, even 900 miles in he is STILL ski-poling!
The Black Team into White Mountain: Viper and Spicy in lead, Scooter and Schmoe in lead, Lester and Fang, Chemo running solo, Moxie and Pud, Clyde and I.V. and Tatfish and Bonita in wheel
