There's No Place Like Nome

The whole crew has arrived in Nome with supplies to start setting up ready for the arrival of the two teams.

We shipped some of the dog crates from Anchorage to Nome with Northern Air Cargo who gave us a great Iditarod rate so thanks team!

Below are some pictures taken in Nome over the last couple of days. Town is buzzing with a bunch of activities as it gets ready to welcome the teams off the trail; craft fairs, educational lectures, beer tasting and the businessman's mushing race among others.
