YQ: Black Team into Eagle

"Do you have you dog booties?  Dog food?  Axe?  Cold weather sleeping bag? Snow shoes?  Promotional material?  Passport?  Welcome to Alaska, Mr. Moore!"

Allen and his twelve teammates arrived in Eagle City at 11:01 AST this morning, joining Matt Hall and Hugh Neff.  Brent Sass departed from Eagle at 10:35 AST after a 5 and a half hour rest.

Eagle is the only Yukon Quest Checkpoint that cannot be accessed by the handlers.  The road is only open in the summer months.  Chris and Ruth are on their way to Circle to meet the team there.  Aliy, Mark and Moira should be home in the next few hours.  The big shift is almost complete.
