End in Sight

What an endurance test the Iditarod is – and for CEO’s, too! Here’s Rebecca, our Snowhook CEO:

This could be another ‘No Post Today’ kind of a day. I am in Nome and my internet access is fairly non-existent.

After the obligatory White Mountain Wait, AJ will depart from the checkpoint and make the seventy-seven mile march to Nome where I will be waiting for him under the burled arch on Front Street.

Over the course of this training and race season, I have thought a lot about commitment to the dogs. Despite race records and standings, I am very proud of He is Not Cold For He Has Good Dogs for putting the dogs, their care and training ahead of personal interests, fatigue and other distractions.

I am proud of the dogs, too. They want to run. They need to run. They love to run.

Thank you to the Plunderers for making this possible for Snowhook. I believe a sniff is in order—such is the nature of the best-damn-handling-wife.

    Good morning, everyone (those who stayed up late, those who are early and those who katnapped)! Looks like AJ is not far from Safety now and gaining on Nome.
    All kinds of “f” alliterations come to mind for Friday (frigid, frisky, friendly, fortuitous). Let’s try Final Friday on the march from Fairbanks to NOME!

    Thanks to Spence and Rebecca for the report, good morning to HOH, and Go Snowhook!

    Good morning! We here are so darn proud of our team! Woo Hoo!!! Just look at all those teams behind our team, and those who were not even able to finish. We always count on Our Musher and Our Team to beat the odds, and keep pushing forward. Onward Snowhook!!

    Who will be lifted to touch the Burled Arch? And who was that last dog dropped? We are guessing that is still an unknown. Will that dog be shipped to Nome, to come home with the rest of the team, we wonder.

    How about FABULOUS FINISH FRIDAY ? !!!!

    Good morning all. We love that – FABULOUS FINISH FRIDAY. Heading out now to Lena (2 hour trip) to meet with out accountant. Then lunch with friends, arriving back home before AJ arrives in Nome. We are thinking that will be about 4:00 our time.

    We signed off early last night, but are adding our AMEN to that beautiful prayer. Thank you again Amalia and Leonard. And thank you Rebecca for the morning report.

    Blessing today to all.

    Today is the first day of spring!

    And a solar eclipse!

    A perfect day for crossing under a burled arch!

    We are very proud of our giant and we can’t wait to hear the inside story!

    10:23 am on March 20th, 2015

    We love Fabulous Finish Friday.
    This is the only time we wish we did have the insider, so we could watch AJ’s triumphant pass under the arch, and see the family back together.
    But who knows. The Indider may not even show it.

    Rebecca must be tingling right out of her bunny boots, waiting for her Giant. Is the Hobbit with her in Nome again?

    Mom is home with us us us! It is the First Day of Spring, and we are having a Snowstorm. Heh!
    Mom told us we can watch the Snowhook Team finish LIVE on her big monitor, or maybe even on the BIG T.V.!!! YEEP!

  16. Herd of Hounds
    10:27 am on March 20th, 2015

    There are 33 mushers still behind Snowhook. The last 4 are still in Shaktoolik and seem to be staying close together and who could blame them? Nome will be a cloudy, mild 25*F today. 10*F for those farther back in the field.

  17. Herd of Hounds
    10:29 am on March 20th, 2015

    Howlers, you are some lucky dogs! WE have to sit and look over shoulders but at least we get to see it!

    Snow here in Chevy Chase too, although converted to rain mid morning. Sadly,I will miss AJ’s arrival in Nome in about an hour because of a work commitment, but I will be there in spirit.

    1:20 pm on March 20th, 2015

    Good day, everyone!
    Howlers: What a story! Despite the pain she held on…but oh, her poor nose.
    Having your mom home and getting to watch our team come in on the live feed, and on the wide screen no less, is the best.
    The snowstorm? Not so much.
    Riõ: That may have not been your post, but that foto of you and Doc is one of my alltime favorites. Your expressions are priceless.
    Wolfie: We miss her too. sniff.
    But I’ll bet she is lurking…Hi, Rose!

    When y’all think about gifts for great dogs, remember this:

  106. dawson
    5:08 pm on March 20th, 2015

    ML: Oh no! That’s funny but not really because you missed a very beautiful BDHW waiting for a tall handsome musher and a happy herd of hounds.

    With the camera angles I couldn’t actually see the burled arch which was a detriment, especially when AJ took a dog and touched the paw to the arch. Blast!

    Congratulations to Snowhook Kennels for another successful race!

  107. O'Howlers
    5:16 pm on March 20th, 2015

    The video on Insider shows the burled arch, and AJ lifting Mae up to it very well, Dawson.

  108. Masquers
    6:08 pm on March 20th, 2015

    Seth Barnes is due in shortly…then it will be at least 4 hours before the first of 5 mushers leaves White Mountain.
    There are many teams on their way from Elim and Golovin to that last rest stop before Nome.
    It will give us time to take a break and feed the Bear.

  109. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    7:16 pm on March 20th, 2015

    Good pictures of AJ and Rebecca and the team. To finish in the first half – heck, to even finish at all – is an amazing accomplishment. We are so proud of him and his team.

    Rio, LOL. So sorry to set up that cactus visual for you, but it just pops out at us!

  111. Herd of Hounds
    8:03 pm on March 20th, 2015

    To finish the Iditarod once is a lifetime achievement. To finish it often is miraculous. To not finish one time bedause one doog went on a walk about is a special gift. Our AJ and Rebecca and Snowhook fit into all of the above!

    Rio, we agree on the little guy. And, Thank Dog, Chet is not looking like a BC in profile. Nothing wrong with a BC, it just isn’t Chet. Wonder if Chet Jr. will end up helping on the jobs in the future?

  115. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Creator – we thank you for hearing our prayers.

    The journey is done, and our friend is home. He ran the trails of this beautiful North. He ran with the ice and snow and cold. He met himself on this adventure. He stayed strong, and his courage has won.

    He Is Not Cold For He Has Good Dogs. He has honored the spirits, and lived up to his name.

    Tonight his family is complete again. Tonight we rejoice that he has won.

    The stories will come, and the race relived. We will honor his journey for years to come.

    Tonight his family is complete again. Tonight we rejoice that our friend has won.

    Creator – we thank you for hearing our prayers.

    Beau – not only is the cactus flipping you the “American” version of the bird, but on the right hand side of the cactus, it is giving the British two finger flip off as well.

    This woman came up against Aily Zirkle in an arm-wrestling competition, and came away with a broken arm. Moral of the story: Don’t mess with Aily.
