Iditarod and Snowhook: This Says It All
From Rebecca late last night:
The Plunderers did it! They made it to Nome with AJ and the dogs!
We just got in from tending to the dogs for the second time since the team crossed the finish line; it is half past midnight and AJ just passed out into a well deserved slumber.
Did Whitey-Lance cross the finish line? Yes. And, Annabelle? Also yes. Our dear girl retired at the finish line. AJ thanked her for a career well run by picking her up over her head and touching her paw to the burled arch just as he did with Whitey-Lance last year.
We will wake in a couple of hours to tend to the dogs, ship them back home, go to a breakfast held for mushers, then get AJ to the finishers meeting. AJs final must-do tomorrow is a three hour autograph signing session at the community center. There is no rest for the weary.
A special thank you to the Plunderers for making the race possible for us. I am so proud of AJ and the dogs and beyond grateful for the support and kindness shown by the Plunderers.
