Close-up of the Snowhook sled, taken at the Rainy Pass checkpoint, showing a lovely patch:
“First,” says Spence, “here’s something from Rebecca – “
“CEO of Snowhook Kennel – ” says Admin.
” – who’s so very nice to get in touch on so little sleep. For those who don’t know, Snowhook is ‘our’ team in the Iditarod race, a team consisting of Justin (AJ) and Rebecca Savidis and sixteen (with more back home) beautiful and well-cared for racing dogs. Here’s Rebecca’s report:”
The first full day of racing brought strong race times for the team and some quality time spent in fourth place. The team’s place in the standing has changed and that is expected. When it comes to the race, change is always expected. Up until tonight, AJ has followed his race schedule, coming into and leaving checkpoints within minutes as planned. He remained in Rohn longer than I anticipated. What was the reason? Your guess is as good as mine, yet the extended stay could be a result of weather, sled issues, trail conditions, or dog related. No matter the cause, I trust AJ’s judgement and competency.
“And,” says Admin, “here are two members of the racing team, perhaps running through some snowy Alaskan forest at this very moment. Abe on top, and then Charlie.”
“Many thanks to Rebecca for these photos.”
Welcome Happy, Old Annie from TN.
