Iditarod: Nome, Here We Come!
Reporting from somewhere in southern AZ (and congrats to Mitch Seavey):
Excellent news from Rebecca, CEO of Snowhook Kennel, our team in the greatest sled dog race on earth:
I picked up C. Hobbit Harris at the airport today in Nome. She decided AJ’s finish line cheering section should consist of more than just me, so she made the trip. I am honored and thankful for her friendship.
Shortly after her arrival, we walked to Front Street and watched the first two teams cross the finish line, Mitch Seavey and Aliy Zikle respectively. As for AJ, our team, he and the dogs made it safely off the sea ice between Shaktoolik and Koyuk. This is much different than last year when Plunderers watched the GPS tracker stray off course, the trail markers were non-existent having blown away in a high wind storm, and the jumble ice created a maze for the team to navigate. This year the team had a much easier go of it and made the trek in less than seven hours.
Next stop, Elim!
And here are three members of the team, Orion on top, Quigley and Garrett below.
Welcome Molly; Penny (Jay and Marcia’s new sled dog).
