Rebecca’s Iditarod “Report”
Below is a conversation that may or may not have happened between Admin and me:
“No post today,” I told him.
Admin blinked. He stared. He blinked again.
“Am I allowed to have a ‘No Post Today’ day?”
“It’s twofold. Pick the one you like best.”
“One. Wednesday is a travel day and I have a lot to do between now and when I leave for Nome. “
He raised his eyebrows. Unlike Rio, the sled dog not the evil pug, I bet Admin always knows the whereabouts of his eyebrows.
“Two. I stayed up into the wee hours watching the damn flag move across the sea ice from Shaktoolik to Koyuk. It’s a notorious section of trail.”
“Don’t believe me? Here is a link to a video made by our very own Melanie about Team Snowhook’s time on the sea ice in 2012.”
“A ‘Yeep!’ and a ‘Yark!’ might be in order. Such is the nature of a Plunderer.”
By the time of this report, Team Snowhook is off the sea ice and resting in Koyuk. From there it is a handful of checkpoints until the burled arch in Nome.
