“Yesterday being only the ceremonial start,” Spence says.

“Good thing,” says Admin, “since although I was right there in front of the screen I must have blinked at a key moment.”

“For newcomers to the blog, our team is Snowhook – “

“Musher Justin, also known as AJ, CEO Rebecca – “

” – and Rose, Plunderer extraordinaire is on the scene, with Prof, her husband. Here’s a report from her.”

Alaska is awesome.  Everyone should see Alaska and the Iditarod at least once in their lives!  The people are very friendly.  Yesterday [Friday], AJ, Rebecca, and handler Nick, took the Prof and I out on the trail.  It was absolutely the most thrilling thing we will ever do in our lives.  Prof and I even mushed our teams.  There is nothing more exciting than being out on the trail, with a lovely snowfall!

Rebecca and AJ are the nicest people, most genuine people we have ever met.  We are honored to meet them, and very lucky to be a part of the 2013 Iditarod!

“Plus,” says Spence, “Rebecca, despite how busy she must be, found time to get in touch:”

Our Ceremonial start was uneventful as far as our time on the trail, yet we had some highlights as well as low lights.  Does Rose, Plunder Extraordinaire, giving Rio Jr. a pep talk count as a highlight?  In my opinion, yes.  I was also given some ‘cheesecake’ money by a fan of the kennel—that’s at least two highlights if Chet is counting. 

“And here is a shot of the pep talk. Plus Prof, Rose, Rebecca, and AJ at the Mushers Banquet.”

“How proud are we to see the Chet patch?”

“Couldn’t be prouder.”
