Lance Mackey is still going strong this morning! Into Nikolai ---with my favorite "Smile" down in position 5. As I type - 31 mushers have been in and back out of Rohn! Jason Barron, Cim Smyth and Zack Steer fill the trail between Buser and our fearless leader right now. I am keeping my eye on Jeff King (just about up into the top ten right now) and Robert Sorlie too. Paul Gebhardt continues to keep right up there in the top ten. From this view it looks like Lance Mackey better keep on keepin' on 'cause the tongues are hanging low and there are dogs that know not how to keep is slow! BE SAFE MUSHERS!
It's beautiful today, clear and still c-c-c-ccccold! Still having minus temperatures with wind. Not fun days to be outdoors! Therefore, I am thankful for all the online coverage I've been enjoying stopping by to read. My appetite to watch video footage of the race was not sated by watching NBC Channel 2's coverage! I wanted to see more from the mushers out there when I hurried downstairs to watch the news last night but was Sorlie disappointed, uh I mean sorely! I am probably pronouncing that incorrectly; am I? Probably mushers just don't have time for interviews, I guess.
I enjoyed listening to Dogsled's interview of Martin at www.dogsled.com -- "Martin Talks About Rainy Pass." Sleep deprivation on the trail, something I never really considered but can see how that would occur! I enjoyed hearing Buser's talk about it.
Come on Aliy, get back up there into the top five! I am cheerin' you on through the testosterone breeze! Right now, Aliy Zirkle is in #7 position.
You are missing the big race Millie!
