It's That Time!

Iditarod time!

Just watched the news tonight and saw that there are 96 racers this year! Lance Mackey pulled number 6 and Martin Buser number 13.

Cabela's Iditarod and The Official Iditarod website joined together and now they will be teaming up to bring the news from the trail as one. Hmmm, wonder how that will go? Here is the link to the forums, which should be fun. Forums by Cabela's for Iditarod. And don't be missing Jon Little's Iditarod stories. Here is a list of Iditarod links.

The Iditarod Restart will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 2, in Willow, on Willow Lake. A finite amount of public parking will be available at the Willow Airport, located at Mile 69.5 of the Parks Highway. In an effort to accommodate as many race fans who wish to view the Race Restart and at the same time eliminate chronic traffic congestion, the Iditarod Trail Committee is again offering a free shuttle bus system from a variety of pick up points.

I have been working with video for Anchorage Native Musicale (check them out at ANNLF's Blog) so I won't really get into blogging and blogging visits until I am done with that. Tomorrow we will be at West High and again on Saturday. I am skipping out on Show and Tell Friday for that reason.

Iditarod Trail Invitational has bikers, walkers, and two skiers out on the Iditarod trail. I've been keeping an eye out for Jill Homer of Up In Alaska. Most bikers have made it into McGrath.

The Iditarod dog mushers will be on the trail too very soon. I am looking forward to the race again this year.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Will be a great weekend for the Iditarod. I will of course be at the start for photography purposes.

I've also been constantly checking the stats of the Iditarod Trail Invitational for word on how Jill is doing. She left Rohn but hasn't made it to Nikolai. I hope all is well with her on the trail.
