Team 21 is having mechanical problems and are waiting in Rohn for parts. Oh no.
Right now leading the race with the shortest travel times are teams 16, 8, 14, and 22. They have declared a lay-over in McGrath.
I am bummed about team 21. I hope they can get parts in time to get back on the trail.
Team 42, the Wounded Warrior Project team that had their sled stolen were able to get another sled and back into the race before the start. I see that they have scratched and are spending the night in Skwentna. Not sure why and I'm sorry to hear that.
He and Hastings are racing the Iron Dog to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit based in Florida that helps severely injured war veterans transition back to civilian life. ADN.COM
This race is so much faster than the Iditarod Sled Dog Race which is coming up really soon too! After that... I know that spring is just right around the corner! Yippeeee!
