Headed to Fairbanks for the Race Start?? Using a shuttle would be a good idea!

"This weekend I was working with the JR. Iditarod and while on my way out to the half way point at Alpine Creek Lodge with one of the Cargo Sleds I managed to run over myself with the cargo sled when I did that header into the side of the road while passing Jeff King’s team who were out there training at the time. I was so intent watching his dogs and especially his leaders during the pass that I was as far over to the side as I could get and even at maybe 12 – 15 MPH so as not to spook Jeff’s team I either caught an ice chunk or a frozen in rock and was thrown from the machine. Jeff has such control over his dogs that he set the snow hook and came over to make sure I was OK and to help me get that 800 pound pig back up on the roadway. Once I told him I was not seriously injured he was well within his rights to get back to his team and keep them under control, but he chose to help me instead. The team was just anxiously waiting for him, playing and wagging their tails as well behaved as they could possibly be. Jeff King is a real class act and gentleman. I knew this before, but here is just one more confirmation from my personal experience. I knew Jeff casually from his being a friend of one of our teachers, Jack Reisland in Tanana back in the late '70's when I was there and both his daughters Callie and Tessa later when they ran JR. I.. He didn’t recognize me as we were only casual acquaintances and I have changed so much through the years that I honestly wouldn't recognize myself either. This just sums up what a good guy he is, he didn’t care if he knew who I was or not, if you need help, her was there to offer regardless. To sum it up, Jeff is not only a premier distance musher, he is a gentleman, and a real human being. Hopefully, this will get on Facebook, but not sure I am doing it correctly and it could just go to Jeff himself. I hope it does go on Facebook as I am very grateful for the help and would like others to know about it as well, so if it just goes to his personal account, I hope one of you in the King family will post it where it should be. Thanks again Jeff.
