Well, Jeff kept his promise.

I just watched the Insider video of the gourmet meal in Ruby. Our dear friend, neighbor and summer Husky Homestead team member, Jamie Kohn, was enjoying the 8 course meal right along side of Jeff. Jamie is volunteering for the Iditarod and has been helping the race for many years now. She knew that she would be working
in Ruby and made Jeff promise to share the meal with her. Always thinking ahead…. : )

Jeff’s team looked incredible in the video as they were parking in Ruby. Titan and Viper in lead as Jeff situated the team for their well-earned warm meal and rest. They will be staying in Ruby to complete the mandatory 8 hour rest. Each team must take an 8 hour break at one of the checkpoints along the Yukon River: Ruby, Galena, Nulato or Kaltag. At this point in the race, Jeff and the team are in command. I received an e-mail from Jeff’s sister this morning, “What’s the pro think, is he going to win?”. My response, ” Looking great but too early to tell.” Lance and his team both looked strong coming into Ruby this morning as well and he is a scary guy to have on your tail. Having that said, Jeff is having a brilliant race. I know that he is having a blast, is very excited and will be wearing a big smile all the way to Front Street and beyond. It has been a dream-come-true ride for him so far.

It is likely he may find the phone in Ruby this morning and have time for a quick call home. If that happens, I will be sure to report back!

It looks like Dave is boosting up on his rest in Ophir. An excellent move at this point in the race for him and his team. It is a long way to Nome!
