Great Links & the Two Rivers 200 Race

As we sit at our computers searching for more and more information on the race… I came across a great page that provides a link to nearly everything possible that you may want to check out!! It’s on the Iditarod Discussion Forum and you can check out all of the info by clicking here. It’s a really great compilation that includes some of the following: Iditarod links; photo and video links; television, radio and newspaper links; weather websites; individual musher websites (and lets you know of those that are currently being updated); as well as a few links for webcams!! Check it out!!

Our handler Dave DeCaro is wasting no time in front of the computer this weekend! He’s signed up for the Two Rivers 200 Sled Dog Race! This will start just north of Fairbanks and continue around on a number of trails used by mushers in the Two Rivers area. The race start is Friday at 12pm. He will be assisted by Shake N’ Bake crew member Jason, our sweet gal-pal Nicole, and I’ll be heading up to help out and hopefully snap some pictures. I’m not sure that they will be updating any stats on their website – but we’ll be sure to fill you in on the race after we all return home. Dave will be running a 12 dog team of mostly 2 year olds – four of which were selected for Jeff’s Iditarod team but didn’t quite make the final cut.

Speaking of the final cut for the Shake N’ Bake Iditarod Team…. we never filled you in!! Whoops! Here’s a pic of the final selections…

The final cut consists of the upper 16 dogs on the ‘cookie sheet’ – the 4 guys at the bottom took part in the Ceremonial Start and will be running with Dave this weekend.

  2. Thank you so much, Carrie, for all the links. I am not very good finding my way around the computer. I had no idea there were so many different links. Kiss my regular schedule good-bye for a few days!!!

    Keep up the good work!

  3. Hey Silvia,

    the new harnesses are very nice and they are made by Mike and Caitlin Santos at Wolfs Den Kennel. They also make great dog coats that Jeff is using this year. Check them out at wolfsdenkennel.com
