What is going on??
The Race Tracker is on the fritz and I now realize to what extent I have been addicted to the darn thing!
In haste, my observations from the stats and Iditarod Inside: Jeff looks great; happy and relatively lively. The dogs look fantastic! Lance’s team looks great as well. He is posting slightly faster run times than Jeff and our gang. I don’t have an OUT time for Jeff from Koyuk yet…. And as I said, the TRACKER is momentarily taking a break (is that legal??), so I can only surmise that the two teams are resting and moving similarly. The interesting development is that crafty Hans. He is continuing to close the gap and could very well change things up soon.
OK, the TRACKER is back and it appears as though Jeff has not left Koyuk as of 7:00 am but my guess is that he is about ready to depart soon. The temperatures are something to complain about now and let’s keep our fingers crossed that the wind has a lazy day today.
The TRACKER is also showing us that the trail into Koyuk has been diverted from the common route. It would be interesting to know why….
Off to Nome! A two hour drive to Fairbanks to catch my flight to Anchorage for a four and a half hour layover there before catching the flight to Nome. Arriving at 8:15 tonight! Yahoo!
I would expect the first team over the finish line tomorrow, late afternoon.
