Greetings Race Fans!
It’s been a busy week: final training run on the highway was on Sunday, Monday had us packing everything up and re-checking our gear, etc., Tuesday the team headed to Anchorage where everyone enjoyed a comfortable night at the Inlet Tower, then up and at ’em early on Wednesday to get the dogs over to Alaska Air Cargo before the truck and trailer were parked – then the humans headed back to the airport to catch the same flight as the dogs! Phew!
Everyone and everything made it safely to Bethel on Wednesday – just in time for more race prep! Vet checks and food drops were the name of the game, then began the musher meetings and the meet and greet… and not to mention Bethel really rolls out the red carpet for the weeks race activities! Lots of fun stuff going on to keep everyone busy and having a great time.
Mushers received their bib numbers at the musher meeting last night, and Jeff drew Bib #10! The field is packed with some great talent and the race is sure to be an exiting one!
Are you going to be watching as Jeff goes for win #10 in Kuskokwim 300 Sled Dog Race?!?! Follow along at the K300 website, via their Facebook page, and of course we will be following along and posting updates as well via our Facebook page!
