Sorry I haven't been around much. It was a busy weekend and I didn't have a chance to take any pictures of anything interesting. This weekend is going to be kind of crazy. Between work, class, and getting ready for the Kobuk 440 I am going to be lucky to get any photos or posts in. I will try to get something in each day. It may not be my own stuff. Might be a link to something interesting to keep you occupied.
This weekend will be be very busy starting on Thursday with the start of the Kobuk 440 sled dog race. We have been having some trouble with logistics as the volcano has not been cooperating. People are still trying to get here with all their dogs and stuff. So far this is who we have that are HERE and ready to go...
-Chuck Schaeffer, Kotzebue/Ivik
-Ed Iten Kotzebue/Fish Creek
-Another Ed Iten team
-John Baker, Kotzebue
-Heath Coro, Kotzebue
-Mike Williams Jr., Akiak
-Dempsey Woods, Nome
-Pete Kaiser, Bethel
-Jerry Riley, Nenana
We have approximately 7 "maybes" still trying to get here.
On Friday will be the start of the Arctic Circle Championship dog races. These are sprint dogs. And on Saturday will be the Archie Ferguson Willie Goodwin Memorial Snowmachine Race. So there will be lots of photos of lots of different things starting on Thursday, so be patient and bear with me until then.
