Aliy and Allen went to a pre Iditarod event last night hosted by ExxonMobil at the Hard Rock Cafe in Downtown Anchorage. The “one week out” party was a Salute to the Volunteers Veterinarians of the Iditarod. Jeff Schultz showed many amazing photographs of the Mushers, Dogs and Veterinarians along the trail.
The party was a fun, relaxing event – considering the week to come. Allen and Aliy were able to catch up with DeeDee and Mike Jonrowe, Dallas Seavey and Martin Buser, as well as many friends and supporters of the “Last Great Race”.
The evening was perfect until Martin and Aliy got in a bar brawl over a dog sled.
In the end, the two mushers resolved to settle the argument next week… on the Iditarod!
