As I write this Allen and his team are still camped out, a few miles before Two Rivers checkpoint so there shouldn’t be much need to stop at the checkpoint. He is likely to “blow through” stopping only to check in, let the vets check the team and grab a “to go” bag with dog snacks. He will then be on his way to Mile 101 over “Rosebud” – a rather innocuous name for a rather large hill!
Aliy and her team are still moving nicely along the trail. It remains to be seen if she camps or goes through to the checkpoint.
The handler crew (Mark, Chris and I) is about to head up to Mile 101 checkpoint to meet Allen there. Wes and Wendy will follow to meet Aliy. We all then carry on to Central and Circle City checkpoints. It may be a while before you hear from me again but I will do what and when I can. If nothing else, we will have a lot to catch up on!
