We got Allen and 13 of his team mates on their way to Pelly Crossing right on time and rearing to go.
The great news is we have 13 fantastic, strong, healthy and enthusiastic dogs on the trail with Allen!
Unfortunately Felix is still with us.
He came into Dawson looking great but he didn’t eat as well as everyone else during the layover. He had a bit of a runny bum (not the technical term) and as departure time got closer it was clear he wasn’t feeling 100%. We just ran out of time to get him over it completely.
He needs a couple more days rest, hydration and medicine but it is something we expect him to get over very quickly. Allen decided it was in Felix’s best interest to do the rest of the race in the truck.
Allen is very fond of Felix and will miss him on the team.
We don’t see the team now for a long time as they travel the 200-odd miles to Pelly. All we will see is the bouncing dog on the tracker so will be hitting refresh repeatedly!
We are catching some sleep now and will break camp down tomorrow. Thanks for waiting up with us!
