Woohoo! Allen has 14 team mates into White Mountain!!
They pulled in at exactly 10pm this evening and will get to leave for Nome at 6am. All going according to plan we might see them at between 3pm and 4pm tomorrow afternoon. We are beyond excited to see them.
Even though we haven’t posted much about them today we have definitely been keeping a close eye on the Tracker and Standings to see how they are progressing. We are very excited that Allen and the team might be home a day earlier than normal!
Allen is still running a string of 14 dogs which is amazing. He has 56 feet to booty, 14 dinners to prepare and 28 ears to scratch so he has been working hard to get the team along the trail. Okay, so the ear scratching isn’t really “work” as such.
Allen’s daughter Bridgett has taken a snow machine and some friends along the trail to White Mountain to see them. I put the video camera in her pocket before she left so we might get some footage if it is not too dark to capture anything.
RETURNED DOG UPDATE
Felix arrived into Anchorage this evening and is enjoying some time with Linda. Aliy told us that Felix was a conservative drop – he was starting to develop a runny belly and was not eating so well. The trail up the coast can be challenging especially if a dog isn’t feeling 100% so she left him in Unalakleet.
We still do not have Clyde home and understand he is still in Unalakleet waiting for a flight to Anchorage.
