I figured the first thing y’all want to know is who we have with us in the truck.
Aliy left Ernie with Wendy in Carmacks. He hadn’t been eating very well in the first two checkpoints and therefore simply didn’t have enough fuel to continue. He has been happily eating his fish snacks and broth since then and slept in the cab of the truck with Wendy as she drove to Pelly. Give him a few days and he’ll be back to his normal sweet self.
Aliy was disappointed she couldn’t take him along; we are always rooting for anyone from that “Five” litter to achieve.
