hey Angie...Bill and Julie here. How many mph average do the dogs run during the Iditarod? And how many hrs a day do they run? We're pretty fascinated with the whole thing and honored to know someone who is in the race! How are those t-shirts coming along? Nice blogging sis!

Mushing Towards Iditarod said...

Hey Bill and Julie,
Depending on the trail conditions it could be anywhere from 3mph-12mph. Have you checked out the t-shirts? Hope you are all well!

Angie, I met you when you spoke to our group at the summer camp on Tuesday, July 20. I am the redheaded school teacher from Texas. You probably meet hundreds of people each week. I am so excited to follow your progress. Currently, I am reading Libby Riddles' book about her Iditarod win - so interesting. You certainly have a lot of adventure in store for you. Good luck!

Jessica said...

Hi Angie,
I've been really enjoying the blog & the dog pix. You have a great looking team! Sarajustine & I were talking today at the teachers' breakfast about getting up to Nome to cheer you home! Will keep you posted on what we work out. School starts Thursday. Is someone going to keep your class posted on your 'adventure'? Let me know if I can help bring info in to them. Hi from Bloom! Woof! joann

Linda said...

Hi Angie,
I am so excited for you. My fifth grade class and I will be following your journey this year. Discovered your dream at Red Dog Saloon and purchased a glass for your support. Visited from Massachusetts. I love Alaska! What a beautiful state. I hope to inspire my students to pursue their dreams. I wish you all the best.

lisa said...

Hi Angie,
We were just at the Dog Camp last week and got to ride with you and your team! What a thrill it was for us coming from the desert in Las Vegas, NV, to Alaska. We will be watching for you and rooting you on. LIVE THE DREAM!!!!

Hello, Angie. I just posted your site to our classroom webpage. The students will be able to follow your journey. Trust all is well up north. Me, I'm working on my dog camp here in room 111. Do the kids have to have a Google account to post a comment?

Mushing Towards Iditarod said...

Hey Mr. O'B - I think that they do have to have an account. Is there anyway that you can set up a classroom one? Just an idea . . . things are moving along smoothly and I am having a great time with the dogs. Thanks for following along!

Carolyn said...

Hi Angie,
Nice website. Good to meet the dogs and see you. I'm so excited for you. What a lot of adventures you have had!

Hey there Angie! Julie Simpson-Daniels here (Jen's sis). I am going to provide my daughter Rose's 2nd Grade class here in Oregon with website so they can follow your progress. I am so proud of what you have already accomplished and I can't wait to watch you make Ketchikan history!!!

Mark said...

Ms. Taggart,
Wow! Only 18 days to go. Can that be right? It seems like only a few weeks ago you were getting ready to leave Ketchikan. Students are getting excited. I will get them on your site and the official Iditarod site in the morning. That will be a great Valentine's Day gift for them. We are all thinking about you every day.

Mark O'B.

Mark said...

Happy Valentine's Day, Ms. Taggart! Are your dogs wearing red today?

Mark said...

Hi Ms.Taggart. I keep seeing your face all over Tongass. I know you will to great. Good luck! You have my best wishes!

Ms. Taggart,You are very brave to start mushing in 18 days! I would never be able to do that! What inspired you to do the iditarod? I wish you good luck on your trip! Try not to get a brain freeze! From, Brittany

Mark said...

Dear Ms.Taggart,

I know you will do great in the Iditarod. I hope you don't get frost bite. I hope I see you soon.

Mark said...

Dear Miss Taggart,

Hi Mrs Taggart I hope you win and good luck on your race.


Mark said...

Hello Ms.Taggart!

I wish you good luck on the Iditarod. I think you will get first place in the race.

I have just one question for you. Do you ever stop in the race when the dogs are tired of running?

You friend,

Mark said...

Dear Ms. Taggart,

Have you won 1st place before? Good Luck! Be careful. Do you think you'll race next year. Have a safe trip back home.

Your Friend,
Evan, Jenna's brother.

Mark said...

I can't wait to hear if you won or not. I hope you win! Quick question how many dogs do you have? Hope you win

Mark said...

Dear Mrs. Taggart,

How are you going to be able to carry all the supplies you need? Happy Valentine's Day.

Sincerely, Vincent

Mark said...

Hi Ms. Taggart,

Hope you do great at the race. And I have one thing to ask, do you think you are going to be in 1st, 2nd, or 3nd place? Hope you have a safe trip.

Your friend,

mrs brooks said...

Angie, we have decorated the halls and bulletin boards with pics of your dogs. Each classroom has a checkpoint name and info outside. We have paper cut-out dogs and sleds heading down each side of the hall -from Kindergarten (Anchorage)to 6th grade (Nome). Carson's class even made the finish line arch!
We have an Iditarod video running all day outside the office, next to your large poster, bib number and start time. Once the race starts, we are moving a photo of you from check point to checkpoint down the hall.
Be safe, have fun, all our best wishes are riding in the sled with you.

Hi Angie. I am in a 5th grade glass and I have chosen you as my musher for our class project on the iditarod!:-) I will be watching the race to see how you and your dogs are doing! Good Luck!

katherine said...

Do you have siblings?

Carolyn said...

Hi Angie,
I love the pictures. I've been trying to keep up with you, but my computer took the opportunity to flake out, and I was bummed. I got on just a few minutes and then no more computer for two days. I think it just got so excited it wanted to stay there! You look so good, and it looks as if you have gone about halfway. Keep up the good work!

Jessi said...

Hi Angie,

We are so excited for you. Teaching our Aussie niece, Annelise, (grade 3) and nephew, Bryce, (grade 1) about your great adventure. All the best from Australia!

Billy said...

hey Angie and team! Love looking for my daily review of the leaderboard and seeing you continually advance. We don't hear anything about about the race down here in Washington so the internet and the Anchorage Daily News have been great to keep informed. Keep pressing toward the goal Angie!

Brewster's (Gig Harbor, WA)

Carolyn said...

Looks like only 100 miles to go. I have been excited to get what information I could, and I've been checking several times a day. I'm just so excited that it looks as if you are going to be able to finish. I got some clippings from the Ketchikan Daily news, and I'm so glad that everyone there is so supportive. I'll be anxious to hear all about your trek! Love you, Carolyn F.

Nancy said...

Hi Angie, We met you on our vacation this past summer in Alaska at the dog sled camp and followed your adventure on the web. It was very exciting watching the iditarod and we are so happy for you that you were able to complete the race! We cannot even imagaine what it must have been like--congratulations to you!! Nancy & Bill, NJ

Billy said...

Way to go Angie and dogs and all who supported her. It's great to have been able to track you each day of this race and we are all really proud of you. It would have been nice to be able to see part of this race at some point. While the world seems to be spinning out of control you mushers are still proving to the world what courage looks like amidst all the beauty of Alaska. God is Great! Love the Brewster's
