I am a teacher from upstate NY and our fourth grade class is following the Iditarod and also competing in a IditaREAD! We've all selected mushers to follow. I chose you because Ketchikan and Juneau were my first two stops on my honeymoon! GOOD LUCK! I will be rooting for you and your team of the most adorable dogs!

My third grade class says"We wish you good luck in the race." Lois Wooldridge, Commerce, Tx , a teacher at Lone Oak, Texas. We are a Blue Ribbon School and know what great excitement you must feel. I met you last July at your camp. We always teach about the Iditarod when it is happening, to go along with reading.
