Angie made it half-way!

Late Saturday night, we received word that Angie had arrived at Skwentna (the half-way point of the Knik 200) about 10 P.M. Skwentna is where all the mushers and their dogs are required to take a 6-hour layover before turning around and heading back to Knik. Angie should now be on her way back toward the end of the race and should arrive at the finish line sometime this afternoon or early evening. Go, Angie, Go!! We can hardly wait to see you and hear about your adventures!!!

Angie, we were so proud to see you off Saturday morning! Your drive and endurance in that cold weather is astounding. It was -24 degrees. We bundled up pretty well for the cold, but in less than 10 minutes the kids were so cold they were in tears - Miranda was more upset than I've seen her in a long time. She said she never wanted to go outside again. And yet you were in those frigid conditions for 10 hours! Please know that our thoughts and prayers were with you continuosly. Jolene and I cheered when we saw online that you'd made it to the checkpoint. We're so proud of you for being brave enough to follow your dreams!
