Quilt from a classroom of Well-wishers in Oklahoma!

What a surprise to receive a beautiful quilt with special messages from Susan Smith's 6th grade class in Lawton, Oklahoma. They also made me the scarf that I am wearing. More special wishes will be posted soon!

Figure This Out -------->

There are 19 checkpoints on this years Iditarod trail. I am sending out 36 sets
(4 in each set) of booties to each check point. How many individual dog booties am I sending out?

I have 4 - 5 pound bags of kibble for each of the 19 check points plus 170 extra pounds of kibble that will be sent out to a few of the checkpoints where I may stay my 24 hours. How many pounds of kibble will I be sending out on the trail?

I am sending a variety of meat out for the dogs for snacks and feedings. There will be beef fat, tripe, salmon, and beef. I am sending at least 5 - 5 pound bags of meat to each check point. How many pounds of meat am I sending out on the trail for my dogs to consume?

The Beginning Preparations for Drop Bags

Leslie Boyd and Sarajustine came over today to bring me the delicious meals, cookies and PB fudge that they made for me to eat out on the trail. These ladies cooked their hearts out for Ray Jr. and me. What a blessing. Tomorrow more delicious meals will be coming from Kyli and Michele. Now we need to pray for the weather to stay in the teens so it won't all defrost!!
