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?
