Rohn to Nikolai: long haul!

Angie is currently navigating Rohn to Nikolai, which is a 75 mile stretch. Nikolai is 347 miles from Anchorage. She is in 51st place at the moment and is doing awesome. She has dropped two dogs but it still going strong with 14 dogs. No word as to why she had to drop them.

Starting bib number 19!

Tonight at the mushers banquet I drew bib number 19. This means that I will be starting the race at 10:36AM on Saturday March 5th in downtown Anchorage on 4th Avenue. If you are living in the area you can watch me take off from downtown on Channel 1 GCI. If you are not a GCI customer you can watch a live stream on Iditarod.com. Wishing you were all here for the start. Can't wait to post something from Nome! Keep tabs on me here and on Iditarod.com.
