I heard from Karen this
morning, she was just about to leave Nikolai. She will
blow through McGrath and should get to Takotna around
7:00 PM Alaska time. When she gets to Takotna she will
declare her 24 hour layover, which for her will be just
over 26.5 hours.
She said that it was 40
degrees out on the trail yesterday and is taking it slow
hoping that it will cool down later in the race. Karen
is a little behind on her schedule, but there will be
plenty of opportunities to make it up later in the race.
Here in Willow it was 42
degrees and poured rain all day. The eight dogs left
behind are all doing fine but Kara has stopped eating
and spends all of her time looking at the house. Hilda
is getting a bit of a baby bump, here do date is in less
than three weeks.
That's all for now.
