Iditarod 2008 - Tales from the Trail

March 5, 2008

Update from Nikolai

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.
