With four teams competing for first place this year’s Iditarod is a real race. Mitch Seavey just dropped a dog and blew out of Koyuk with Kjetil Backen hot on this heels. At the speeds they’ve been making if it had been a little colder they might have broken the 8 day barrier. As it is the winner should come into Nome between 7:00 pm and midnight Tuesday night.
My wife and I have really been enjoying the coverage every night at 10:00 pm on The Outdoor Channel. Although the producer/writer/interviewer is pretty funky the interviews, video, and commentary really give you the feel of what it must be like to actually be there.
