We were out on the river today and saw the Iron Dog Racers go by. We were a few of the tough Alaskans who went out as the conditions were pretty bad for driving on the river. As I understand it one team has already wrecked and dropped out of the race. The race started with 28 teams, down to 27 now and a long ways to go to the finish line: over 2000 miles. Here’s a picture of team 6, George and Schachle, last year’s winners, going by and a view of the people watching out on the river.
