Waiting for the start
Its snowing outside – we won’t be flying out today. That does increase the chance of seeing the Ceremonial start in Anchorage on Saturday morning.
Last night was the Mushers Ball:
This morning we are all hanging around waiting for “4002” – the Logistics room – to inform us at what time each of us will be flown out in one of the bush planes (Iditarod Air Force). They are waiting for an open window in the weather which will enable us to get to the various check points. I will be going to Finger Lake – the fourth checkpoint 149miles (approx 200km from Anchorage).
Will now wrap up warm and venture out to try get some photos of the snow.
