Quick update (Tuesday evening)

Flew into Anchorage 45min ago.

Saturday: Up and at the Ceremonial start in town at 06:30. Great to see all the dogs all fired up. (Will post pictures tomorrow)

At midday received the call that I had an hour to get my bags and be at the Merill Field Airport (Anchorage).  Flew in to Finger Lake. Spent Sunday setting up -pictures will explain most.

Finger Lake ready for the onslaught

 

First team came in at 02:19 – we had been waiting (receiving regular updates) since midnight. Last team (71 in total) left at 22:00.

Perfectly warm and comfortable, not losing any heat.
