After a 7 hour and 42 minute rest in Nikolai, Pete and his team hit the trail for McGrath. He left 3:30am with 15 dogs.
Mushers in front of Pete have been making the trip from Nikolai to McGrath in 5 and a half to 6 hours or so. I expect Pete into McGrath by mid morning. Unfortunately the Insider GPS tracker for Pete is over 3 hours old, so I don’t have a good position report.
Pete left Nikolai at 3:30 after Mike Williams Jr who left at 1:32am and Quinn Iten who left at 2:00am. GPS Tracker shows Williams into McGrath, Iten in Nikolai, and Pete just out of Nikolai. If Pete is 2 hrs behind Williams, he is surely near McGrath in this reporter’s analysis.
