Pete and the team will be readying to go at this point. The first half of the race over, mushers will now concentrate on the prize– Finishing the 2011 Iditarod! All layovers will be over at this point so it’s a new race and a new part of the State.
Mushers will head north on the mighty Yukon river to the Kaltag. Then over the portage to Unalakleet and then up the coast to Nome. A far different race awaits them.
At 16:53, Pete will be able to depart Shageluk onward to Anvik.
I can’t wait for the report from Myron and Ron this evening which I’ll pass on to you as soon as I get it!
