The Team made it to Anchorage in fine style and were met by Jen and Pete at the Airport who gave them a quick ride into Palmer at host family Doug Dorland’s ranch. Doug has been the host family for Pete and the Team since his Iditarod rookie year and quite honestly I think the Team likes it better there than at home! Thanks Doug!
The Team was checked over by Iditarod Veterinarians who gave them a clean bill of health. The dogs are poked and prodded and given a complete physical to determine readiness for the trail. All is good and the Team is ready to go.
Here are some photos of the check from Jen who is with Pete in Anchorage.
