After a 2 hour break on the river, Pete and the Team rushed through the Nenana checkpoint looking really nice. The Team was barking and ready to go. We don’t get to see many checkpoints, so it is a joy to watch. In this case though, Pete was in and out before we got used to the idea at 7:30pm.
He grabbed a bale of straw and a bag of food and was off into the night.
Tonight’s run up to Manley is reported to be a bit soft and its going to be cold– Possibly the coldest night of the race. It will be an 80 mile run through the night for Pete and the Team. Tomorrow it is the Mighty Yukon, Pete’s home for the next several nights.
Mushing Weather Forecast-

See Ya in the Morning!
