GPS Shows Team Kaiser on the Move.
Looks like they are out of Galena on the trail to Nulato at 5:45 or so.
Dee Dee Jonrowe made her move first about 45 minutes before everyone seemed to start moving. Several mushers are now leaving Galena at this time. Who say’s their not racing?
Nulato is 37 miles down the trail on the Yukon River. I did not notice until this year that the trail passes right by Koyukuk, though it does not stop at the village. This section of the trail is undoubtedly in good shape due to the amount of inter-village snowmachine traffic.
