Our Final Kaiser Racing Radio for the 2105 Iditarod. After today’s long break in Koyuk, we talk about the thought process of a musher when things go sour. We also talk about the future of mushing. How do we keep this sport alive? How do we get young mushers to enter this sport. Good conversation for the last one! Thanks to Myron Angstman for allowing me to pick his brain!
Kaiser Racing Radio Day 8 Episode- A week ago we were watching Pete and the Team pass through Nenana and then we parted company as we drove south and Pete and the Team headed West on the Trail to Nome. In tonight’s episode we talk about the Seavey’s, Tourism Mushing Programs, and what a musher thinks about for 1000 miles on the trail to Nome. Fun stuff- Listen In!!
I got a quick call into Unalakleet and who answered the phone, but Unalakleet’s very own Ariel Tweto! She was manning the Iditarod Checkpoint Kitchen, cooking to order for Mushers as they came in to take a break. A lively little gal, Ariel explains a bit about the checkpoint and also describes Pete and the Team into the checkpoint. Listen into this fun short conversation as she takes a break between meals:

I always learn quite a bit sitting down and chatting with Mr. Angstman. In today’s podcast we talk about the Sass disqualification, trail strategies, and a bit about who might actually be leading the race at this point. Listen in:
Pete and the Team have been getting a few miles in on trails in Eureka, about an hour and 4o minutes from his Host, Doug Dorland’s ranch in Palmer. I got in a quick call about what happens during race week from him before he set out for Eureka for some last training miles on Tuesday.
