We may not be there in Alaska to cheer your Pete on, but he has some real fans here in Louisiana!
My Pete Kaiser and his little sister, Irene, my husband Doug, and myself, are all glued to the updates on the website! (Thank you so much for them! And keep them coming!)
GO TEAM KAISER!
All the best,
Here is a picture of Pete’s retired leader Mayan. She was his leader in his very first Iditarod. She has been busy tracking and watching all the insider videos with me. She came out to Wasilla with us and got to visit with all her old friends. She was happy to be with the team again for a short while and misses them all. She wishes them the best of luck! 🙂
Gail Carlton was our inaugural Iditarider in 2010. Every year she returns to Alaska to volunteer after her job moved her down south. Here’s a picture of Gail and her crew 7 miles up the trail from Willow.
This motley crew of handlers and supporters at the 2012 Willow Restart. Looks like a bunch of fun!
Thanks to Bruce Holt for this excellant photo of Team Kaiser outbound of Yentna. Look at that fine dog team!
This was taken in front of our church. St. John of Kronstadt Orthodox Church, in Lincoln, Nebraska.
We are (from left to right):
Top Row: Myself (Marcia Claesson, a die-hard mushing fan), Our priest, Father James Dank, Effa Hill, who is Pete’s aunt’s sister-in-law.
Front: Effa’s two boys, Haden and Nathan
Love those fan photos and appreciate the time to make up a sign! (Pete’s Grandma Lillian in this Photo with Aunties)
Former Bethel Cheerleader Carolyn Moses and her clan were at the finish of the K300 to cheer on Pete and the Team and wanted me to post these photos to cheer him on!
That’s a great idea! Take a photo of yourself and make a sign if you would like. Send it to me and I’ll setup a new section called Fan Fotos! What a fun way to kick off the race! If you are at the start or along the trail! Or if you are out of State (Lillian???) Take a photo of YOU and send it my way! (And don’t forget to include your dog if you have one!) firstname.lastname@example.org is my eMail.
Go Team Kaiser!!
