Guess What? I found a whole set of Video Clips that I forgot about! (Nome will do that to you) This looks like the same, but it has a better ending from the dog yard if you are interested. Worth the wait!!
It finally made it to YouTube! Worth watching this ride and slide down the Dalzelle Gorge with Jeff King! Hold on Tight! You are in for a RIDE!!
The files showed up, but they wouldn’t play, but after a bit of magic, they are good to go! Thanks Isaiah and Courtney for these short clips- Nice Job! Also thanks to Marcus Ackerman, their teacher, for putting them to work for us!
Richie and his Team are just out of Nikolai after the endurance course they call the Iditarod Trail 2014. Hopefully Richie has survived the challenge better than others and after a break will be ready for the next bit of trail on his home waters of the Mighty Kuskokwim. All of our Trio of Mushers are Kuskokwim dwellers. Traveling down the Kuskokwim River will almost be like Homecourt Advantage. I wonder if the Team can smell Aniak??
Pete is making good progress at about the same pace as Richie with the 2 hour distance back being close to the Start differential. Expecting Team Kaiser into Nikolai in the next couple of hours or so.
Mike is resting comfortably in Nikolai. Here is a fan foto of Mike eating breakfast in the Village.

Iditarod fans will be talking about the Epic run by Martin Buser from basically the Starting Line into Nikolai. Hopefully his strategy will pay out for him.
The story for our Fans, though, is the story of Mike Williams Jr. and the fine run HE is having. Mike Jr. and his Team left in 7th position from Willow and has bee running pretty much in the top 10 for the whole stretch of the race up until now. Presently GPS tracker has him in 7th just a few mile outside of Nikolai.
Mike’s Team started the race with 15 dogs in harness and he has dropped 3 to be down to 12 dogs at this point, but I looked through the histories and though this is a low number, it has been done several times. He will have to be conservative, but he is definitely in a good position.
The trail from Rohn to Nikolai has been described as the worst in years with nothing but glare ice and no snow. Guess what Mike has been training on??? Pete and Richie just couldn’t take it and repositioned to Nenana for better training while Mike just kept training on this type of glare ice, no snow, exposed tundra condition. For his dogs, this might just be a run out of Akiak to the Yukon and back.
Way to go Mike- Good Luck!
Where is the rest of the Trio??
Pete’s Tracker is not working at present, but Richie is camped out at the Farewell lakes just before the “burn.” I am sure that Pete is there as well as that is the last ping from his tracker. This spot is popular for mushers as it gets them 20 miles down the trail from Rohn. Trail reports had this first 20-30 out of Rohn as terrible at best with exposed tree roots, rocks, ice, tundra– the whole gambit. It will be good to take a break and head out in the daylight when they can hopefully see where they are going. Glare ice trail is hard enough to follow in daylight. Night is a bear.
