GPS Reports Pete and the Team through Safety. 18 Miles to go. It surely could be a finish before 3:am, but most Mushers have been taking 3 hours. In any case, we are down to the last 18 miles of an epic adventure spanning Alaska and the imaginations of us all.
Pete Kaiser is now leading the group of remaining Mushers left on the trail.
More in an hour…
Will be putting these out Hourly until the finish from here on out!
Pete is 27 miles out from Nome, 9 miles from Safety. Traveling at 8.3 mph. Wind is light from the East and it is Clear.
Could it happen BEFORE 3am??

Okay, here’s my calculations:
Pete left White Mountain at 5:36pm.
He has covered 32 miles in 4.5 hours.
He is 36 miles from Nome.
That puts an even earlier than earlier calculated.
Mike Williams Jr. Left White Mountain at a bit after Noon today and crossed the finish line at just before 10pm.
I figure Pete and the Team will cross the finish line between 3:30 and 5am tomorrow Morning.

Unfortunately the GPS seems to be having trouble again, so I don’t have a current postion. Hoping to have the Williams Finish photos shortly from the Kaiser Krew in Nome. Take a nap as it’s going to be a long one!!
I hope you got a chance to watch that! Very Fun to watch online!
Mike Williams Jr. Finish Line
Mike Jr. is less than 2 miles from the Finish Line! We’ll have photos shortly.
According to the GPS and the mileage legend, Pete is leading Thomas Lesatz by just over a mile.
Mike Williams Jr. from Akiak makes his approach into Nome.
