A Good Race...

As the leading teams draw near White Horse I must congratulate both for an exceptional run.
Anderson's 52 minute lead out of Scoggie Creek was over taken by Pelly Crossing by Makey.
Macky left Braeburn with a ten minute lead on Anderson and two extra dogs. Makey had taken several "rests" where Anderson went several check points without...

I would have concluded that Anderson's dogs were tired...only 8 left...should have cost him speed...

what i am hearing is an 8 minute distance separates these two on their way to the finish...

since you can not go anywhere because i am typing on you...your forced to sit here with me and wait out this race....


yep we are still waiting...wanna play word srabble...

vnotasironec...........can ya guess it? Huh? Better go back and see if we have a winner...

Not yet..maybe the dogs had to potty...or maybe the musher's are playing rock paper scissors to see who will win...or maybe i am just super inpatient and want to got to bed...

So they are not in on the assumed schedual...do you think they stopped for a drink on Main Street?...maybe if we tell some jokes...Knock Knock...

Your spose to say "Who's there?"
Well you are...but thats okay because i don't know the rest of the joke anyway.

So I picked the boogers in my nose...and flipped them at the screen...bored with that now...took my dog out...he needs studs hehe that was not nice since he is neutered...don't tell him i said that...so what to do now....waiting....
and we are still waiting....zzzzzz...wait did i hear a dog bark?

This is it...they are moving down the last leg...first avenue and wood...who will it be? Well how am i suppose to know that...i am just here on this blog trying to keep you updated...geez...

So while we sit here we could contemplate the meaning of life...I am thinking chocolate...or maybe pop corn....but then it could be that this dog race it taking up to much of my time and energy...hehe...guess i found a sport that does not have a ball in it...and is entertaining to my senses..

Did anyone win? Why you asking me that? Cause your the one watching the race dummy....oh yah...hold on i will check....

Well if they have they are too busy celebrating to update the web site that they have been so good at keeping up to date so far...

i am gonna play pogo pig poker to pass the time...maybe i will win the pork...

and at 1:23 Pacific Standard Time Lance Mackey took the Yukon Quest for the fourth year in a row.....Way to go Lance!!!!!

Ken Anderson ran a good race and came in second just 15 minutes behind Lance....

Now lets see if he makes it Anchorage in time to sign in for the next race....

Thanks Shana for the blow by blow graphic discription of what you were doing. At least, I will not have to look it up now so that will save me a little time. Ranger Bill will be proud of you. Is our bet still on about Mackey and the Iditirod? Clean the buggers off your screen and go to bed.

yes father our bet is on...I know he can do this...ok his dogs can...lol...but first he still has to make it back to Anchorage...which proves to be Mackey weakness on this trail.....
