The Northern lights were dancing overhead when the mushers began pulling into checkpoint #1 at Braeburn. Hugh Neff led the pack to the Braeburn Lodge, followed closely by Kelly Griffen. Dave was the 20th musher with the official entry time of 2:07am. There is a mandatory four hour layover, giving Dave and the Gang some well deserved rest. When they take off again, times will be re-adjusted and drivers will depart in proper placement. That is, whoever leaves Braeburn first will be the official race leader. By 6am, Dave will know where he stands and shortly thereafter, will be on his was to Carmacks.
