2013 Yukon Quest Food Drop in Fairbanks!

Dave’s all smiles at the Food Drop in Fairbanks.  With 52 bags of dog food, gear, and other supplies designated for different checkpoints along the race,  The Quest will make sure that each bag is waiting for Dave at various checkpoints.  This incredible logistical operation is made possible by a team of YQ staff and volunteers.  Unlike the Iditarod, drop bags that are not used by the musher at each checkpoint can be picked up by that musher’s handler as they make their rounds cleaning up straw and picking up dogs.
