2015 Yukon Quest: Dave’s out of Central at 10 am on Feb. 17th with 11 Dogs!

Dave is 6 miles out from Mile 101 Checkpoint after leaving Central this morning at 10:00 with 11 dogs on the line.  Woody joined Kirsten and Jen in the dog truck – sounds like his spirits had dropped a little.  Dave and Mike Ellis left Central together so they could tackle Eagle Summit together.  Trail reports say that it’s close to 30 degrees ABOVE at the top with some gusts of wind.

Dave should be at Mile 101 very soon – that’s 878 miles further down the trail, and the second to last checkpoint.  Kirsten and Jen are waiting for the Gang at 101 and report beautiful blue skies!
