Carmacks

Dave arrived in Pelly at 9:17 pm, the team looked happy and healthy as they crossed the checkpoint. Dave stayed in Pelly for some good rest and a hearty stew. Leaving at 2:47 am, the team was happy to get back on the trail with 10 dogs still on the line.

After Kirsten and I cleaned up, we headed to Carmacks – where Dave blew through after camping just outside the checkpoint. Kirsten greeted Dave in Braeburn at 12:35 this afternoon, where Dave enjoyed a big, greasy cheeseburger. He and the team are now resting before they head out tonight for the last leg of the journey! The finish line has changed due to ice conditions, and will now be at Takhini Hot Springs, resulting in a shorter race by about 20-30 miles.
