Dawson: Veronica and Mike made it to Dawson. They got Dave’s drop bags, headed to the camp ground to set up the dog tent so it’s ready for the dogs to rest for 36hrs. Around 5pm today 2/5, Dave was about 70miles out from Dawson. They are expecting his arrival tomorrow morning.  The temperature in Dawson is around 8- below, which isn’t that bad. received_1939426722845995.jpegRhonda, Dave’s rider from the start, and her friends got to check out the dog tent and help lay down straw with Dave’s handler Veronica (she got the ok from race officials).
