You've got the music in YOU...

"Cause I'm as free as a bird now, and this bird you cannot tame..." - Lynrd Skynrd
Quite the ride,
Pat Barrett was our Iditarider, she's a good friend from Bethel. Mike Ellis, a fellow Quest veteran was running our 2nd sled. Though a bit warm it was a beautiful sunny day for an enjoyable seven mile run around Anchorage. Before the team set off we had a bit of a fracas when 6 or 7 policemen swarmed around our sled. Apparently some chick named Palin was on the other side of the fence from our area and needed to be protected from our dogs. Talk about spending the tax payers' dollars wisely.
A bit of a traffic jam on the trail though it was fun to hang out with my buddies Ken and Aaron for a bit. Had a chance to talk with Lance at the finish as well. His team nearly got nailed by a moose - he used a huge tree branch to ward off the enraged creature. Imagine being an animal hanging out in the woods and suddenly 70 dogteams show up out of nowhere. Oh well, just another day up here in Alaska. The show shall soon be under way. I'm not promising anything. The pooches are worthy of endless praise, yours truly is the one who needs to come to terms with who he is and what this life is really all about. We'll see..
Enjoy the view, Hugh and The Laughing Eyes Kennel Crew
