Iditarod Starts in 23 hours

The greatest race on earth is set to begin tomorrow.  This grueling dog sled race beats a path from Anchorage to Nome through some of the toughest terrain in the world.  The mushers will face blinding snow storms and freezing temperatures.  Forty below zero is not uncommon during this tough race.  Hats off to John Baker, winner of last years race.  He is the first Inupiat Eskimo to win the Iditarod.  John lives and trains in Kotzebue, Alaska north of the artic circle. A minus 40 degree day with 30 miles an hour winds is a normal December training day for John. Good luck John!
