Most teams stop for a few hours of rest at the CP’s. Curt (and other mushers) take time to bed the dogs down on some hay, take their booties off, check them for signs of injury or soreness, and feed them; before he takes off for a snooze.

Arrived Checkpoint 2, Mile 101 at 2:00 am.
Pam & I naively thought we’d sleep in the tent - we froze, whist Jackie opted for the most uncomfortable night she’s ever had, jammed in the cab of the truck, baby-sitting young Wyatt.
Curt started with 14 dogs: Hatchett, Run, Block, Ramp, Bolt, Trip, Mary-Lou, Gaiter, Hitch, Croc, Taser, Dodge, Kick, & Scenic.
It was so very cool to see the dogs so happy and eager to get under way.
Race day tomorrow and we're now on the countdown for finalising the last details.
