Nome: under the arch

humans are just along for the ride, it’s all about the dogs

Mitch still heading for the arch…

aaaaaaaaaand they’re still moving snow on Nome’s streets…

Mitch came down the street, calling “straight ahead! straight ahead!”

sometimes we use “on-by”

straight ahead past all the crowds and distractions

down the chute

snack the dogs, check the gear (hand axe, snowshoes, cooker, booties etc)

3:40 in the afternoon in Nome

8 days 3 hours 40 min. 13 seconds… a new record!

“we trained year round, real hard…”

and the dogs get frustrated when you go too slow… they love to run

they didn’t just set a record, they exploded the old ones
