The Parade Was Successful

All 71 teams managed to stay in line for the 11 mile parade through Anchorage to the Campbell Airstrip, where dogs and sleds were loaded back onto trucks and taken the 50 miles to Willow, where the real racing begins.

The big news was apparently the Scots who were supporters of their laddies in the race showing up in kilts. Apparently few Alaskans know what the weather is like in the Highlands.

There has been light snow along the route, but nothing like the deep pack of last year.

Update: I forgot to mention that this year they are going to do drug testing of the mushers as well as the dogs. That should be interesting…
