Hey everyone! Bet here, your roving Border Collie Reporter!
We're please to announce here at North Wapiti Central that the Musher and Richard are on the trail and racing in the Rail Trail 200!
Richard is Bib #1 and the Musher is Bib #5.
Unlike some of the other "big time" races, these little races are hard to report from (especially since I'm not along on the trip) because the updates from the race organizers are sparse, and the Musher and Richard (for some reason) don't like dragging along 200 miles of ethernet cable so they can provide real-time updates.
We've made a few attempts at improving communications with the mushers during races:
Unfortunately we made the mistake of allowing Kara to determine the best time and wind direction for the launch, and we're sad to report that Bait is now somewhere near Alaska, but sending back fantastic shots of the mountains... along with some pretty pathetic meowing in the background.
