Thanks, Penny, for this and all of your great updates and cartoons during the race. You helped all of us keep our focus and enjoy the Iditarod in spite of some of the nail-biting segments. You rock (and, of course, you have some great material to work with)!

Hey, Penny, is that a mug of green beer one of the Curly Tails is tipping - in honor of St. Pat's Day? Very clever!

Congratulations Karen on a terrific run. And thanks to all of the Minions for your hard work in keeping us all informed. You did a terrific job.

Great job to all!
Minions, reporters, Musher and dogs - You all are to be commended for all the work that went into the race and the coverage.
Once the Musher has had a chance to catch up on some well deserved rest and food, I hope that we fans will get to read some 'On the Trail' stories.
I know I for one am looking forward to reading what happened out there on the trail.
Again - Congrat's on a well run race!

Congratulations! (it's not whether you win...) It was fun watching two Siberian teams on the Iditarod Trail. So glad there are at least a few people proving the great worth of this ancient breed! Thanks so much for taking us all along for the ride! Pics and cartoons (and the Wayward GPS) were awesome!
