I'm very excited to be here everybodies, because HOOO that drive over here was a bit scary! We were awfully glad the Richard took the wheel, he's very good at the driving thing, so we didn't end up stuck in the big snow drifts or in a ditch like a lot of the other peoples did.
As you can see, I was very tense during the ride
|Um... what are you doing? I'm trying to sleep here|
|Briffany, are you drinking my latte?|
|I'm giving you the evil eye!|
|Are we there yet?|
Of course we made a few stops, and since I had packed most of my cold weather fashionable ensembles, the Musher made sure I kept warm by tying me into a blankie
|I'd like a sip of MY latte now Briffany|
|mmm, fleeeeeecy pillow top bed with down honk honk goosey downy down fluff|
|Has anyone called room service yet? I'd like a pizza|
|Oh, geez, thanks for putting that back in where it belongs|
|Ok Rocky, turn your head and cough!|
|Richard is there for emotional bonding and guidance and to keep repeating Rocky's new mantra: "Snowmachine rides are bad, chicks love finishers"|
|Rocky apparently needs more mentoring as he attempted to drop out of the race on the table|
|They painted my white head stripe green... I kinda like it|
|What's that spray bottle doing in your hand... why are you smiling?|
|Does this green stripe make my butt look big?|
|don't look at me! I'm hideous!!|
All of the Mushers will get a GPS put onto their sleds!!! You can follow the race with everybodies! I certainly hope that all 4,147 of you don't all click the button at the same time, but you can watch the whole race live and as it happens on the GPS things... you too can follow the little dots around the course and watch the fun as it unfolds... and freak out when the dots stop... and ask why the dots aren't moving, and ask why the dot hasn't moved for a long time...
Go to the Canadian Challenge website and there's a 2013 Canadian Challenge Live Tracking button in the middle... ish part of the screen. If you don't see it, then you may be using a Firefox, which was having issues, or Chrome, which was having issues, or... just try to empty your browser cache (don't ask me, I have no idea, someone told me to say that) or try another browser. I know it works using IE, some people can get it using Firefox, and Safari works... just keep trying... steal someone's computer if you must.
Rules of the race, let's just get it over with now:
1.) We'll tell you when we know. If we don't tell you, we don't know
2.) I don't know who the GPS is. I had heard that Wayward got demoted from Iditarod because he fell off, and had been working as a GPS on a meat delivery truck in Tupolo, Mississippi...
3.) You can ask questions, we'll try to answer them, but we won't answer "why aren't they moving, why is the sky blue, or if you could be any tree"
Until later folks!
