Serum Run Re-enactment Finish

Our visit to Winterfest was a blast and you saw yesterday that we saw some sledding dogs.  We also got to meet Iditarod veterans Bill Borden and Rodney Whaley.

This is a large video file (sorry to non-broadband users) of about 3 minutes, but it is a video of the finishers in the Serum Run Re-enactment – a demonstration run.

P.S., the whining dog you hear in the background of the video is Cheoah, who has her own “special” way of letting you know that she is bored and wants to do something different.  It is one of her “endearing” qualities.

    Cool. Dad got a kick out of the team that tried to turn and the musher was saying, “Go straight!” Dad said, “That would be Steve and Kat”. How does he know? I’m sure we’d be perfect.

    Thanks for sharing with us! That looked like so much fun. Mom thinks she needs a sled but then she figures we would drag her into the woods and that changes her mind!
