Shaktoolik Morning Action

Have to admit, I laid down for an hour, woke up 4 hrs later. Missed Aliy Zirkle come and go,darn it. She is currently in 3rd place. Mitch Seavey’s team is still here and Mitch is sleeping. He slept dangerously close to my bunny boots. I hope he will wake up at all.

Jessie Royer just stayed long enough to drop one dog. Boy was she on a mission. Urgency in her voice.: ” Are you ready? ” Yes, her dogs sure were. Even after dropping one dog, she still has a large string of 13 dogs.
