In setting up the Unalakleet checkpoint, the straw the mushers use to bed their dogs was all stacked behind the checkpoint. There are sixty-three mushers expected into Unalakleet. Sixty-three bales of straw need to go down to the slough. There’s the problem. What will the solution be? It’s Saturday so kids were around. They jumped on the bales and slid down the hill then pushed the bales to where the teams will park. There’s a saying, “Many hands make light work.” Today it was “Many Kids make work fun!“
