Hello Boys and Girls!
Straw isn’t the only supply that gets sent to the trail.
Mushers bring their supplies to a location where the supplies which are in bags called ‘drop bags’. The name of the checkpoint the bag needs to go to on each bag.
Each bag is filled with supplies a musher needs when getting to a checkpoint. Some supplies in the bags are: food for the dogs, food for the musher, dog booties, dog blankets or jackets, extra clothing or boots for the musher, and anything else extra a musher needs at the checkpoint.
Remember, there are supplies in a musher’s dog sled, too.
I can’t help but wonder, boys and girls, what supplies would you bring with if you were a musher?
