A few More Shots from between Safety and Nome

Shipping out the snow machine, the gas tank has to be near empty. Plus I was wondering how things were going for Nathan Schroeder, so late yesterday afternoon I went for a snow machine ride out to Safety with Dave Brenholm. En route we passed several teams who were headed to the finish line. Ed Stielstra was headed for the finish line in 33rd place, his 8th time to finish the race.  Jason Mackey running in 34th place for his 5th finish. Both Jason and Ed had their rookie run in 2004. The 3rd team was Canadian Jason Campau, for his 2nd finish, this one in 35th place, after placing 18th last year in his rookie year.  On the way back, we ran into a beautiful Nome sunset. They are pretty special.
