Niklas Wikstrand came through at 7:43pm, signing right in and out. Dogs looked good, still screaming to go, they’re Pete Kaiser’s B team and gaining some valuable experience out here on the trail.
After Niklas left, the volunteers came back inside to eat a bit more, as well as help one of our race judges dry her boots out. After dinner the oven was the warmest place in the checkpoint, and Karin Hendrickson needs her boots dried out, so into the oven they go!
Just five teams left here in Takotna, and a few more left to pull through from McGrath, then we’ll be moving down the trail!
