Libby Here! Hello Boys and Girls!
Who’s your driver? I bet when I ask you that question, the first thing you think about is who drives you from one place to another? Is it your bus driver? A parent or babysitter? An older brother or sister? Who takes you from place to place?
When I say, who’s your driver – your Iditarod driver, I’m asking – who’s your musher? A driver is another name for musher.
When you are talking about Iditarod or mushing, a driver is the person who ‘drives’ the sled, the musher. Driver is another name for musher. Isn’t that a cool fact?
How is driving a sled different from driving a car, a bus, a train, a plane, or even a bicycle? Now that should get you talking to each other today! What do you think?
