"Backstage Iditarod," the book

It's taken me far longer than planned, but Backstage Iditarod, the book, is finally near completion. I actually started this blog way back when thinking it'd be the accompanying blog, so that tells you how long its taken me. It's been a long, winding road, but more on that story later. For now, here's the cover. $16.95 plus $5 shipping/handling.
Please use the comment link for now, but I expect to have the website for the book up and running in the next few days.

Iditarod's Summer Volunteer and Sign-Up Picnic

Alaska's Governor Sarah Palin was on hand for the volunteer and musher sign-up picnic for Iditarod 2008. She's shown here with 2007 Champion Lance Mackey who, of course, bungled her name moments after finishing in Nome, but seems to be traveling in the same circles nowadays.
