Vet Check, Iditarod 2008, Part 2

Stielstra's truck was very visible and I kept looking for Ed, but never caught up to him. I do have some lovely shots of his dog truck however.
Mostly the crowd was fairly sparse, but, what do you think? Did they discover that Lance was there or what?
Cindy Galley's dogs and truck

It never fails to surprise me how unfailingly friendly and receptive to everyone the mushers are cos it's a constant rush of media and fans.
Tonya Mackey with Mark and Helen Hegener.
We're ready to run and we've got to stand around?
Note the thermometer on the sled.
Helen is really concentrating on something as she walks past some Mackey dogs.
This is what it's like to be Lance Mackey right now, a constant stream of questions and cameras pointing at you. As I told Tonya, a far cry from last year when he didn't draw much of a crowd in the parking lot.

Not sure who this was, but that back trailer looked a tad slanted.
Posing by Lance's truck was a popular pasttime.
Jen and Blake Freking, who run Siberians. Jen's a rookie, tho' Blake ran his first Iditarod my first visit as a rookie fan.

Sign many autographs, Lance?
