ADN Kyle, Cain and Tonya
Cain waits, cell phone in hand for entertainment
Gail and Theresa waiting on Newton. Not sure of the name of the other gal, someone let me know, but it was great to see folks out to welcome Newton back to Alaska again.

Jane Haigh, author of Gold Rush Dogs, shows off a copy of Baldy of Nome not only signed by Esther Birdsall Darling but Baldy himself. No, don't think it was really Baldy's paw print, but Darling did provide the paw-tograph. Very, very cool.
Alas, the interior bookplate was faded, as were the autographs, but at least a closer look at what I got to hold!

Jim and Bonnie Foster
I have no clue what Chas is doing but looks like he's counting Joee Redington's fingers? I'll have to evesdrop better next time, huh? Sorry, I was initially in hang out mode and not "work mode". Ha (Update: Mystery solved. Chas says they were looking at a bootie, which if you look carefully you can see in Joee's hand.)
Front, Helen talking to, well, I have no clue who. I was obviously still in hang out mode. Can you give me a hint, Helen? Ha
(Upate: That's Jeff Dinsdale, according to Helen, from British Columbia)
Joee Redington, who'll be doing a presentation, and Greg Sellentin, of Mushing Magazine. This was my first time meeting both of these guys in person. I've even written for the magazine for Greg but only met him face to face tonight.

The Eagle River VFW still boasts its sign about being an Iditarod Checkpoint even if the race hasn't gone through there in ages. The cache, btw, is the one that holds the webcam for the stretch of the Glenn Hwy. that runs alongside this section of town.
