Iditarod 2010 Vet Check at HQ, Wasilla

I spent a couple hours at Iditarod Headquarters in Wasilla today for the final vet check. Captions to come, hopefully tomorrow, but enjoy it as you can without "directions" of who is who and what is what. I think you'll recognize many of the faces anyway.

Ed Stielstra and one of their handlers whose name, bad me, I didn't write down and forgot.

Rod is sorta in the middle, facing front. The sled is his from the first Iditarod ever and is very heavy!

Rod Perry, ?, Dick Mackey

Dang, Blake's even got tiled flooring in his dog trailer.


Stu Nelson, chief vet

I think this one was of Jake on their way outta there.

Ray Redington, ?, Hugh Neff

Zoya has the collage attached to the back of her sled so she can see it as she goes along. The story behind it is on her blog.
Pat Moon/Nature's Kennel dogs, I think.

And, finally, the Mackey tradition with trucks continues....
