1978 Iditarod Champ Dick Mackey at HQ Today

1978 Iditarod Champion Dick Mackey, father of champions Rick and Lance Mackey, was at Iditarod Headquarters today signing books and sharing stories.
Idita-support fans may recognize the face on the right, Kelly Mulford, who has been visiting Alaska, who poses with Dick for my camera.

I'm not sure if Donna was still filming at this point or not, but Dick was talking about his, oh, so close win, and sled problems.

Iditarod Race Director Joann Potts shares an ol' photo with Dick. My photo of the photo didn't turn out well, but it shows Dick among the group that visited Washington DC in 1981.

I don't know why, but I just love looking over the shoulders of others who are taking photos, too, this time video.
