Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race

Tonight we (Sandy, Kelly, and myself) went to Sheep Mountain Lodge for desert...
and a little lesson about the Iditarod Race.

The owner of the Sheep Mountain Lodge has raced in the Iditarod 6 times!
He has placed 3rd out of 97!!!

He so kindly spent a large amount of time telling us about training and then answering all of our questions.
The questions ranged from "How did you propose to your wife?" to "Do you know Todd Palin?"

-He secured the engagement ring, very securely, to the collar of his lead dog for his first Iditarod race! When he crossed the finish line in Nome he proposed :)

-Yes he does indeed.
