Zirkle 1st Into Safety, King Trouble on the Trail, Swenson Calling the Shots in Downtown Nome
Aily Zirkle was the first to check in at Safety, as reports of 45 mile per hour winds emerge. Jeff King is parked about 4 miles from Safety, and there is no word what the issue might be. I do know that some dogs have an upper limit on wind, and 45 might be past it. Lots of communication between serious race fans tonight. Five time champion Rick Swenson was one who called. He said depending on how things shape up in the next couple hours, he might have a drink in downtown Nome.
