Just to let the very few who are possibly wondering where my Iditarod thread is for this year, I've decided not to post one on here. I don't have time to post to all the message boards that I normally "report" to, so I'm just using my blog. That and there's been an increase on other boards for the anti-Iditarod campaign, so I didn't want to subject GS to it. You can PM me with questions if you're following on the race or would like to but don't know much about it.

BTW - ceremonial start went off without a hitch, and I almost got run over by a dog team (Dallas Seavey's no less, I swear he did it on purpose!)
