    Shots of Ozzie Iditarod Team

    We went to take a few shots during the ceremonial start of the Iditarod today. This year there is a team from down under. So I thought I'd post a couple of shots here. Also here's a link to his bio. I'll be interested to see how much Ozzie spirit he has behind him!







    The lead dog doesn't look like there's much heeler nor border collie blood in him.

    Regards,
    Dan

    I believe in the past, there have been Australians compete in the Iditarod.
    Particularly like the first photo.
    Mad buggers!

    I'm sad to pass on the news to you that your lad didn't win this year. But he's a game'n and still in it. The top five have finished and the Ozzie lad is currently in 41st place and about 375k from the finish (or about 3/4 of the way through the race). Good news is that he is pulling away from the Jamaican team who are now two places back in 43rd spot. And the Ozzie lad is a rookie !

    All joking aside, it is a brutal race and anyone who takes it on, much less finishes, has my admiration. Hopefully he'll hang on till the finish line and will at least have a story that's worth a round at the pub.

    Good to hear he's hanging in there.
