Iditarod 38 got started today and for the next two weeks the Salmon will be in dog heaven as 71 tough and hearty mushers head out under the northern lights where the Arctic winds do wail vying to be the first to pass under the burled arch in N0me.
Can Lance Mackey continue his reign and make it four in a row? Or will perennial Salmon favorite Rick Swenson add a sixth win to his record? Does four time champ Jeff King have what it takes to make it to Nome and reclaim the $5o grand he donated to the financially strapped Iditarod Trail Committe? Will PETA just STFU? These questions and many more can only be answered on the trail to Nome.
Good Luck Mushers!
