Call From Shageluk


I received a call from Karen early this morning from Shageluk. She was in a very talkative mood. She continues to say that the trail is the worst that she has ever seen and is surprised that her sled is still in one piece. Loki slipped his collar while the team was resting and went for a walk through town before the checkers gathered him up and babied him until Karen woke up. Charge has finally figured out the check point routine and curls up to go to sleep as soon as Karen gets to a check point. Snickers is doing the majority of the leading. Moe is at the prison now, I'll go and pick him up today. Karen is about 15 hours behind schedule, trail conditions and weather are to blame. She will have to pick up the pace and cut some rest if she is going to finish in less than 12 days.

That's all for now.
