Iditarod Ceremonial Start: Booked!

With our airline tickets and hotel room booked, it’s official: we’ll be traveling back to Alaska in March! Carlie and Chloe have been invited to ride with the Berrington twins during the ceremonial start of the Iditarod Race. They will ride behind the mushers on what’s called a “whip sled” for eleven miles through the town of Anchorage. The video link below shows a good clip of the start along with the whip sled rider. We are also invited to be guests at the “Musher’s Banquet” before the race! This is going to be quite an adventure – we are all very excited! Better start looking for some parka’s for the girls – wonder if they come in XS!
