I know I’m alittle late, but I stumbled on this video and it really shows what a musher has to endure.
4-time Iditarod champion, Jeff King, shares his helmet cam action as he traverses Rainy Pass. It’s brutal. The trail is icy or bare dirt. The dogs don’t listen and he is constantly falling of the sled.
He is a master musher, I wonder how the rookies handled it. Yikes! It’s no wonder my favorite musher, Jim Lanier (no relation) dropped out early. No fun on this year’s trail.
To everyone still on the trail, good luck and godspeed!
