MVP's- Silver Madonna, Silver was once again on his A game and lead 150 miles. Madonna showed she is fully recovered from her early season injury and is back on the top of her game. She lead for 260 miles. Her and Silver were the driving force in our 120 mile push from Paxson to Wolverine.
Most Consistent- Heckels tugline was tight the entire race. She really proved she has what it takes to be in the Top 14!!
Best Eater- The Dude was always excited to eat, didn't turn down any food the entire Race, and was a great motivator for the rest of the dogs to eat their food.
There will be more on how each dog did coming soon
A big thanks to my handlers Kyla, My Dad and Josh. they did a great Job! Also Doug Vollman for giving us his room to crash in last night and all day today!!
From the Wolverine Lodge
Congratulations on a good race.
What fun we had following you and the dogs.
Thank you for sharing them with us last week.
Gods speed on your way home.

Been following your blog every day from onboard my ship. Wish I could be there to cheer you on!
Congratulations! In the past my computer never allowed me to read your blog - it formatted funny. But now I can and I'm loving it!
I really enjoy reading the updates. I feel like I live in Alaska today - wind chill in Indianapolis is below zero.
I'm generally math-challenged, but when it comes to your races, I "study" the numbers. When I saw your speeds between checkpoints compared to others, I thought "I bet he is doing a lot of running!" I know you look out for ways for you to help the dogs.
I also looked at the race's winners history, and wow, look at the company you're in. Of course, I let Mike know how the race turned out, doing a happy dance with my dogs "they did so good they did so good". Mike, in his eternal Mike-ness just calmly says "well we knew he would".
I hope this comes out right when I type it - you miss the comforts of home in Eureka - I had to laugh. Eureka: no electric, no plumbing, no heat, lots of wood chopping, lots of water hauling, no people....comforts of home?! Way earlier in the season you didn't think you'd make it to Eureka this year....I'm so happy for you that you did.
I have been good and I haven't been hitting your site unless rss feeds tell me there's a new blog entry. But, I put a bunch of hits on the dog bio pages. I love them!!!
Congratulations again, and Happy Gettin'-back-to-Paradise!
