Wednesday March 8, 600P AKST
Each team has to take an 8 hour rest at one of the checkpoints on the Yukon. The team took their mandatory 8 hour rest at Tanana, the first checkpoint on the Yukon. Trent checked out of Tanana at 531P AKST in 54th place.
Here is a picture from Jeff Schultz on the Iditarod.com site of Trent coming in to Tanana at sunrise this morning. Blast and Hornet in the lead.
Another nice shot off Iditarod.com website of Tanana last evening, the Northern Lights dancing away.
Here is the trail map. It says 2015, but it's the same route. 120 miles to Ruby. Should break in to two 60 miles runs, with a 6+ hour camp/rest stop in the middle of the night tonight. Weather in Ruby is looking warmer and cloudy in the next day or two, highs of +10F lows of 0F.
