Tuesday March 14 415P AKDT
The team just came across the portage off the Yukon River at Kaltag to the checkpoint at Unalakleet on the Bering Sea at mile 718.
They arrived at 149PM AKDT, covering the 85 miles in 15 hours 15 minutes. They appeared to take about a 7 hour rest at a travel cabin, Old Woman Shelter, about 40 miles before Unalakleet. The team checked in with 11 dogs in 52nd place.
Unalakleet is an old fishing and trading village of about 700 residents. From here the race is along the Bering Sea all the way to Nome. Picture of sunset in the village from back in 2015, a couple of shots from same.
We ordered Trent a large meat-eaters pizza from Peace On Earth Cafe in Unalakleet. Called them about 30 minutes before he arrived (according to GPS tracker)/ They take them right out to the checkpoint. Anxious to see if he got it?
