The 2010 Iditarod Trail Invitational started on Feb. 28th at 2:00 PM at Knik Lake. Out of 44 racers that started the race 35 finished in MacGrath after 350 miles on the Iditarod Trail. This was Peter Basingers fourth win and Tracey Petervary from Wyoming set a new women's 350 and 1100 mile record. 5 racers continued on to Nome and the 3 cyclist have arrived in Nome. Tom Jarding and Tim Hewitt are still on the trail.
We have already received over 70 e-mails for the 2011 race which will follow the Southern Route.
Sign up for the 2011 race starts April 1 for race veterans that have finished the 350 and/or 1100 mile race before and rookies can sign up starting April 8th, 2010.
Bill and I will be in Germany to visit family from April 1- April 21. Racers should contact us by e-mail to secure a spot in the race for 2011.
On May 1 we are off to Utah and Arizona for 5 weeks to guide a two week Mountain bike trip and then explore more trails in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona.
We will be back in Alaska June 7th to begin our summer guiding season here.
We still have some availability for guided sea kayaking trips and river floats in the months July and August for those interested in a guided summer vacation in Alaska.
We hope to do another exploratory sea kayaking trip in Prince William Sound in June.
Our favorite areas are based out of Valdez, Alaska.
Last year we explored Glacier Island, Columbia Glacier, Sawmill Bay, Shoup Bay and Jack Bay.
In the fall we did an exploratory trip in Southwestern Alaska in Wood Tikchik State Park.
I am exited about another summer filled with adventures by bike and sea kayak in the Southwestern USA and Alaska.
