Start of the Chatanika 100

Derek and team took off from Chatanika Lodge today around 12:50 this afternoon. He was the second to last team to leave the lot. When he reached the starting line, the timekeeper said, "You're the calmest musher yet." Sounds like Derek.

Here are some pictures from the morning, and I'll post a video soon. Next stop, Two Rivers Lodge 50 miles down the trail.
