Whew, we are so excited to have the Ryno Team with us here in Dawson City! What an exciting race this is. But while we wait for Ryne to decompress a bit and catch a little sleep, let’s update a bit on the handlers’ ride into Dawson City.
As you might remember, big Red was out of commission as of Carmacks, and we had enlisted our trusty little Suby to fill in as our dog truck in Pelly Crossing. Once the Ryno Team was back on the trail from Pelly Crossing, the handlers with Jezzy and Sasha and new mate, Wombat (dropped in Pelly Crossing when she woke up with a sore wrist) headed back to Carmacks to re-access. But the first pictures should tell the story. Suby is still activated as our “new dog truck!”
The handler team arrived in Dawson City last night, caught up with some much needed sleep, and then set to work building the Ryno Team home for Dawson City.
After arriving in Dawson City and checking in, the dogs were driven to the official dog yard for vet checks followed by much deserved rest. All pups are doing great and eating like champs. At this time, Fish will join the handler team in Suby for the drive back around to Fairbanks (sore wrist from that hard packed trail.) This little Suby is AMAZING!
