What is your Why?.. Why are you here today and involved in Iditarod?:

I HOST IDITAROD PEOPLE EVERY YEAR BACK IN THE DAY WHEN MUSHERS USED TO STAY AT HOME, WE USED TO HOST MUSHERS. AND THEN, WHEN IT CHANGED TO THE CHECKPOINTS, WE STARTED HOSTING THE MEDIA AND FOLLOWERS OF MUSHERS.

Tell me about your most rewarding experience on Iditarod?:

MOST REWARDING EXPERIENCE WTIH IDITAROD WAS THE 2009, OR WAS IT 2010 IDITAROD, WHEN MOST OF THE TOP MUSHERS RAN FOR MY SON LOGAN AND RAISED MONEY TO GET HIM A SERVICE DOG THAT HELPED HIM FOR MANY YEARS WITH HIS DISABILITY, WHICH IS SEVERE AUTISM. AND WE HAD A QUITE FAMOUS SEARCH AND RESCUE DOG NAMED JUKE WHO SAVED MY SON’S LIFE MANY YEARS. BUT IT WAS THANKS TO THE MUSHERS.

What do you know for sure?:

NO MATTER IF THEY DON’T BELIEVE IT OR NOT, EVERYONE HAS REALLY DEEP VALUE. AND I KNOW FOR SURE THAT TELLING THE TRUTH WILL NEVER GET YOU IN TROUBLE. NO MATTER WHAT TO ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH.
