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

A FRIEND OF MINE MANY YEARS AGO HAD DONE IT AND I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INTERESTED IN DOING IT. AND ONE DAY I JUST DECIDED TO GO OUT AND DO IT.

Tell me about your most rewarding experience on Iditarod?:

I THINK IT’S JUST MEETING CERTAIN MUSHERS EARLY ON IN THE TRAIL AND THEN BOUNCING AND RUNNING INTO THEM FURTHER DOWN THE TRAIL AND, YOU KNOW, RECOGNIZING EACH OTHER AS YOU GO DOWN THE TRAIL. AND THEN YEARS COMING BACK LATER, YOU KNOW, KNOWING CERTAIN PEOPLE AGAIN AND RECOGNIZING THEM AND BEING ABLE TO WORK WITH THEM EVERY YEAR.

What do you know for sure?:

NOTHING.
