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

BECAUSE THIS IS SUCH A GREAT EVENT FOR THE COMMUNITY AS WELL AS FOR THE WHOLE STATE, AND THE LOVE OF THE DOGS.

Tell me about your most rewarding experience on Iditarod?:

ONE OF THE GREATEST EXPERIENCES WAS COMING UNDER THE ARCH MYSELF; ACTUALLY SEEING THE FINISH LINE. AND WAS ABLE TO HAVE THAT COMPLETION WAS SUCH AN ENORMOUS EVENT FOR ME. THAT WAS IN ’87 AND IN ‘90

What do you know for sure?:

THE ONE THING I KNOW FOR SURE IS THE SOON RETURN OF MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO SEE HIM COME.
