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

SO WE ARE DELIVERING MICHI KONNO’S FOOD DROP TO THE IDITAROD FOOD DROP AND MICHI WILL BE RUNNING OUR TEAM IN THE RACE AGAIN THIS YEAR. AND WE HAVE TWO REDINGTON BOYS IN THE 2019 IDITAROD THAT WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT AS WELL.

Tell me about your most rewarding experience on Iditarod?:

WELL, I WOULD SAY THE 1997 IDITAROD. REMEMBER WHEN THE HALE BOP COMET WAS OUT? I GOT TO GO TO SKWENTNA AND IT WAS LIKE 40 BELOW. AND OUT OF ALL THE TEAMS PARKED, MYSELF AND A FRIEND FROM CONNECTICUT AND A FRIEND FROM GERMANY, GOT FLOWN TO SKWENTNA BY MIKE KOSCOVICH. AND WE FOUND RAMEY. AND RAMEY, WHEN HE SEEN ME, HE SAID, “WE HAVE TO GO FIND DAD.” SO WE WENT AND FOUND JOE, AND THEN GOT TO JOE AND RAMEY SAID, “SAY HI!” AND THEN JOE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?”

What do you know for sure?

NO MORE AFTER SHOCKS FOR 2019.
