What is your Why?.. Why are you here today and involved in Iditarod?:
I GOT USED TO DOING IT. NO, THIS IS MY VACATION. IT’S A NICE BREAK FROM WHAT I DO FOR WORK AND I ENJOY HANGING OUT WITH ALL THE PEOPLE THAT COME.
Tell me about your most rewarding experience on Iditarod?:
I’VE BEEN WORKING WITH SECURITY FOR AWHILE. SO AT THE END OF ONE OF THE FIRST YEARS – MAYBE THE FIRST YEAR I CAME UP – THERE WAS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO THOUGHT SHE WAS ENTITLED. AND WE HAD A DISAGREEMENT ABOUT WHETHER SHE WAS ALLOWED IN THE VIP CHUTE AT THE FINISH OR NOT. MY ELBOW WON.
What do you know for sure?:
THAT I WILL BE RETIRED SOON.
