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

THE VILLAGERS. THE WHOLE COMBINATION OF BRINGING PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE TOGETHER. THERE’S A LAWYER FROM SEATTLE RAKING STRAW; THERE’S VILLAGERS ESPECIALLY COMING DOWN FROM RUBY, LIKE BILLY HONEA; IT’S A BIG FAMILY. WE SEE EACH OTHER ONCE A YEAR. AND FOR ME, THAT’S WHY I’M HERE.

Tell me about your most rewarding experience on Iditarod?:

MY MOST MEMORABLE WAS DEFINITELY SNOW MACHINING BETWEEN GRAYLING AND EAGLE ISLAND IN 2013 DELIVERING FOOD DROP TO THE TOP TEN MUSHERS AND GETTING REALLY STUCK; I MEAN, SEVERELY STUCK. AND I HAD A GOOD ‘RELIVE’ OF THAT MEMORY A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO COMING IN HERE FROM UNALAKLEET ON A LITTLE SNOW MACHINE, TWO OF US, AND GETTING REALLY STUCK.

What do you know for sure?:

LIFE IS SHORT; LIVE EVERYDAY LIKE IT’S THE LAST.
