Yes Joar Ulsom is first into White Mountain. Nic Petit is 25+ miles behind.
Then Mitch is 3rd and Ray Redington Jr is 4th (as of this writing)

Aliy is currently in 16th place resting in Koyuk (90+ miles from white Mt).

I can't find that Alaska State Trooper episode on DirecTV. But thanks for letting us know.

Joar Ulsom won.
It took him 9 days & 12 hours
:applause: :applause: :applause:

Nic Petit finished second.

Mitch will likely be third.

Aliy was 15th into White Mountain where she is still doing her mandatory 8 hr rest.

Aliy is still hanging onto 15th place so far. She'll likely be into Nome very late tonight.

Her husband Allen Moore had to scratch.

My favorite rookie, Jesse Holmes, made it to Nome in 7th place being award "rookie of the year".

Yes it is!
Atta boy Jesse Holmes!
:applause: :applause: :applause:

Aliy did indeed finish in 15th place and Jesse Royer in 16th.

Jeff King is in White Mt. His 8hr is almost up. Then he'll be heading to Nome.

Nine people have scratched so far.

It will be a 2-3 more days before the race is completed.

Doc Palmini is there again this year. As a volunteer veterinarian taking care of the athletes.
Here he is in one of the tiny bush planes

Per rules, they cannot post anything on social media during the race, only after. He is writing a daily blog that will be published when he gets back. I have read a couple of entries and they are a hoot. The stories about the various bush pilots are something.

I've followed these two for awhile - especially Jim - this is tough to see - but also rewarding

- but soooo close

Wow scary stuff. Thanks for posting.

So close to finishing the race.

Good to hear they are both okay, as well as their dogs.
