Lance Mackey is looking to close out this years Iditerod today with 15 of his initial 16 dogs. He is through the last check point - a brisk 20 mile sprint to Main Street Nome to go apparently. And he was 6 hours ahead getting awat at White Mountain rest stop. http://www.adn.com/photos/iditarod/story/703830.html [Broken] The pictures there are awesome, if not cold and remote, and hellish after so many days of slogging through it. I can half understand doing it for the scenery. But not completely.
