3-16-10 9:30 am AKDT Trail Update

Dave left Kaltag at 5 am en route 75 miles to Unalakleet with 13 dogs in his team. Dave is currently traveling 8.7 mph at a temp of -7 degrees. If our calculations are correct and Dave continues his past pattern of travel speed/rest stops we calculate that Dave will arrive in Nome late Friday evening.

Unalakleet has a population of 882 and is the largest village on the Iditarod trail. It is located on the Bering Sea. From here mushers can expect sudden storms and an ample supply of wind.

Lance Mackey has left White Mountain with a 2 hour lead. It is his race to loose. We expect to see him cross the finish line later this afternoon. We’ll keep you posted!
