Rohn to Nikolai, Day #5 - Steve Cannon
00:00 / 00:00

Good evening everyone, a day to remember is in the books. Rohn to Nikolai is one of the second or third longest days on the 1000-Miles to Nome. Notoriously nasty, it broke me in half last year, oh my goodness. 

I left at 1:30 this morning, and fourteen-and-a-half hours later, I’m here in the village of Nikolai at mile 300. It’s starting to happen, I’m losing track of the days…time is starting to lose its hold… It’ll be interesting to arrive in McGrath for the second time tomorrow, the last few days have been a good challenge. 

There are about 20 miles left today and the trail was about to put the boots to me again, but I was able to settle down and do my work. I sat down on the trail, boiled water, made a freeze dried meal, and was able to enjoy the rest of the day - What a difference a year makes.

I’m arriving in Nikolai 8 hours ahead of last year’s pace, with a bigger bike, and all of this feels good. Hope it bodes well, and hopefully the fundraising is going fantastically also. Thanks to Angi who is keeping things updated back home. 

For all of you who have donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a huge heartfelt thank you. Tomorrow we head for mile 350, can you believe it? 
Until then, Onwards!


"For friends, for family, for Iowa, and for cancer fighters everywhere. This ride is for a lot of reasons, and I carry each and every one of them with me out on the trail."
