Good evening everyone, from Puntilla Lake, mile 150.
It was an absolutely fantastic day on the trail, the weather was perfect. The trail was perfect until two snowmobiles came by and tore it up a little bit, but all in all fantastic, and most importantly my mind is warming to the task.
Time is slowly starting to lose its meaning, and in another couple days it will be completely gone. So, so far so good - TREMENDOUS conditions compared to last year. I wish you all were here. The big dipper is so close you could reach out and grab it. What an amazing place.
I think of you all often out here, you’re with me all the way. Such an amazing experience.
Tomorrow is one of the big stages of the ITI-350 as well as the 1000-miles to Nome. We go over Rainy Pass, which can be quite a bear, so the blue dot watching should be interesting. The snowmobiles are out tonight…
But as most of you know, the main reason we’re out here, certainly one of them, is to raise money for people that are in the cancer fight. This 1000-miles to Nome is to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. So tomorrow, I’d like to know which of you will sponsor ‘Rainy Pass Day’.
It’s 48-miles up and over this pass, so I’d love to see you all go onto Facebook and post that you are sponsoring Rainy Pass Day and challenge your friends so do the same. Let’s blow up Facebook with ‘Rainy Pass Day’ $48 and you can claim the day to be yours, and know that you did something wonderful to help those that are not as fortunate as us.
Hopefully when I get over that pass tomorrow and check the Facebook page in a day or two, we’ll see hundreds of $48 dollar donations to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Until then, Onwards!
