Posted on 03/18/2012 7:07:43 PM PDT by LibWhacker
The 40th Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race came to an end earlier this week in Nome, Alaska. Dallas Seavey, 25, bested both his father and his grandfather with his team of nine dogs, becoming the youngest musher ever to win the nearly 1,000-mile race across the Alaskan wilderness. His winnings included $50,000 and a new truck. Gathered here are images from the Iditarod and other events from around the globe.(29 photos total)

Can't believe Euroweenies are putting on Euroweenie versions of this race. What's next, a longhorn cattle drive from Rome to Parée?

(I only come here to see what happens next. It normally does.)
Thanks for posting. We took a dogsled (actually a wagon) ride with the Seavey family business “Ididaride” in Seward a couple of years ago. It was great, and the dogs are awesome.
