Sarah just posted this on her Facebook.

I can only assume it's Team 11's Snowmobile.

Ping to the Todd list!

I wish he was living in the White House. What a difference that would be.

I chuckle when you mention modifying the sleds,as it is i’ve done so many mod to my 2010 Arctic Cat CFR8 i’m not sure i can still call it a Cat,not much different for my 03 440 SnoPro that sports a F7 engine in the winter and a D&D F9 stroker for summer grass drags. PS I find it easier to get on it in the summer!!!!

Iron Dog Update!

The racers are taking their layover in McGrath; top teams are over 280 miles into the race and within 40 minutes of each other. Our prayers are with the injured pilots in the Iron Dog plane crash.

P.S. My 4,001 Replay on Free Republic!

So much has happened since F.R. crashed with the Iron Dog, I hope I don't miss anything.

This is From Sarah's Facebook on Tuesday:

Todd always says anything can happen in this race – especially during that second half. Guys have won or lost the race more than a few times by just mere minutes. Crashes, engine blow ups, avalanches, open water, animal and iceberg encounters, frostbite, broken bones, wrenching under pitch-black skies in unfathomable winds and frigid temperatures, etc. have been part of the racers’ and pre-race trail breakers’ challenges for the two decades Todd has raced the Iron Dog. (And this is his idea of fun!) These racers are tough competitors who love the great outdoors, and the volunteers who make the Iron Dog happen are also very tough individuals who thrive in these extreme conditions under the great North Star.

It’s an amazing race that takes great skill, mechanical ability, physical prowess and dogged determination necessitating a level of mental toughness that is so valuable and rare.

Thanks for following the race... only 1,000 more miles!

- Sarah Palin

Todd should hurry up and win as many Iron Dogs as he can before Jan 2017 when the Palins will have to move into the WH.

Thank you, dearest Kolath for the alert earlier yesterday!!


Willow & I are thawing out in my truck, waiting for Team 11 to cross the finish line! Top two teams just finished. We're thankful the guys are finishing safe & sound and, hey, if nothing changes Todd will be in the Top 5! (Fifth, as it stands with about 70 miles to go in this 2,000 mile long endurance race). It's a good day! I'll let you know...

That was one great Iron Dog Race wasn't it?

Here is Sarah on her Facebook late last night Ping!

Finished strong in the Iron Dog! Todd just told me, "Along with the competition, this was another great trip across Alaska seeing old friends in villages. Honored to have a picture with Alaska's famous elder, Sydney Huntington. (He's the one who gave us the quote, 'Common sense is an endangered species in government.') I'm overwhelmed by the hospitality and support shown to us in each town and village. I love these folks. It was a rough and tough race, but I'm glad we were able to finish, and I kept in mind I was racing in honor of our fallen warriors who secure our freedom."

Todd's race winnings are donated to The Chris Kyle Memorial Fund. For the kids and me, we're proud of our Iron Dogger, especially his dedication to family and freedom.

- Sarah Palin

WOOT! Go Team 11!

GO Iron Dog!

GO SARAH & TODD!

GO FREE REPUBLIC!
