We are flying into Anchorage on the 28th (wife from Sacramento, CA, me from King Salmon, AK) and staying at the Millenium Hotel, official Iditarod Race HQ. I have never stayed there, hope it’s nice. The lobby is AWESOME! It’s an older hotel and I’ve heard good and not so good.
Saturday the 2nd is the race start in downtown Anchorage. It was our first time last year and it was a hoot! The running of the reindeer (like running with the bulls only Alaska style) is pretty funny!
Sunday, out to Willow Lake for the re-start. We had some pretty good pictures last year. Hope to add to them this year. It would make my year if Sarah and Todd Palin were there and I got a picture taken with them. Not sure if she goes to Iditarod though. I’m sure she was probably there as governor but as private citizen, not sure.
Then fly back to King Salmon on Monday, wife stays through St. Patty’s Day and then flies home.
Have you ever gotten to meet Sarah hattend?
I know it sounds like you haven't but you never know.
The Closest I have gotten to meet Sarah was when my Great Uncle came to Town and we visited the Liberty Memorial (the National World War 1 Museum) and then Sarah comes and visits like 2 days later.
I was crestfallen to say the least.
