Yukon Quest Update-contributed by Danny Melville


The ‘meet the mushers’ event in Whitehorse saw hundreds of people lining up to have the mushers autograph their Quest posters. It was so cool to see Newton among some of the best in the world; he even signed a poster for me….. J

Photos show Newton signing and me chilling a bottle of wine for laterJ

See link below for a report in the Fairbanks Newsminer today…… several comments at the end…

Be sure to click on the photos to enlarge them and read the captions.

Congratulations, Newton!!
Less Than 12 days to complete 1,016 miles of Icy, Cold, Relentless Trail with your Dogs!!
Thirteenth Place out of the Original 29 teams that left Whitehorse is a GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT!!
You Deserve A Jimmy Buffett-style Margarita for your efforts and a big Pat on the Back!!
Congratulations, Mon!!
