What, who or how and when did you first get involved with the Iditarod?
I First got involved with Iditarod last year after years of watching Bruce Maroney’s YouTube videos on the Iditarod and wishing I could come get involved in Iditarod.
What is your Why? Why are you here TODAY and involved with the Iditarod?
Definitely back to be a part of the culture of Alaska and to be of service and for the friendship, the interesting people you meet on the Iditarod.
Tell me about just one of your most memorable Iditarod experiences.
My most memorable Iditarod experience had to be last year, just flying out for the first time with the guys, with Greg and Scott, and flying into some of these same places, Finger Lake, Puntilla, Skwentna, and just the excitement of it.
What do you know for sure?:
What I know for sure in life is life is fleeting, love as much as possible, and get out and do cool things.
