After a 13 hours of airports and flights from Wisconsin to Alaska on Monday, I’m finally getting settled. It may take a few more days to acclimate to the time change, but I’ll get there. This week I am visiting schools around the Wasilla area and I’m looking forward to that.
Back at the WLC, preparations are in place for the start of the race. Each classroom was assigned a checkpoint (a few classes had to double up because we are a big school) and they decorated their door with their checkpoint name and other interesting facts. Each class – and other support staff – has a musher they are following during the race. When the race begins, they will move their mushers to the checkpoints around the building. This is a great way to get an entire school involved in the race bringing a different part of the world into your part of the world.
