Thank you to all sponsors and fans for your support and encouragement. Without you, not only would Evening Star Kennel been absent from the 2010 Yukon Quest, but this incredible sport and these wonderful dogs would become a thing of distant memory. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope that you have enjoyed following this amazing event.

Twelve Hours Until Starting Time!
Here we sit (Katie, Anita, Beverly and I) in the hotel room getting the final preparations ready for tomorrow's start.  Today we organized the truck and trailer and got all the gear Katie will need for the start ready.  We brought the dogs to the race track and let them run around and play.  Katie's mom, Beverly, sewed fleece on a harness for Whitney and sewed pockets on a vest for Katie to carry necessary oinments for the dogs.  By having the oinments on her body they will stay warm and pliable.  We finished the day with a wonderful dinner at Pasta Bella.  The dogs are now sleeping till 5:30 a.m. when we will wake them up to have breakfast before they embark on their great adventure.
