Yukon Quest Contest

Okay, gang, here's the deal:  
The Yukon Quest is a 1000+ mile dog sled race which runs between Fairbanks, Alaska and Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada.   It'll start Feb 1st in Fairbanks.  It's a longer and tougher race than the Iditarod but you'll never hear about it because  it's not Anchorage.  Info at www.yukonquest.com   At any rate, the object here is to guess the time it will take the winning musher to complete the trip.  Think days, hours and minutes.   Contest is open to all on the good trader's list and will be open until race start on Feb 1st.  Winner gets a forum fiver and a handful of race merch.  Official times from the Yukon Quest will be used.

    Now this is not the end of the cigar. It is not even the beginning of the end of the cigar. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning of the cigar.

    LOL   An Outsider is anyone who lives Outside AK.  We go "Outside" to Seattle.

    18 entries so far and no duplicate guesses.   I'll keep an eye on that and PM anyone who duplicates.

    They're off!  15 mushers left downtown Fairbanks this afternoon headed to Whitehorse.  Good luck everyone!

    About 24 hrs in, the leaders are about a mile apart and 141 miles along the route.  There are 2 mandatory stops, 1 for 8 hrs and 1 for 24.
