Iditarod 1,150 miles of the roughest most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer she throws jagged Mountain ranges, frozen river, dense forest, desolate tundra and miles of windswept coast at the musher and their dog teams .Add to that temperatures far below zero winds that can cause a complete loss of visibility the hazards of overflow long hours of darkness and treacherous climbs and side hills and you have the Iditarod. A race extraordinaire, a race only possible in Alaska from Anchorage in south central Alaska were I live to Nome on the western bering sea coast. Each team of 12 to 16 dogs and their musher cover over 1,150 miles in 10 to 17 days it has been called the Last Great Race on Earth . Iam going to see them off this yaer .

Fur Rondy

Fur Rondy go from February 25 to March 6 and it is a 75 yaer tradition in Anchorage . Last yaer me and the boys whent to the parade down town . We had a lot of fun . Fur Rondy the streets come alive with winter sports , Native art and Culture plus tons of events for everyone to enjoy. The Fur Rondy Festival is a singnificant part of the history and tradition of Anchorage in the mid 1930's Anchorage was just a small town of about 3,000 people that stretched between Park strip and Ship Creek . There were no televisions or malls or movie theaters no video games ,ipods or computers not even an Iditarod . Winters were brutal and stoking fires shoveling snowan surviving the elements was the basic daily pastime in those day .
We are going to have fun this yaer .
