Day 315 - August 12
It's Saturday the 12th of August. I only have 22 miles to go until I'm officially in Nome. Thom Ely from Haines joined me Thursday. It's been very, very cool having another friendly face to communicate with along the trail. We made it to the Satey Roadhouse late yesterday. Had a beer at the Iditarod's last official checkpoint. A gentleman by the name of Tommy runs the place. Beers are cheaper there than at the RO. Amazing. It's been light rain and no wind since I got to the Nome area. Doesn't look like anything different today. I'm starting to lose my tan. I should wrap up this part of the campaign tomorrow the 13th. I'm meeting with some Tourism Officials on Monday and hope to be in Fairbanks Monday night. By Wednesday I'll be hitching over to WHSE and if all goes well, will be on the road again by next Thursday or Friday at the latest.

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh! Since I'm getting back in August instead of September the support for walking over the trail isn't there so I'll be walking down the Klondike Highway instead. Bummer, but still an ok plan.

Dennis and Sherri Corrington are in Nome now visiting a friend whose a bit under the weather. It was nice to see them. They're in town until manana. If they have time they'll join me for a few hours along the trail. Of course, Dennis is already familiar with this part of my route. I've been following the end of the Iditarod for several days now. Hope to see them again.

Mitch and Vickie Erickson have been extremely gracious hosts. Thom Ely is a guest of theirs also. Mitch is a damn fine cook. Between their five kids,ten dogs, working, house guests etc...I think it's safe to say their lives are busy. Owoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!

Next update will be when I hit the trail in WHSE. Man that sounds so nice.
