Ohhhh, they're getting close! Jeff King, who is in the lead, made it to White Mountain this morning at 6:34. That means there is only one more stop, Safety, before getting to Nome! There is a mandatory 8-hour stay at White Mountain. This is due to the fact that they must really pack up a bunch of stuff and even switch sleds because there is a lot more ice between these last checkpoints due to it being Bering tundra without any tree cover. King should come in sometime tonight then probably. We will be there, no matter what time. I will be taking a ton of pictures.
