Iditarod Re-Start Moved to Fairbanks

Today brought the announcement that Iditarod would re-start in Fairbanks on March 6th (about 360 miles from Anchorage where the ceremonial start will happen on March 4th).  Typically, it would re-start in Willow about 70 miles from Anchorage on March 5th.  Here is the full article, if you are interested:

As a one time veteran finisher of Iditarod, the trail would be partially new for me either way.  I'm a mix of emotions.... curious, excited, disappointed, nervous, etc.  We will make the best of this new trail, and are relieved to know Iditarod made a decision in the best interest of the safety of dogs, sleds and humans.   Ready or not, here we come!
