The e-Iditarod is coming

Walter McKenzie has put together an online forum for following the Iditarod. From the website:

As classes prepare to follow the Iditarod Sled Dog Race this year, why not consider joining the eIditarod (electronic Iditarod) project? We would love to have you join us!

Participating classes will

  • study the trail and musher biographies
  • create a wall-sized map of the trail
  • select a musher to follow in this year’s race
  • track the selected musher’s progress as the race occurs
  • follow the musher reaching each stop on the trail using Twitter and Blogger
  • complete the problem solving tasks you find at each¬†checkpoint’s
  • arrive in Nome vicariously with your selected musher
  • receive an official 2010 eIditarod class certificate for completion of the trail!

The Iditarod is a fascinating race and we have enjoyed following along the past few years.

  1. This sounds exciting! I am off to check it out.

    I have enjoyed your blog. Used to live in Chicago, so many places mentioned are familiar. Wish I could take my kids to places there now.
