Registration closes on January 31 for the eIditarod.
If you have not followed this amazing race in the past, I would encourage you to do so this year. And, I would encourage you to check out the eIditarod project hosted each year by Walter McKenzie. You simply join their Yahoo group and follow along at the level that suits you.
They offer projects, lesson ideas, information and encouragement as you mush alongside these amazing men and women in the wilderness of Alaska.
Here are some previous posts of mine, at Delighting In His Richness, about the Iditarod and how we took advantage of the eIditarod project.
Also, be sure to check out the official Iditarod website for more background information on the race, the mushers, and the dogs.
