Joe Gaines and the Ididarod

This young man raises and races sled dogs. This will be his first year racing in the Ididerod. It costs these racers more than $1000 to enter and about $3000 for supplies that are dropped at check points prior to the race.

I asked him if he had a website so people could help finance his race. He didn't. So I gave him $20 that I would have spent on something foolish anyway. I wish it could have been more. I know my name won't be blazen on the side of the sled or even on the side of one of the dogs, but I feel as if I have a stake in a racer and his team.

I will definitely be following his progress.
