u might think the 440 in kobuk 440 signifies how long the race is in miles. u would be wrong. it’s actually the number of things that go wrong every single day. the more u know.
it’s also the number of dogs nic petit has when he decides to leave the other 407 at home
of course, while 440 things are going wrong, another 440 things are going right :)

Billy Shungnak: the weather improving, wind has died down. visibility is 3 miles, light snow.

Jeff King hit his SOS button, 5 miles outside of SHG this morning and the trail crew responded and have brought Jeff into Shungnak. He is warming up and drying out, in good spirits now.
To be clear: Jeff and his dogs are all safe and doing well.
The trail crew retrieved his dogs; we’re glad to have trail crew with mushing experience! Clay Beck and Kelly Marcus have mushing experience. Clay was the one who assisted with Jeff’s dogs.
