Lance and JeanieB at 2008 Vet Check
Memories of last year about, as friends head off to Alaska, and this year I watch from my chair, fingers marching from one site to the next catching up with friends and with mushers plans as they prepare for the start this Saturday. As I remember, I will take you back to some events I didn't have time to talk about on my whirlwind trip last year.

Here is the link to all my Vet Check pics from last year:
