If you haven't gotten your questions in, there's still time when we go live Friday morning

The Bureau of Land Management is hosting a Twitter #tweetchat to discuss the 2012 Iditarod National Historic Trail and its centennial. Musher Dan Seavey and BLM Iditarod National Historic Trail Coordinator Kevin Keeler @BLMAlaska will host the #tweetchat on Friday, Feb. 10, 2012, from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. AKST (10 a.m.-11 p.m. PST/ 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. MST/ 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. CST/ 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. EST).

The Iditarod Historic Trail Alliance is sponsoring a “Centennial Musher,” Dan Seavey, to highlight the 100th anniversary of the opening of this old gold trail from Seward to Nome. Dan Seavey has been a steward of the Iditarod Trail for many decades. Dan mushed in the first Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in 1973, started the Seward Iditarod Trail Blazers over 35 years ago, was a member of the Department of Interior’s Iditarod Trail Advisory Committee, a board member of the Iditarod Trail Committee, Inc., and a board member and past president of the Iditarod Historic Trail Alliance.

During the #tweetchat, Seavey and Keeler will answer questions about the Iditarod Trail and dog mushing on BLM-Alaska land. Members of the public are invited to follow the #tweetchat on with the hashtag #iditarodnht2012. Questions can be submitted to the BLM in advance by email at or via direct message on
