Thank you so much for your information. I guess I'm all set. Now if I could just get some good sleep tonight (couldn't sleep a wink last night), I'll be ready for the start. BTW, I remember you from years past, but don't remember if you ever said where you reside. If you don't want to say, I understand.
Happy to contribute whatever I can anntm. But it is Heidi who is keeping this particular thread up to date :) I'm from North Carolina. The highlight of this past year was meeting Tonya and Lance when they came to NC for this: http://iditarodblogs.com/news/2011/09/2 ... survivors/ Martha Dobson and Kim Roderick (dustylrr on the forums) were there too so it was fun talking with them as well.

Yes, I am amazed with all the links Heidi has posted. What a chore. Last year I had no internet at home. I did the whole race on my cell phone. Just a crappy one, not one of those fancy, dancy ones all the kids have. Now to have all these links available to me is just wonderful.
Can you believe we are about 14 hours away? I'm stoked. "See" you and all other posters tomorrow.
4. The "Pink Shingles" Nome webcam (aka KaiserCam) is being worked on and hopefully it will be up and running soon.
This is SO funny! How many times in the past years someone aimed the camera at the wall. This camera can be operated over the internet and it is a little tricky to get the hang of -- so everyone go practice when it is operational!
