A couple of years ago we had a very interesting guest speaker at our Wagner Farm volunteer meeting. Pat Moon from Park Ridge came and talked about what it is like to be a professional musher. Pat travels around the world competing in dog sled races. On the day he visited with us he brought his sled, the outer wear that protects him and his favorite dog Hera. Pat's presentation was one of the most interesting programs we had that year. I thought you might be interested in following him as they are running the 2012 Iditarod. It is actually fun to log onto the iditarod.com web site and keep up with Pat and his team as they cross each check point. Pat is bib number 15 and is currently in 59th place. Good luck to our own dog sled hero!
