I am very pleased & excited to announce a new partnership for the 2014-2015 Race Season between Team Anadyr and a longstanding member of the Alaskan business community: 3M of Alaska.

3M has long been a supporter of Iditarod. It is 3M reflective material wrapped on the tens of thousands of Iditarod trail stakes, allowing us to see the trail regardless of weather conditions or daylight.

Now they have focused their involvement in the Alaskan mushing community by partnering with Anadyr Siberians.

Team Anadyr's newest partner in our journey towards Iditarod 2015 is a globally innovative company whose recognizable brand is associated world-wide with quality and ingenuity. 3M is supportive of local communities and environmental sustainability, two factors that are extremely important to me. 

A leading force in the world market, 3M produces thousands of innovative & helpful products -- many of which I use to help get me down the trail in a safe and productive manner. Traveling by dog team safely & productively translates to efficiency, which ultimately, leads to success!

Last year, 3M kept me from losing my team in a whiteout, kept my gear and equipment safe, kept my dog food protected from the Alaskan wilderness, & helped heal my dogs on the go.  Stay tuned... I'll elaborate how in upcoming highlights of 3M products that I have found invaluable to my mushing success.

We are very excited about this partnership... Thank you for your support 3M, and again, welcome to the team !!

The Alaska branch recently hosted me in their branch office to celebrate the kick-off of our partnership for the 2014-2015 Race Season.

checkpoint sponsor: Nikolai

Approaching the village of Nikolai during the 2014 Iditarod.

Big thanks to Jan Tharp, a.k.a. Daisy, who is sponsoring the 2015 Checkpoint of Nikolai!  I met Daisy and her friend Ken when they visited Anchorage last March for the ceremonial start. They took some fantastic photos of the team and I!

Nikolai is the first community the mushers encounter in the race since leaving Willow three hundred miles back. The village feels like a haven after enduring the rigors of the trail out of Rainy Pass and Rohn. The people are welcoming and friendly and we felt very well taken care of there.

We are looking forward to seeing the people of Nikolai again this March & it will feel extra sweet to arrive knowing that Daisy will be cheering our arrival from her home in Minnesota!

All photos except the top one by Daisy's friend Ken !

A big thank you to the Bay Area Siberian Husky Club for sponsoring Papas for the 2014/2015 Race Season! 

Papas is a very sweet, energetic boy. Silver-black & handsome, he is always ready to jump into your arms for a hug. He has participated in several mid-distance races and a 100 mile skijor trip with a friend deep in the wilderness of Denali National Park. He is also the father of the Solstice pups, Bike, Mygga & Svidd. 

Thank you, Bay Area SHC, for your support of Papas & Team Anadyr !!  xx
