Conditions of Use
I am going to talk about the Iditarod Dream. Well I will start with the boy. His name was Dusty. Dusty is running a race with his dogs. He had to make a trip to the south to deliver some medicine. He had done the same thing last year and he remembers the temperature thirty-below-zero and how his glasses were coated with ice and how he couldn’t see the trail not one bit. But instead of getting 1st he still got a good place 4th. He replaced his glasses with contact lenses and his team was better than ever. If he couldn’t see the track anymore he wishes that his dogs would lead him the way.
The day before the race they gathered in a little area and they called it a pre-race meeting. During the pre-race meeting they were choosing there positions and he picked the position number (#) 6 a good position he had did the same number last year as well. He sees familiar faces from last year like Andy Willis the favorite to win this year and Dusty was determined. Noah Burmeister who had come all the way from Nome. Dusty went with his father for his final nights sleep before the race
The next morning was the day of the race he and his father arrived early 2 hours earlier and it is zero degrees which is perfect for the dogs, and if it gets any warmer then the dogs would over heat. The race begins on frozen Lake Lucille and 79 miles north through the forests, over windswept swamps, and up the ice covered Yentna River to a cabin called Yentna Station, the halfway point.
Dusty is in the lead and he sees no one in sight. At the end he wins the race and how delighted he is! Every one thinks he is hurting his dogs but that is a lie, even ask their parents if you don’t believe me. He respects his dogs just the way he respects his friends and family and treats every one and every thing equally.
