Human Iditarod Challenge

THE SCENE: Temp in my car immediately started dropping as I pulled out of the driveway.  About halfway to Swicket it was down to 8 degrees.  Didn’t take a final look when I pulled into the lot at 0445, but I figure it was close to 5 degrees.  I was pre-occupied on my drive over as I thought I…
