Mt. Redoubt has been causing havoc on flights and Tim was finally able to leave Nome on Sunday. It certainly was fun having him around, it's not everyday you get to talk with someone who has the perseverance and determination of Tim. Here's a man who completed the last 400 miles of his first year (2001) to Nome on a stress fracture of his tibia. We still put him to work though, dragging Hahnah on a sled and enduring our parties. He certainly was becoming a regular celebrity in Nome where people were addressing him around town. There was a nice segment on the radio yesterday (KNOM) when he was interviewed by them for a show called profiles. This week there should be an article in the Nome Nugget too.
