This is a forum for general discussion of dogsled racing, with a special focus on Alaska, and is open to all. It is expected that this area will see the most activity during the months leading up to, and during the annual Iditarod sled dog race. Pictures from races can be posted here. Hosting is provided by the Bering Strait School District (BSSD), and the area is open all year. Care to be one of our volunteer moderators? Contact us!

It is race time 2019!! As I have grown to expect each year I pick up a digital bug or two as I rapidly access some unfamiliar sites while attempting to get the "most current" and "most revealing" information about this sport that I follow with vigor.

I just updated my browsers, anti-virus, anti-malware software and my Cleaner software, and then ran a full scan and restarted all my devices. I will do this regularly during racing season, particularly between the Yukon Quest and the Iditarod and then again following the Iditarod. In spite of my best efforts and reliable software, the trolls manage to infect me, so my advice is be diligent in protecting yourself and your data.

Enjoy the races, safely :!: :!: :D :D :D

I deep cleaned again today -- 1 Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) found and removed. Ready for the Yukon Quest.
