2011 Iditarod - Mitch Seavey headed back to Anchorage
2011 Iditarod News, March 10, 2011 - As I reported earlier today, Mitch Seavey was badly injured when cutting open a bail of hay this morning.
I just read in a story on the Alaska Dispatch website that he is headed for surgery in Anchorage, Alaska in an attempt to save the finger that he cut this morning.
I wish Mr. Seavey the best of luck. I know he doesn't know me, but I've met him a couple of times, and everyone in his family and kennel has been very nice to me.
