    Default Crash at puntilla

    Has anyone heard about the crash today out near Puntilla. I've heard a rumor that it possibly is Rob Stone. Any truth to this. Prayers sent to all involved.

    I just talked to a reliable source, and he confirmed it was Rob Stone. Prayers needed for sure, especially for the passenger.

    Prayers for sure. Wichman is a solid name is the sled community with uphill climbing races.

    As is Rob with his involvement in Alaska Outdoors Tv.

    Up date, Rob is out of surgery, after about 7 hours, what I heard was both hips and leg broken, facial lacerations, have not heard anything about Jason. It will be a long road to recovery for Rob. Keep the Prayers coming, they need them.

    Thoughts and prayers to them and theirs. I've always recorded and enjoyed watching AK Outdoors TV.

    It's been a tough couple of days as you could imagine. Rob's still in the process of being put back together. I don't have any update on Jason. Let's hope and pray for a full and quick recovery for both.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to all impacted by this accident.

    Appears that many Alaskans came together to do what they could in a time of need.

    Hi Float pilot, why not call it a chase plane, it was being used to follow the team and support them if there was a mechanical breakdown to one of their machines. They had a complete machine in pieces inside the "chase plane" It could stop at anyplace and repair the broken machine that was in the race. Just curious why it is not a chase plane.

    It seems like that would be the accurate term to use as that is the term used for other forms of race support. For example, off road racing uses "chase trucks" which are the vehicles used to support the race vehicles along the course. I don't see how it is different with this race. A bit off topic though.

    They had an update on Jason on iron dog web site. I really can't say more than that. Maybe The Lord will answer our prayers.
