Insight into early
Iditarods from Joe May
An old conversation with Cowboy:
Said I, “winning Iditarod is a fleeting thing—by the time the hang-over wears off, the euphoria fades, and the money is gone—unless you're lucky enough to be a girl, you find yourself buying your own beer. Congratulatory cards and letters in the mail box turn into bank statements, credit card offers, and L.L.Bean catalogs. The knock on the door that once held promise of a pretty girl wanting an autograph, or a rookie musher angling to suss-out “the secret”, is now a Jehovah Witness or the telephone repair man”......
Said Cowboy, succinctly. “But Joe, to get to that awful place, you got to first win the damn thing..EH?”
