    5pm AKST Mar 29

    Grant Maughan is around Cape Nome and is on his way to the Finish!
    Showing ~11 miles to go!

    Klaus Schweinberger has another 250 to climb up before he's at the top of the descent to Topcock.

    Wind has picked up.
    Not in the face of Grant, but should make the descent more difficult for Klaus.

    Nome: 17:58 AKDT, 30 F, 130 at 15 k gusting 24 k, precip, low overcast. Light snow, fog/mist.

    2:10am AKST Mar 30

    Around 1:10am AKST, Klaus Schweinberger's tracker showed as stopped between Topcock and Safety. This is just past Solomon along the track. He shortly tracked as Paused at that location.
    This is at the same location Beat Jegerlehner was later identified as having stopped at a shelter, yet Eric Johnston later went past and Paused by the trail after detouring to Solomon (looking for shelter?).

    In AKST:
    • 5am Mar 29 - On ice out from White Mountain
    • ~6pm Mar 29 - arrived at Topcock
    • ~7pm Mar 29 - left Topcock for Safety
    • 1:10am Mar 30 - stopped between Topcock and Safety.
    So, 5am on the 29th to 1am on the 30th, less a one hour stop, for 19 hours?

    Nome: 02:53 AKDT, 30 F, 140 at 9 k, low overcast, fog/mist. Humidity 100 %.
    Winds to 28 mph since 5pm AKST, including light snow, light rain, fog/most, freezing fog.
