"This year's Iditarod race is a bit different from past seasons. Oh sure, there are many of the same things going on, like dogs, sleds, snow, and mushing--but this year there's also GPS enabled tracking.

"If you go to the Iditarod website, you'll see a link on the right hand side to live GPS musher tracking. After a mildly annoying email login box (fake emails work, don't tell them I told you), you get to see a map of the race with live stats of the racers. Or at least 18 of the 90 odd racers. (Not all racers are participating in the trial run of the satellite tracking this year...)"
