Iditarod Trail Race Headquarters, Palin and Alaskan Tourism

Knik Goose Bay Road starts out perpendicular to the Parks Highway, but swings right until it is 45 degrees to this principal artery.  This road takes you past the Iditarod Headquarters into Lake Lucille Park, which is owned and operated by the City of Wasilla. Walking out to the water’s edge, you see what for many in the Palinista Community is True North and a good place to begin the Sarah Palin History Tour.

Todd Palin is an Iditarod champion snowmobile racer, having won the Tesoro Iron Dog, the world’s longest snowmachine race, four times. He and his race partner Eric Quam entered the 2,000-mile race, starting in Big Lake with a halfway stop in Nome and finishing in Fairbanks, with a new snowmachine in 2012.

The Palins also run a mix of lead and team dogs for the Iditarod, touted as the Last Great Race on Earth.

Did you know that Gov. Palin Generates $189 Million Yearly in Alaskan Tourism wholly related to her? She motivates 44% of tourist travel to the state and her favorable number is 21 points higher among Alaska tourists than the general public.
