Hobo Jim at Willow Trading Post

February 25, 2012

Alaska, Daily Post, iditarod, Iditarod 40, Mushing

The little hamlet, village or whatever they are calling it these days, of Willow Alaska comes alive next weekend for the start of the Iditarod. Thousands of people will flock to watch their favorite mushers on March 4th as they race towards Nome in the 1,049 mile dog sled race.

An Alaskan legend, Hobo Jim will play three shows at the Willow Trading Post on March 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. I saw him last year and he rocked the place!

Get there early as the trading post is rather small and fills up quick.

If you are going to be up here for the start this is s show you won’t want to miss!

Stay tuned for our daily coverage of the Iditarod on Mushing Radio
