Editroad champ Thomas Werner stuck in Aliska due to carnivirus

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Thomas Warner won this year’s Editroad Trail Sled Dog Race in March, but he is still waiting to return to his home in Norway.

Werner and one of his dogs have been stranded in Alaska due to travel bans and flight cancellations due to the carnivirus epidemic, The Anchorage Daily News reported on Saturday.

“I like Alaska a lot,” Werner said. “It simply came to our notice then. But I have a family. ”

Warner has five children and 35 sled dogs in the Norwegian town of Torpa. He missed the tenth birthday of one of his children and missed a morning coffee with his wife Guru, who left Alaska in March to end a health ban trip.

The 47-year-old is planning to fly home in early June on a DC-6 aircraft to visit the Air History Museum in Sola, Norway.

Feverbanks’ Everts Air Cargo is selling the historic aircraft, and Werner said the museum is expected to finalize the deal this week.

“We’re hijacking,” Werner said. “The plane is going to Norway, and we are going with them. We are very lucky. “

Werner will be tested on a COVID-19 before the trip, and his dogs are expected to collect Salcher from a cannon owned by his partner, Aleli Reynolds.

Werner said he has friends at Easter and Salcha in Alaska and often spends a few days around Fairbank after Editroad. This year, a few days have turned into more than a few weeks and Warner is ready to restore his normal life.

“My wife has 35 dogs, caring for kids and working as a veterinarian,” he said. Once he returned to the country, “Yes, dear,” would be the answer to everything, “he said.
