(whistling)…- [Announcer] This is John Earhart.…He is working hard coming home.…- Second day of the Dog Sled Open Championship…here in Fairbanks.…Started out a little bit rough for me,…just getting my gear ready from the minivan,…pulling everything out, setting up my GoPro rig.…I'm lucky that I thought to check every single camera,…make sure everything was operating properly.…When I took a look, it turned out…that there was an SD error card on one of the cameras,…which is unfortunate.…
