The Three Watkins Return Home

Home to Nome!

Bridgett, Scotty and new baby boy, Timber, fly back to Nome this morning.


Before Timber's birthday, Bridgett had been on pregnancy bed rest at the kennel for nearly two months. Since Scotty works full-time at Wells Fargo Bank in Nome, he commuted back and forth, nearly every weekend.

The family was together for the four-day Thanksgiving weekend but truly celebrated on Sunday afternoon November 27th - when Timber was born! Sincerely, a day to be thankful for!

Needless to say, they are relieved to be going home to begin a new chapter in their life.

Bridgett says that she and Timber will be at the Copper Basin 300 - so, he's officially a Red Team member (see the hat?!)

Wooo! I wondered about the "mushingless winter" comment. Go Bridgett!

Blessings rain upon you, for sure! I saw the notice that Nome was not able to get its last fuel delivery, so I also hope for continued warmth and safety for the new family.

Congrats to mom, dad, grandma and grandpa - a new musher to carry on the tradition. I assume that the sled design team in working in the background.

Congratulations to Bridgett and Scotty! He's even cuter than seeing puppy pictures. The sled Allen built last season should see a lot of action over the next several years with 3 boys learning to mush. Thanks for sharing this family news and best wishes to the Watkins trio.

You know, as soon as I realized that Bridgett wasn't running Iditarod this year I wondered if this might be the reason. Congratulations to her and Scotty, and to the whole family!

Congratulations to all of you! How wonderful to have a little baby in the mushing family. The most fulfilling thing for me is being a mom. God bless you all.

What great news! Like most of the other comments, we wondered why Bridgett wasn't running Iditarod. Now we know. Congrats Bridgett and Scotty and newest musher Timber and all the family. Deb and Hunter in Ketchikan.
