Making the Musher

Rookie mushers come and go. It takes countless hours and training to become an Iditarod great. On the next episode of Outdoor Explorer, we’re talking to a handful of mushers who are on that journey. They scoop poop. They cut up a lot of raw meat. It’s not glamorous work, but they’re chasing down a dream as hard as Iditarod sled dogs gun it for Nome.
