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.

Last year, Liz Millman got wind that Dee Dee Jonrowe needed an extra handler. So she packed her life up and headed for Alaska. Hear from Liz on the next Outdoor Explorer. Photo courtesy Liz Millman.
