For the 22nd year, Paul Sayer, a Homer physician, is getting ready to take the same two-week, mid-winter vacation he has taken every year before: traveling by snowmachine along the Iditarod sled dog race course to Nome. Once there, he turns around and heads back to where he started.
Not content to let him have all the fun, another local doctor, Paul Raymond, is going with him, a trip Raymond has made more than a dozen times. Accompanying Raymond for the second year is his daughter, Kendra, an eighth-grade student at Homer Middle School.
