“An amazing race,” Bernie says. He’s talking about the Iditarod, kind of hard to follow from here in the Valley. “Why isn’t it on TV like the cross-country skiing in the Olympics? Anyway, Lance Mackey and his team of eleven dogs, led by Rev and Maple, won the race, pulling into Nome in just under nine days. The big move was a run of 140 miles with almost no rest from Nulato to Unalakleet. Am I saying it right?”

Bernie’s asking me if he’s saying something right?

“Where are these places?” Now he’s busy with maps. “If we weren’t so caught up in this Jason thing, we could make a quick trip up there. Alaska sounds good.”

The Jason thing, so hard to keep all the details straight. For starters, he’s Colonel Bob’s son. Ray’s his first name. The Jason part comes from this woman we’re also looking for.
