Locals to volunteer at the Iditarod finish in Nome

Ketchikan residents Hunter and Deb Davis are on their way to Nome to volunteer at the finish line of the Last Great Race.

They talked to KRBD recently about their trip. Here’s a portion of that interview.

That was Hunter and Deb Davis talking to KRBD about their trip to Nome. They will call in from Nome during KRBD’s Morning Edition starting Monday to give regular updates about the race and their experiences.
