Winter seems to be holding out enough for the 31st running of the Tustumena 200 sled dog race. Race Director Tami Murray joins us this week to talk about how the course is shaping up, which local teams will be lined up and how you can volunteer (just go here). An official starting location will be announced before the race on Jan. 27.

Alaska is big. Emergency beacons and satellite communication devices shrink the time it takes for search and rescue crews to find you in an emergency situation.

Chris Hanna and Jenny Neyman, of Soldotna, know from snow-cave survival experience how important those devices can be, and Lt. Col. Scot Milani of the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center knows how they work. Join us to find out more.
