Prodigal Metamorphosis is not just about mushing– it’s about the big move I made from Minneapolis back home to Alaska after nine years (mostly) away. I came home to Alaska because I couldn’t stay away– who can?– but I also had one major purpose in mind: to run Iditarod. Prodigal Metamorphosis goes through my travels north, my time on the glacier, and some of the big steps towards ATAO. You could say that Prodigal Metamorphosis is the prequel to ATAO– It is how I made it to where I am now. Enjoy the story.
