Our Neighbor: Esko teacher goes on the ride of a lifetime
In the middle of nowhere, with a swollen face and astride a bicycle, Esko schoolteacher Charlie Farrow wasn't worried about his physical condition.
In fact, he was in his element.
Farrow, 53, recently completed the 354-mile Iditarod Trail Invitational race -- which is held every year on the trail used by the Iditarod Trail sled dog race.
Conditions aside, there was no place Farrow would rather have been.
