Channel 2 crews have asked Iditarod mushers a lot of questions over the years, and this year, we asked mushers what are some of the most memorable questions they’ve been asked by reporters in their time on the trail.

Mushing icon Dee Dee Jonrowe listed two questions: “Is this your first time, and what’s it like to be a girl on the trail,” she said.

“How do you answer that?” she continued. “I’ve never been a guy on the trail. I’m only a girl, so I can’t compare that to anything else.
