John, who owns the last dog team in town. He reminisced about when Nikolai had 18 dog teams, and I asked him why his is the only one. "It's a lot of work," he said. He and his wife had led classes and trained dogs, but kids not that interested. "Today there are too many video games." He has been in Nikolai for 40 years, married a woman from town who picked out their spot on the lake 50 years ago, he said.
