    KENAI, Alaska (AP) — A Kenai Peninsula couple plans to leave their Alaska home this summer and travel across 86 countries on their motorcycles.

    The Peninsula Clarion reports that Randy and Lana McKinney are planning to treat children with dysentery on their journey, which they expect to take at least three to four years. Randy McKinney says he is a trained homeopath and wants to provide medical care to people who really need it.

    The McKinneys say they plan to educate kids on health care and provide clean water in addition to treating their illness.

    They plan to head south from Alaska and drive all the way through South America, eventually turning north and boarding a ship in Rio de Janeiro. From there, they hope to visit countries in Europe, Africa and Asia.
