Went out on a hike today. I covered about 5 miles or so, 8 kms for you kanuckistanian readers out there. It’s just a neat experience to see the trail going past with the sunlight streaming through the branches, the snow crunching loudly underfoot, catching a glimpse of a mouse trail, pine marten tracks, lynx… Read more
My family made the move back to the north in 1998. It was fall when we arrived. The winter snows began to fall in September, just as they did in my earlier treks to the north in the early 1980’s. Because my work inevitably takes me out on the land, and this is totally… Read more
2020 hindsight Predictions are easy, except when they are about the future. One thing we can all be totally sure of: the future is uncertain. There is no time like the present to review the past. The reason God made time was so that everything wouldn’t happen at once. The future has always been a… Read more
This business my family and I started in 1999 has just turned 20 which is a ripe old age for a cat, a ridiculous age for a dog, and just a great start on life for a forty pound lake trout.. I’m thankful for the many wonderful people I”ve been privileged to meet, the experiences… Read more
Seems it’s been awhile since I put a few thoughts on my blog. I’m not on a time schedule and I don’t want to pollute the internet with obligatory phrases, sentences and words more than it already is. You’re welcome! Gold and silver are starting to hit their own, with silver up around 3 percent… Read more
One of the great joys of being a social outcast in my childhood (and sometimes in later life too!) was discovering the healing properties nature provides those who take the time and input the energy and the suffering often required to get to know her. I guess I must have traipsed (i love that word:… Read more
“If only there were a way to get the current out of the river…” Well, there is they tell me! But that’s another story. Things are pretty peaceful in Teslin, not much going on to rattle your doors here at the moment, and even the ravens have fallen silent as the darkness of winter descends on… Read more
Had a wonderful three days on the water with the Morton Family. On the final day, we were making our way back to the dock when Mr Morton thanked me for making the trip possible. He asked me if I know what this means for him, connecting with three generations like this. He spoke of… Read more
It’s getting on in the year and although the weather is less than super attractive the heat is sure to arrive when the sun starts spending 20 hours a day overhead! Canoe-tripping was for me one of the greatest discoveries in the north. After exhausting myself for awhile on numerous mountain climbs and hikes through… Read more
The yukon has two seasons rather than the traditional four. Summer and winter with two brief transitional zones. Still waiting for the transitional zone; it was 20 below again last night. I decided to make the best of these days by taking a run up the frozen lake to a cabin which is open for… Read more
The main reason i decided to make my home in Yukon is the fantastic scenic beauty of the place. Oh, it’s great to be accepted even though you’re nuts, and there are a lot of really super people here, but turn it into rubble and i’ll be movin’ on, in tears. You know how you… Read more
