June 22 – Rats

June 22 – Rats “Forgive me Father, it has been more than a week since my last blog….” Now I have that confession off my chest, let me share another one – I am fighting with my wife. It’s not about money, or the kids, or the fact I don’t hang my towel...

June 14th – “Finally, Sleep”

June 14th – “Finally, sleep!!” The Yukon presents and provides so many great opportunities.  What it did not allow me to do however, was to sleep.  The land of the “midnight sun” was not conducive to a long-term visit from The Sandman.  There is nothing like lying in...

June 11 – The Spirit of Adventure

June 11 – The Spirit of Adventure The sign on my office door says, “Not All Who Wander Are Lost”.  I bought that sign because I was already contemplating the trip I have now finished, and felt it an inspiring slogan to remind me each day to find the courage to stick...

June 5th – “Striking Gold In Dawson”

June 5th – “Striking Gold In Dawson”   Another great day in the Yukon.    It started off with an 8:15am tour of a working gold mine just outside of Dawson.  It was just me and a young couple from Winnipeg on the tour.  They were Jets fan, but we won’t go...

June 4th – The Klondike Highway

June 4th – The Klondike Highway My day started like almost every day of my life starts, with a coffee from Tim Horton’s. Thank you youth group for all of your gifts cards. I am motoring through them!! I then began the long, long journey from Whitehorse to Dawson City...

June 3rd – “I’m Here!” I finally made it to the Yukon. I’m so excited to spend the next week exploring this amazing territory. I’m spending the night in Whitehorse and then driving 600kms tomorrow up the Alaskan Highway to Dawson City. It’s going to be an adventure....
