The dog sled with bulbs was cool. But never wear Ontario hiking boots in the Yukon. Go for the big Sorels. And rent a car from a company that knows the north. If you’re going to drive an hour into the mountains of the Yukon, you need stuff. Like basic gear. And by the time you need it, it’s too late to find it. “Is there an emergency kit back there? It’s getting cold.”

After a morning of mushing, we actually thought about asking to hook up the dog team to the car. Because I was already late for my flight. And because Lisa was hungry.

“Emergency kit?! Stuart, there are no snow tires.”

I made the flight. But had to leave the Yukon in a hurry, smelling like husky. I have to go back. Tonight it’s Valentines in Calgary.
