Life in the Wilderness
So here I am, back in the wilds of the Yukon after a fantastic trip down south. I must say being asked to stay the summer and work was the best thing that could have happened as I knew I had to find work asap to earn some fuel and food tokens to enable be to sustain life on the road. With the Land Rover enjoying itself in the sun down in Arizona it enables me to get on with life up here in the North.
The Yukon is around the size of Spain with a population of 35,000 people with 25k of whom live in Whitehhorse. So with so few people and huge distances between towns, the Yukon is some real unspoilt wilderness. It works out to be 13.8 km per person. It is one of the least populated places on earth.
My life consists of Flying in and out of fishing camps preparing, maintaining and generally looking after clients. I must say they call it work but when it’s a laugh a day in this unspoilt beauty with truly wonderful people it’s really hard to look at it in that way. Amongst all that, on the rare occasions that I spend in town it’s still all gogogo from preparing for the next trip to helping out looking after Bernard and Amanda’s 4 children with everything in between, again its all hard work but so much fun at the same time…..
I will be back on the road at the end of the summer but funds come first.
Thank you so much to everyone for your support.
