I'm so excited. I love the Yukon - my first cooking job was up there, about 250 k north of Whitehorse... this time I'm going to be about 30 k from Mayo and 400 k north of Whitehorse. And we're staying in a fishing lodge, so no tents for us. Seems like more money is being raised - I had another job offer up there but I know these people so I chose this one.

They're drilling for gold and it's a 10,000 metre drilling program.

Whoo hoo!

How many folks will you be cooking for this time, Mame? It sounds like a big operation.

@Mame,
Oh Boy! MameELA in the Malamute Saloon.

10,000 meters? Surely, they're not drilling that deep. That's a long hole.

@Mame,
That doesn't look anything like Las Cruces New Mexico, I probably wouldn't like it.

My sister went to the Yukon. She found out that there were 10,000 men to every woman. She married the managing director of some company and moved to Dallas.

@spendius,
Spendi: I'm not the least bit surprised.

Shewolfnm - you got that right. Where d'ya wanna go? Or is it me doing the travelling?

Edgar - will do. There's gotta be at least one Mountie in Mayo.

Oh, I'm so excited. It's sooo sooo sooo beautiful up there, and we're on a LAKE, ie. body of water!! You can imagine, me, from the COAST, living on the ocean all my 51 yrs, now living in a land-locked PRAIRIE, looking forward to some water. Somehow, the Bow and Elbow rivers just don't cut it. I am so looking forward to this.

Will provide pics and soap opera.
