I haven't read your story yet since I came over for a visit and found this first. I laughed so hard Jer asked me 'what's so funny?'. Then he laughed just as much.

Very relevant.

I watched a program recently entitled women of the Yukon which covered the gold mining times and mentioned Dawson city, showing an old picture of the fair view hotel.

The names would be familiar to you; Nellie Cushman, Mollie Walsh & Belinda Mulrooney.

Mulrooney who crossed the Chilkoot trail in 1897 I understand was the richest woman of the Klondike but lost it all with the help of an embezzling husband and with the aftermath of the First World War.It was interesting programme about their lives and gave an insight into those times with frequent pictures of Dawson city.

Best wishes

thanks, y'all.... sometimes we have a choice of laughing at ourselves, or crying.... let's keep laughing.

lindsay - there were some pretty amazing women trekking over the Chilkoot trail back then.... i think Ms. Mulrooney was the lady who carried a load of soap and a washtub over on her back, in addition to the required ton of food, and set up a laundry and a bath house in a tent. she made a fortune keeping everybody clean.
