Every man has a dream.
For one of our contributors, Kelly Mock from Whitehorse, it was to carry a “Bubba” (mini keg of beer) over the Golden Staircase to Happy Camp.
Arriving on the solstice, he bought a round for the house.
I hiked the Chilkoot with Kelly in the late 1990s and, at that time, I thought it was impossible to carry more booze (photo).
I stand corrected.
The Chilkoot is without doubt one of the very best hikes in the world. The trip to Skagway is half the fun.
