Scott, I was lucky enough to visit the Yukon in 2010, and am headed up there again this summer. It is just as amazing in person as it is in your head when you read the stories in books like that. :)-Richard
I've always been very intrigued by history, and the history of the Yukon and the gold rush has been particularly interesting to me since playing the computer game Yukon Trail as a kid. Of course, I'd love to visit one of these days.
