I couldn't resist that headline. I've been repeating it in my helmet for several days and several hundred miles. So, as I understand it, a "Sourdough" is a true Northerner; someone who originally came to Alaska or Yukon for gold, or someone who is a hardcore arctic citizen through and through. "Mayo" is the town of Mayo, a stop I made on the Silver Trail on the way to Keno. And "moose turds" ... well, you'll see the photo.
An update is overdue. I spent nearly a week in Dawson City and two days in Keno City. I have a new attitude having decompressed from such a hectic pace: 8000 miles in one month. I'm near 10,000 for the whole trip so far--not bad considering I only had 4500 cautious city miles experience before I left. Almost time for a third rear tire. I estimated 20,000 miles total to get to Argentina. I could hit 20K before Mexico City. Revise, revise, revise! Big ride planned for the next couple of days up the Canol Road to the Northwest Territories; all dirt, no gas for 260 miles, then 280 miles. Keep your fingers crossed.
Some more random photos without context or comment taken in and around Dawson City, YT, and Keno City, YT. The set is called Whitehorse, where I spent far too long (and too much) uploading them.
