Thanks to the Sour Toe, I’m a Sourdough!

Dawson City, Yukon – Martha and I are in Dawson City, Yukon for the Tourism Industry Association of Yukon Annual Conference. Hearkening back to a time at the turn of the Century, Dawson seems like a movie set. With wooden boardwalks, dirt streets, false front buildings and interesting people around every corner, the past comes to life.

Yesterday evening was punctuated by my SourToe Cocktail- Yukon Jack Whiskey consumed with an amputated toe. To successfully be recognized as a sourdough, the toe must touch the lips. Not wanting to miss out on a technicality, I let the toe swirl around in my mouth before depositing it back in the glass for the next initiation!

. . . and so, I am a member #20985 of Captain Dick’s World Famous SourToe Cocktail Club at the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City Yukon. If you visit, look me up in the registration book!

How are retreats affected by COVID-19?
