1985 Northern Discovery Flight
As we'd planned when we passed quickly through on the way north, we spent the night of June 24th in Whitehorse, where I gathered more material for my "Rowdy Bars" book. Leaving a massive bar called The Sluice Box while I could still walk, I decided to climb the "clay cliffs" back to the airport rather than spend the money for a taxi. Somehow surviving that climb, I was unable to get as far as our plane, and slept on the grass on the runway approach. Fred and Joe did make it back to the plane, and spent an uncomfortable but very short night sleeping in it.
