My newest essay, "The Spell of the Yukon" is in the current issue of Gray's. Most of my friends don't have the 13 bucks required to buy a copy of the journal, so I'll tell you what it's about. This story tells the true tale of Bill Mixer's prolonged adolescence as he travels north above the 60th parallel.

Below is me and Mike Bailey with a limit of greenheads.
