Went to the wild stuffed animal place and saw cool dead stuff. Then we(Shelleys parents and Aunt from Maple Ridge)did the 5.5 hour jaunt to Dawson for Klondike Days(to celebrate when they found gold). Saw the parade on one day, and watched the mud bogs the next day!![36]

My new Cat. If I could just get buddy off..... One of many used in the Alcan Hwy project.

Crank it up!! Was a 4 banger with all the goodies!!
61044

A fire used to burn garbage at the dump near Burwash(Yukon) around 1999, was picked up by the wind and burnt a bunch of the town down!! This is at the front of the museum there.
61045

Lynx.
61046

Stuffed(not with the good stuff!!).

61053

Moose hide boat.
61054

Suzuki...or whats left of it! All the important parts are there though, just add gas!!
61055

Hows this for a sweet ride? Whether your cruzin' Stave or burbling down Robson St. this is the kind of shit I like to turn heads with.:D
61056

The start of the Dawson City parade. We are sitting on the S.S. Keno, a paddlewheeler from the gold rush days.
61057

The boys in blue wearing their reds.
61058

The "has beens"....ex-bikers in powered chairs!!Funny bunch them!!
61059

The kids on their bikes.
61060

These two got off and on these Penny-Farthing bikes like clockwork, no groin smashing going on here!
61061

The little punks and their castle/pirate ship thing.
61062

The Palace Theatre front.
61063

It took me a second to figure it out. Back in these women "cater" to men/miners of any sizes for gold. Who's taking the one in the blue?:confused0006:
61064

Ah yes,.......... the Corona Girls. And the back rims had been cut and rewelded so that the car would bounce up and down like crazy, the girls giggling the whole time.......[36]
61065

The "Black Widow", a Chev powered Willys pickup.
61066

The "Frogger" doing a brakestand on the main street of Dawson, warm up those Boggers for the camera!! His exhaust came out the front fenders.
61067

Last year this was the "travell-anche" due to it's striking resemblance to the Chevy Avalanche. The old Binder' kicked ass too!!
61068

"Hi Sbags"!! She new trouble when she saw it!! These folly girls threw out candy to the kids in the crowd(no...really!!). Nice old fire truck too!
61069

Smokin'!! This is the fire departments efforts.....

The real "Snoop Dogg". Another cool truck.

Cool pics, I was up there in '83.

Just outside of town we explored a bunch of dredgers.
Also watched the outhouse races.
