I leave for the Yukon today (Sept. 6). For the next four months, I will call Pierre Berton's childhood home my home—an honour and privilege that still surprises me.
I think part of me believed this wasn't really happening, but that it was all an imagined dream. But I've received my instructions and my flight information, and all the other details that will guide me through living in Dawson City.
I am excited, but I am also anxious.
