Hermitude at its best

I have many, many moments when I want to live in a place like this. You need to register to read the article but it's free and believe me, worth it.

Some choice quotes:

"One hotel in town is rumored to be haunted and another follows an old tradition by serving drinks mixed with pickled human toes (the establishment says they are dehydrated and preserved in salt) donated by people in their wills or the unfortunate who suffer frostbite in the winter. (Those who imbibe are installed in the sourtoe cocktail club.)"

"Lots of residents, including the leading politicians, have criminal records."

"All I can say is, Yukon me, I con you."

"I helped bring television to my community," Mr. Jenkins said, smiling on a recent day. Without a hint of remorse, he explained how the town bought subscriptions for satellite television at residental rates registered in the names of dead people..."

"Yukon's premier, Dennis Fentie, was himself convicted of heroin trafficking..."

There is I wish blogger had a cut and paste function. One more tho.

"For its residents and regular visitors, Dawson has a powerful redemptive quality, a place where everyone gets a second chance and people of all classes, ages and professions feel protective and accepting of one another."
