No More Chilkoot

Dear Self –

Next time your dear friend, Martha, says – “Hey, let’s hike the Chilkoot!” Know that that is her code word for Whitehorse? Tell everyone – “Chilkoot” – pack your backpacks and then detour to White horse! Don’t tell anyone! We loved the Chilkoot the first time – we were okay with the second time – we were ok with it the 2nd time – but we promised no matter how old we get – NO MORE CHILKOOT! Martha is 65 right now and I’m 63! It kicked our butts.
