This was cool having a choice of entertainment possibilities on the seat back in front of me. A USB port for keeping my iPhone up to snuff was handy. On the right there is also a 110v outlet available.
Ready to take the trip North from here.
From the airplane I can see plenty of mountain ranges.
Here's my jet sitting on the tarmac in Whitehorse
Get into the terminal quickly. It wasn't really that cold, just looks it.
My host was very nice to tote some of my luggage while we head for the vehicle.
We are in an industrial area away from the center of town.

Look here to find a complete ham shack in a trailer.
Eric and His Shack
The extra propane canister is to keep us from freezing.
Here's Eric getting the station set up to operate.
Ground, coax and 240v for the amp.
Here's the station all set up except we haven't found the keyer paddles yet.
Let The Contest Begin
I'm pretty happy things seem to be under control and we're ready to get started.
No ham station is completely without a trusty mascot. This is Eric's dog Scout.
Here is the tribander beam on this crank up portable tower at about 50 feet.
This tower was pretty stable all by itself and didn't need me holding it.
Man vs. Tower
Is all I can think of. I love this shot!
This is Eric's place of work.
I loaded up on trinkets.
A couple of guys had these things that were motorized like a weedwacker but had a big spinning brush on the end. It seems to do a great job on the light snow.
Starbucks (Yukon Version)
Just like home.
It looks like the moose was disinterested in my advances however really this was the friendliest moose I met on the entire trip.
