Hello from the Yukon! Recently moved up here after visiting a couple of times, like most people.
I'm not sure what path my mail takes to get from the north to you. It probably goes to Edmonton, or Vancouver or Toronto, before taking off. Things have gotten to Europe really fast, about a week. To Canada and the US is a bit slower. Go figure.
Facts about the North:
- In Whitehorse we have about 20 hours of daylight on June 21, compared to about 5 hours on December 21.
- Our most successful campground is the Walmart parking lot.
- Buying groceries kind of sucks, but it's not as bad as you're imagining.
nature - mountains, lakes, oceans, flowers, animals ...
engineering - roads, highways, buildings, skylines, bridges, trains ...
and also - the quirkiest thing in your town, famous places, not-so-famous places ...
tea - I prefer black tea over anything, but also like rooibos, white, green, oolong, pretty much anything but chai.
coffee - I drink coffee at work but I'm not really a "coffee drinker" so the fancy stuff would probably be wasted on me.
hot chocolate - is always nice.
sweets - I really love chocolate and candy, especially things unique to your region.
meat - Mostly vegetarian, fish often, chicken rarely, beef and pork never.
dislikes - ginger, spicy candies
allergies - none!

Knitting patterns (any level)
