North to Alaska
I've just found an interesting series on History Channel International, Klondike: Quest for Gold. Alá Colonial House and 1900 House and others of that ilk, it chronicles the travels and travails of a group of people reinacting the trip to the gold fields in the late 1800s. There is a woman in the group who plans to "make her living" as a seamstress and, as would have happened back then, a man is carrying her sewing machine for her. One gentleman is portaging a boat in pieces. Pretty cool.

Sitting for a bit and watching this is a relief. It's pouring outside and damp right into my bones, and the traffic was so bad it took me over 90 minutes to get home.
