Vela Magazine turned one year old last week, and we’ve been busy celebrating with the launch of a Twitter account – @VelaMag – and a blog to go with our Facebook page. And, of course, there’s still the magazine itself: My most recent story there is called Three Kites on the Ice, and it’s about a kite-skiing expedition that attempted to set a new record for Arctic travel. Check it out!

Elsewhere, my feature from the August issue of Up Here Business is now online: Big Booze Ambitions (PDF). It’s about the Yukon’s growing craft beer and spirits industries. The September issues of both magazines are out now, too – I’ve got a feature in Up Here, “My Nahanni Luxury Cruise,” that’s not yet online, and a shorter historical piece on an obscure bit of Northern history: How the Trumps Struck Klondike Gold. What, you didn’t know that Donald Trump owes his millions to the Yukon?

I’m settled back home in Whitehorse after a busy few months of work/travel that took me from the Yukon to Alaska, the Northwest Territories *and* Nunavut – the ultimate Northern summer.
