It’s been a busy few weeks. I came back from Ottawa late in January, and less than two weeks later I hit the road again to follow the Yukon Quest sled dog race to Fairbanks (by car, not by trail). I’ve been home for a little over a week now, catching up on sleep, email, etc.

Meanwhile, I’ve had a few new pieces published.

My story about surfing in Tofino is in the latest issue of AFAR. It’s available online, but pick up the print version if you can – the photo spread/layout they put together is gorgeous.

For Longreads, I wrote about how The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates built a unique and important corner of the internet – in his comments section. It’s Yours: A Short History of The Horde.

My story about the 2015 Yukon Quest, with wonderful photos by Katie Orlinsky, is up online at National Geographic: Survival is the Ultimate Goal in World’s Toughest Sled Dog Race.

Alaska will no longer have bars on its state ferries. I wrote an obituary for them over at Hazlitt.

And my biweekly column for Pacific Standard is now through its second month. They’re all collected here.

After what seems like a long silence on the story front, I have a few recently published items to share:

First up, I’ve got a pair of Top 10 lists on NationalGeographic.com — Top 10 Foods to Eat in Ontario and Top 10 Family Activities in Ontario.

Next, now that World Hum is back in action I’ve been busy again over there. An interview I did with author Rachel Friedman was posted today: Interview with Rachel Friedman: ‘The Good Girl’s Guide to Getting Lost’.

A few weeks back Matador published this story: Profiling five national parks in Alaska.

And lastly, it’s not online but if you get a chance to check out the July 2011 issue of Reader’s Digest Canada, I have a short piece in there about The Boreal Gourmet, a locavore cookbook by Whitehorse author Michele Genest.
