  4. Hello from Minnesota! I have to tell Neil thanks for a bit of wonderful humor this morning as I found your blog, looked at your pic in your back yard in London, all spiffed up, then saw the photo of you "adapting" to life up north. OMG, I laughed so hard, you Brits have the best sense of humor of anyone.....thank you for a couple of minutes of belly laughter and many good wishes to you both. J in Duluth

  5. Hi J, I'm so glad you liked it and thanks for the lovely comment. I still laugh looking at myself. One minute I'm hauling boats up a river bank with a rope-a-long and the next I'm delivering a workshop in a business hotel. It's nice to have the variety! Hope you're having fun in Minnesota. Neil.

  6. Hello, I am Annika Franzén from Sweden, I saw a program about your life (from 2017 I think with Douherty) and I am soooo jealous! I live in Stockholm and just love outdoor life and to work for your survival in the way you have to do in the kind of life you have chosen, I think that's what we are meant to do and that this is the answer to many problems people struggle with nowadays. Anyways, I will follow you guys on this blog with enthusiasm. Glad I found it!
    I do not have the luck to have someone to share my dream with but somehow I will live like you but at the moment I am working as a lawyer, criminal law and family law, I have realized it's just about as far from me I can get.....

    1. Hi Annika, Lovely to hear from you and glad you enjoyed the film. I think you are right in that this way of life can solve some personal problems, but not always of course and not for everyone. And there is not enough space in the world for everyone to live like this, sadly. I do hope you are able to realise your own dream. Whatever happens for you, you must be very proud of you work. You must help many people. It is a selfish life here. We love it, but sometimes I notice that we do nothing to help other people by living in this way. So nothing is perfect, of course. Good luck!

  7. Hello we just watched your episode on All4. We really enjoyed it and were impressed by your can-do attitude. We were wondering how you both are getting on, if you've had any more moose? Managed to avoid the bears? Any more interesting tales? Thanks for sharing. Iain and Angela in Glasgow :)

    1. Hey, thanks for getting in touch, Iain and Angela, So pleased you enjoyed the film. It was great fun to do. I got another moose two years later, which we are still eating cos we canned loads of it, and a caribou last year. On the hunt for another one this winter. I'm not updating the blog much any more, been too busy and internet is too slow, but yes we get ourselves in a fair amount of scrapes. Do take a look at our facebook page- yukonbushlife. I hear you've been pretty cold over there! Stay warm, Lou
