OK, so Youkon, Wekon, Micron, anyKon will do... (if you've seen one you've
seen them all... right?)  :-)

[Geography 101] The '49ers found gold, but just a wee bit south... like in
California, in 1848 (the main gold rush was in 1849/1850). It wasn't until
1897/98 that the Klondike gold rush took place. The Yukon Territory is
slightly above California... like north of British Columbia and east of
Alaska. Also looks like only about 25,000 people live up there, of which
only 2 are pumpers. [class dismissed!]
