New Impromptu Word Variation Invented by Yukon author to describe a common Winter Activity

Skidoo Trailer

A new impromptu word variation invented by a Yukon author to describe a common winter activity occurred on a drive into town made by that author the other day.

In company with his wife and intrepid girl-dog-traveler Seew the trio kept meeting truck after truck in the oncoming traffic stream, all either towing large enclosed trailers loaded with skidoos or having one or more machines loaded into their box beds. – similar to what you see in the pics with this post.

Admittedly the day all these vehicles were traveling the road was beautiful and filled with bright sunlight flooding the surrounding valleys and mountain ranges, thereby fully justifying the destination all those trucks had in common at the summit of the mountain pass they were heading for. It’s a common winter playground for them and their snow machines on days as lovely as this one was.

A simple observation accompanied by a casually flippant remark turned this oncoming traffic stream of skidoo-laden trucks and trailers into long moments of laughter and chuckles at the implications of the words spoken, and in the process invented another word variation to describe them.

Watching their seemingly unending numbers, the author remarked to his wife, “Look at all them skidoo-kers heading up to the pass to dook (duke) it out together!”

Traveling these roads in the winter you just never know when a new impromptu word variation invented by a Yukon author to describe a common winter activity is going to bubble to the surface.
