no mosquitoes in -40 weather, but the skidoos are a weird annual event called Trek Over the Top, a whole slew of Alaskans put on their snowsuits and get on their snowmobiles (as they call 'em), to drive over to Dawson, where they spent a weekend dressing up in Hawaiian shirts, drinking Yukon beer, and gambling at Diamond Tooth Gertie's. as in the photo, these are shiny decal-loaded skidoos...good boost for the economy, but a strange noise to hear in the normally-deserted streets.
