The problem is that all those places are virtually inaccessible from the United States, unless we were to cross through Slumgullium Pass, or some such God-forsaken place.



And you can't find a decent meal on the trip:

Old Put - did he have anything to do with writing DAYS OF 49, did he take credit for a tune commonly sung in Poodletown camps, or did he filch the song from a plugged claim-jumper in Luckless Fuzzywuzz Gulch??
