MELISSA BLOCK, Host:

Now, a story that we assure you has lost nothing in the retelling. When we hear from the storyteller Kevin Kling, we usually hear about his experiences. Today, he's going to tell us the true-life tale of one Bill McGee, a legend in the North Country.

KEVIN KLING: I said, well, Otto, what's the other version? He said, well, about a half a mile from where I picked you up, there's a gravesite and there's a gravestone with my name on it. 30, 90, 30, 90 all the way back to Minneapolis.

BLOCK: Storyteller Kevin Kling lives in Minnesota.
