01/11/20 01:22 AM Winter Survival Story by AKSAR

A guys cabin burned down, and he was forced to survive for 23 days in subzero temperatures, using only what he could salvage and improvise.

Read his story here: Survivor

Video from the rescue helo

We've had a very strange winter so far. Hardly any snow all fall, and very warm, in fact 2009 was the warmest year on record in Anchorage. Then right at Christmas time we had a good dump of snow and it turned cold. And has stayed cold ever since. Skwentna, near where this story takes place is in the Susitna Valley, about 70 miles north of Anchorage. Temperatures in Skwentna have dropped as low as -32 Deg F (-35 C) during the first week in January. And more snow up there than we've had in town.

A reminder that rechargeable batteries and devices do best when periodically recharged. How often depends on the device; some every three months, others yearly.

01/09/20 10:27 PM Forum Outage - Apologies by Doug_Ritter

We are trying to reconfigure the various equipped domains and at one point this afternoon that basically made it impossible to access the forum. Sorry about that.

Having apologized, don't be surprised if it happens again next couple days as we try to undo a couple decades of domain weirdness.
