An Alaskan Affliction
An Exciting “Best Of” Remote Alaskan Adventures
An Alaskan Affliction is packed with pure entertainment, featuring highlights from decades of Alaska hard core adventures. It opens with unforgettable dog mushing to embrace the best of the Interior's extreme winters, and snowmachining that doubles the thrills and mishaps of travel over river ice, through blizzards, and sudden whiteouts. Summer offers the finest river journeys. There are sudden storms, log jams, whirlpools, and wildlife encounters in the immense panorama of wilderness and water—with a vivid portrait of the dynamics of being a team member in the bush. The remote prospecting stories are thrilling and risky, and demand a lifetime of bush skills. They end with a resounding bear story that catalyzes the true essence of living and exploring as an Alaskan. All are top notch adventures with good dogs and old machines, undersized kayaks and cantankerous boats, with a touch of lunacy and a can-do attitude, both essential dispositions for exploring Alaska's wilds.
