“…(He) did not want to talk about the crash. He did not want to talk about his survival. He left some part of himself back in Alaska. It’s something he does not want to disturb or share. The wilderness can do that to people who face it alone. It becomes a private thing, an almost sacred thing.”
— Doug Beckstead from “81 Days Below Zero”
