    "Many people have died while adventuring in the Alaskan outdoors.
    Read their stories and learn from them."

    Interesting read, I remember reading 2 bear maulings this year, 1 in Denali and I think the other was somewheres around PWS both did not survive . I think some of those on the list could have been prevented with a little extra preperation . Try to stay safe everyone

    Looks like crashing and drowning are about the most likely ways to die in AK.

    Also, saw that it lists that John Martin (the bare foot to Iliamna guy) as "missing"...I'll bet Dan Sullivan wishes that was the case....

    The other one was in Southeast - Chichagof Island, if I recall correctly.

    Anyone rememer the ex-Marine who was delivering a Cess AgCat who landed on a glacier near Mt. Spurr? Decided to walk down, though 10th Air Rescue was ready to pick him up. Never heard from after he climbed out of the airplane, it was said.
