I suppose it could have been worse. One of them might have gotten a hang-nail.

This should be a lesson to all those metrosexual lower-48ers, Alaska is not your cup of tea. Stay home and get a subscription to Alaska Magazine or National Geographic instead of making a laughing stock of yourself.
VERY well said! These "survivor man" wannabes definitely should be billed for the cost of their so-called rescue. That was disgusting, shameful and I hope they were immediately "blue ticketed" outta here!

Oh my God! ROTFLMAO!! Tears baby tears.. just imagine what would have happened if a bear would have wondered on by..

I can see it now "State Troopers reported finding the individuals with brown undies and crying like children. They were taking to the local nut farm for observation!"

Is this really the Lone Traveler? The one that posts here?

That was the shortest and most expensive vacation in Alaskan history
BWA HA HA HA HA HA BWA HA HA HA HA HA

All that aside that HAD to be embarrassing..

The shortest trip I ever saw anyone make to Alaska was the fellow from Texas who was going to be a police officer with us in Barrow. I was sent to the airport to meet him. Easy to pick him out. Cowboy hat and cowboy boots. You could see the horror in his face as his head looked like a boobing doll. Those eyes constantly trying to take it all in.

Back then when they unloaded baggage off of the planes they drove a front end loader out on the ramp. They pulled it up close to the cargo doors on the plane and just unloaded the bags straight into it. Then they drove it back over to the terminal building and opened up an overhead door. The loader then gently dumped the bags on the floor. You looked through them until you found your own.

After he saw that he said something about needing to check with the airlines about his return ticket. That was it. He lasted about 20 minutes. MarkAir was able to get him booked back on the same plane going back to Anchorage.

At least he got off the plane. Years ago, a teacher came here who wouldn't even do that much.
