Winter is coming fast and six Alaskans living in the remote corners of the state are in a rush to prepare for the hard months ahead. Alone at the Kavik River Camp, a blizzard descends on Sue's camp as she sets up 'hand lines' between her most critical buildings so she can find them in whiteout conditions. She also prepares firearms in case of a wildlife attack. In Wiseman, Erik tends to two critical tasks: collecting water and wood. If he's unsuccessful, he'll face trouble very quickly.
