The first thing to mention about Bob Kaufman is that he swam across Cook Inlet. But what’s more important to know, his friends didn’t try to talk him out of it. Or even wonder why he wanted to. On the next Hometown, Alaska, join host Charles Wohlforth and meet a man who is pure energy. Kaufman has started lots of companies, made innumerable films, and excelled at all kinds of outdoor sports. He’s the prototypical Alaskan achiever.
