When Alaskans get lost or hurt in the high country, they rely on a team of volunteers and professionals who are tough enough to come get them in the worst conditions. This week on Outdoor Explorer we’ll find how how they do their work and how we can help as outdoor users when we are lost. Regardless of assiduous preparation, people do get hurt and hurt or lost, and unwanted adventures are the result.
