Come and listen to Alvah's amazing story about Wintering in Artic. Unexpected events left Alvah to face the Arctic alone, his boat trapped in the crushing ice and with a kitten as his only companion. His world was reduced to the icy hull of his sailboat and soon circumscribed by minus 65-degree temperatures, killing blizzards and marauding polar bears.
