    The National Geographic Channel’s documentary series, Life Below Zero, follows 7 people as they struggle to survive the treacherous and remote lives they’ve made for themselves near or above the arctic circle in the Alaskan bush.

Some of them are lone wolves; others have their families beside them. They fish, forage, and freeze in a wild-world that doesn’t care if they get through the winter or not.  The premiere of Season 2 of Life Below Zero will air this Thursday, April 17th at 9pm. 

Sue Aikens lives by herself at Kavik River Camp, a place so remote the address is given in latitude and longitude, located a few miles from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The ground is frozen year round so there is no way to dig a well yet - Sue has internet and telephone service - even if it does often drop in extreme weather.
