Ep. 223: Surviving a Plane Crash in the Mountains - Brian Brown  

Brian Brown, along with his wife and one of his daughters, flew out of northern California in their personal plane, a Cessna 172, with plans to visit their oldest daughter in Mountain Home, ID. The trip was going well until weather started filling in the skies directly in their path. After diverting to an abandoned airfield to wait out the storm for a while, they saw what they thought was their chance to continue on. It didn't take long before their plans were drastically changed. The plane was engulfed in low-level clouds making it impossible for safe visual flight. In attempt to find a solution, the plane with the three family members aboard, slammed into the side of a mountain in Idaho. The book is: "Rescued: One Family's Miraculous Story of Survival"

Adventure North

“Adventure North fits the bill as a lively, entertaining and stirring account of teenage exploits in the natural world rarely sought out for, much less experienced, by today’s youth. In truth, however, it is an inspirational narrative for all ages on personal growth through pushing past one’s comfort zone, reliance on others, and most importantly, friendship. While the title indicates the route taken by the pair, it easily symbolizes the upwardly character development that results.”

– Charles Friedbauer, Outdoors Reporter, Writer, Chaska, Minnesota
