A walk in 35 below
FAIRBANKS, ALASKA- A man in interior Alaska decided to take a 50-mile walk between villages with the temperature in 35-below zero weather and almost made it.
He was found in good condition about four miles from his destination.
The family of 52-year-old Lawrence James told authorities they were worried about him and mounted a search. He was dressed in winter gear for the walk from Birch Creek to Fort Yukon and told his rescuers he walked 15-hours straight and didn't get cold but his legs ached.
He says he wanted to see if he could make the trek since his cousin did it a few years back.
Police say he had a rifle with him but he could have been attacked by wolves.
