    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Reunion host Les Stroud announces that there will be an Alaska Experiment 2, and that they are taking applications at the Discovery Channel website. The next series was called Out of the Wild: The Alaska Experiment, and aired beginning in mid April of 2009.

      • Jeff and Elizabeth announce that they have quit their old "cubicle life", and are returing to Alaska to work at a remote fishing lodge.

      • Greg and Bernice announce that they are expecting a baby, and that they plan to name their child Hawkins, after the glacier where they spent the three months in Alaska.

      • When discussing the difficulty of hauling water, Bernice says that while Greg chopped wood every day, she went up the glacier to fill the water jugs.

      • When they mention the Wises' animal deterant measure of surrounding their cabin with urine, Paul laughs and says no one he knows of ever really tried it, and it might actually have drawn bears to them, by advertising the presence of a non predator. Dennis says that it did drive the wolves, who had been coming within ten feet of the cabin, to stay at least 100 yards away.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Jeff: (to Elizabeth, when reminiscing on sawing wood using a two man saw) I used to like, thank the Gods that you rode crew in college, because we would saw, and saw and saw and she was there every pull, never complained, and it was just like, 'How can she not be complaining when I want to complain in the worst way?!'

      • Jeff: (on the danger of bears) The physical danger was real, for sure, like Paul said, but the psychological game that starts to go on as you're lying in the tent at night and you hear the splashing in the creek behind here, like, 'That's a moose, right?' (they all laugh)

      • Paul Claus: There's only one thing you can say accurately about a bear, and that's 'unpredictable'. And with that in mind, you have to take precautions and think things out.
