The Last Alaskans


Appleton native Heimo Korth, one of the stars of the hit reality show "The Last Alaskans" on Animal Planet will be on the PhilCast at 4:30-ish today.


I'm now hooked on the show, and I'm not quite sure why. When you think about it, there isn't much to watch.

One episode was mostly following around a couple of guys in the woods trying to hunt down an animal to kill for food....with no success I might add.
Not exactly griping content.

But the scenery is wonderful and there is an attraction to the craziness of the lifestyle out there in the middle of nothing.

For instance, how Heimo was so excited to be washing out the stomach of a caribou in a river so that he could munch on it raw as a tasty snack. I'll ask him about that today, and he better not tell me it 'tastes like chicken' either.
