Cabin Fever is Fast Upon us.

Follow the lives of two individuals - one a dedicated arctic expeditionist, the other a cabin dwelling experimentalist - as they embark on an Arctic winter and deal with the kind of life, dreams and defeat only offered north of 60°.

'The North' has always been a source of intrigue and fascination for us southerners and has framed our national psyche despite the fact that the vast majority have never been there. From our obsession with an outdoorsman P.M. to countless tales of Berton's Yukon, we as a country root ourselves in the perceived windswept, frozen nature of the place.

"Ah, for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage
To find the hand of Franklin reaching for the Beaufort Sea;
Tracing one warm line through a land so wild and savage
And make a Northwest Passage to the sea."
Stan Rogers, "Northwest Passage."
