Last week following the season finale of Life Below Zero, Sue Aikens answered fans’ questions about the crash and recovery process, living life off-the-grid, and being on the show. Check out these highlights!
@TommyG_TX: We’re glad you are still with us. Just a mite sore for certain. Quite a crash. What did your ride hit, a rock?
Ice heaves or jumble ice under the snow.
@Chewypuppy: Who took care of Kavik while you were in the hospital?
The foxes…and while they tried, it may not have been the best choice for temp wardens.
@CindyHe25573409: How are you doing now? Do you have any help in Kavik since your surgery? God bless!
I tried to do my own chores, but can’t. My nephew is helping me and my grandkids will be here later if I can swing it.
@Maracruise2: How did the camp hold up while you were away healing?
I can’t give details, but it might not have been the best choice to have the foxies watching camp.
@Ckbrouwer1: How do you manage all the chores?
I do them slowly, or change how I do them, and some I just can’t do so I called for help.
@Lachenda: Were you back in Kavik before the first people came out this year?
No I was not. I lost several clients.
@Shaynk: What made you move up there to live such a solitary life?
I like the solitude, I shine and am happy secluded.
@Sheri_russo1617: Is it mostly hunters that visit camp?
No, mostly ologists and eco-tourists doing rafting and bird watching. Hunting is 3-5 weeks a year here.
@Spyderapril: Do you not get lonely at all? I wish I could go off grid, just not sure if I could get use to being alone.
Nope I truly don’t. I keep my mind pretty busy and just don’t come wired that way.
@Bubzilla: Is there anywhere besides Kavik that you would live a secluded peaceful life?
Anywhere that caught my attention…I am an explorer. From boats to boots, sand to skies I want to do it all.
@Tabbie313W: What is one town “treat”, food, drink etc. that you miss and love getting?
White Castle rocks. Sliders!!
@MyaLovesLuigi: What are you getting for your birthday?
Food delivery I hope so I can make a cake. I offer free birthday cake and such to all fly ins.
