A walk down memory lane

As a child living on Adak in the 80's, I innertubed in the snow on Kuluk Beach. I watched the houses in Navy 1 be delivered. And babysat for people in that area. Seeing the historical content of pirate gold, nuclear warheads and the influence of Adak to the war gave an incredible new dimension to my stomping grounds. It was an amazing walk down memory lane, and a great opportunity to bring new stories of my childhood alive to my children. I cannot wait to share it with my mom.

A totally original must watch.

Incredible story. The explosives around the island are terrifying. A truly authentic watch with some incredibly talented hunters. Loved the truly obscure history. Such an original show. Binged it with the whole family twice.
