When disaster strikes in the wilderness, survival requires understanding.
-Tom, the backwoods expert who lost everything.
-Eric and Connor, wealthy brothers on a hunting trip.
-A group of tourists, stranded by the same earthquake.
Wilderness Spa brings these travelers together to survive catastrophe in the Alaskan wilderness. They amaze themselves in their ability to coalesce and work cohesively in the face of hunger, injury, insecurity, and possible death. With that on their minds, they explore statistics, logic, social justice, and challenges to philosophies and social norms.
After rocky starts when new members enter the group, they learn to find the best in their fellow travelers, how to help, follow, and lead when necessary. Nothing is ever easy. Without attacking each other, they dig deep to reconcile their differences.
Join the group as they make the best of what they have. Struggle along with them and reconcile your own philosophical belief systems with logic and science.
