May 8, 2014: Adrian Knopps, Wilderness Survivor

Air Date:
Heard On Route 51

This week, we’ll have a special, hour long conversation with Adrian Knopps, a Michigan man with ties to central Wisconsin, who survived a harrowing week in the Alaskan wilderness without adequate food, clothing or shelter. The 51 year old bear hunter was stranded on an island in the Misty Fjords National Monument after a boating accident took the life of his friend and partner Garrett Hagen. We’ll talk to Knopps about the techniques he used to survive and the role his faith played in keeping him alive. Knopps’ story has received national attention since his rescue last September.
