Greetings to all my friends, television viewers, and followers here in cyberspace. From time to time, as we journey through life we arrive at a crossroads. Tuesday, September 24th, will mark such a turning point for me, for the season premiere of Life Below Zero will be the final episode of the program in which my family and I will appear. Many of you who have already heard this news have asked me why. I don’t know the full answer, I only know that after filming my moose hunt last fall no one ever called me back about filming again. No goodbyes, no thank you for over 85 episodes, no explanations. After a number of months passed I inquired as to what was up and was told only that the schedule was filled and they had no plans to film with me. I want you to know that I am grateful for all the support and feedback from all of you over the 6 years I’ve been on television. Here on the internet, and everywhere I go, whenever I travel, so many of you let me know how much my stories mean to you, and that means a lot to me. Every time someone tells me that they learned from what I shared, saw things in a new way, or felt inspired, I know that the message I was hoping to convey got through… and that is why I will continue finding ways to share with you in the future. Tuesday, 9/24th, 9 – 10:30pm in Eastern time zone, on National Geographic Channel. The final episode of Life Below Zero in which I’ll appear. I really liked this particular story and I hope you enjoy it too. #LifeBelowZero
