Flying in a private plane with your bros headed back to California, after a gig in South Carolina with Gavin DeGraw and Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction. It’s what many of us dream of as kids, but for Travis Barker of Blink-182 and Adam Goldstein (better known as DJ AM,) that dream became an unspeakable nightmare.
Aron Ralston is a classic example of someone who did the unthinkable. After slipping into a canyon slit, he amputated his arm from the elbow down in order to escape an 800-pound boulder. He was then rescued after making his way out of the canyon which he called home for nearly a week. In 2013, another astonishing story took place involving Marco Lavoie. A 44-year-old outdoorsman of Canada facing likely death under the most extreme of conditions. Sometimes nature’s most terrifying moments can only be faced head-on with the fiercest determination and will to survive.
Kaden and Arden Laga thought that they would enjoy a vacation in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness that straddles Montana and Idaho before welcoming their first child into the world. Fate had a different plan for the Iowa couple.
Mount Goddard — an isolated mountain that is home to the largest peak in its immediate region. Located in Kings Canyon National Park, Mount Goddard is 500 feet higher than any of its neighboring peaks. The surrounding area is incredibly wild and alpine — but Gregg Hein, a 33-year-old hiker, knew this. For him, it was just another adventure — an opportunity to connect with the great outdoors, just as he had dozens of times prior to this trip.
It was early Sunday morning on May 26, 2013. The Jascon 4, a tugboat contracted by Chevron Corporation, was out at sea in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 20 miles off the coast of Nigeria. The waters were rough, and as dawn had not broke yet, it was still dark. Carrying a crew of twelve, most of the workers were still in their locked bunks. 
Disaster at Sago Mine

Disaster at Sago Mine

West Virginia is a state widely known for it’s coal mining industry, a job that brings many men and their families financial stability, but it comes with an expense of great danger. There is probably no one more understanding of that danger than Randal McCloy Jr.
It was going to be a quick trip to a place she knew well: Obstruction Point, one of Jack’s favorite places in the whole world. There, as she’d promised, she’d scatter his ashes among the pine trees and summer flowers he loved.  Little did she know, Sajean Geer’s final tribute to her husband nearly cost her life.
Lost in Humboldt

March often brings chilly, rainy weather to Humboldt County, California. When the clouds finally parted one spring day in 2019, sisters Leia and Caroline couldn’t wait to get out of the house and venture onto the trails of Richardson Grove State Park, which sits next to their family’s property. At first, they bugged their mother, Misty, to come out for a hike. Misty had some chores to finish, though, so she told them that they would have to wait. The girls, just 5 and 8 years old, didn’t want to hear that. They needed the fresh air, sunshine, and woods that they loved to explore. When Misty finished her housework and packed a couple of bags for the hike, she went to find her daughters. She says that she didn’t worry at first because the girls often took short walks in the woods without supervision. They knew their way around, so she expected them to come back within a few minutes. Unfortunately for the family, that’s not what happened.
