Upon entering the bay in early August of 1610, the ship spent the next three months examining and mapping the eastern shore of the bay, but found no passageway to Asia. During the ship's explorations, it eventually became stuck in ice in early November and forced the crew ashore. During the rough winter, supplies and provisions were scarce, and discontent became rife amongst crew members. Once the ice melted and the ship was free, Hudson planned to continue his voyage to further explore the Hudson Bay in search of a passage but the majority of the crew adamantly
"We rarely get lightning, even in summer. We were expecting blizzards and snow. Without snow, where do the seals make dens for their pups? The caribou can't eat ice-covered lichen, and so they've gone north. We are worried they will be weak, and the calves won't be born healthy in the spring.
Basically its the debate of who owns the Arctic. ! The Arctic used to be a boring place with only polar bears and Santa Claus and no one except canada wanted it. Now, due to all the “global warming” as some like to call it many more countries are becoming interested.

They were proposing to become the exclusive distributor to Major. On June 22, 1965, Nalley’s home office in Washington made a decision not to distribute Major’s products, refusing to give a reason.

Uhler explains, the expedition consisted of an impressive collection of scientists, artists, photographers and writers to explore the Alaska coast, from the southeast boundary all the way to the Seward Peninsula. Members of the expedition spent five days in Glacier Bay, and collected a wealth of data along with some memorable adventures. Soon after the Harriman party departed, the tourism and exploration in Glacier Bay came to an abrupt halt. According to Uhler, “In September 1899, a massive earthquake shattered the Muir Glacier. Masses of floating ice prevented ships from closely approaching the glacier for at least a decade, and the steamship companies removed Glacier Bay from their itineraries.” Over the next few decades, Uhler states; Glacier Bay belonged to a hardy assortment of scientists and adventurous entrepreneurs, as well as native seal hunters, fishermen and egg-gatherers.
Ada’s dream is to be able to live off the land that her father, who has passed, gave her. But that dream is hard for Ada to achieve since she lacks the knowledge necessary to run a farm. In Into the Wild, Chris sought the raw wilds and dangers of living alone in the Alaska bush. But unfortunately Chris didn’t understand how physically and mentally grueling it would be to face Alaska. Even though Chris was looking for a life of isolation without much human contact, he had many helpers along the way.
