The Yukon Territory is a harsh environment that has very little food and shelter. The Yukon will kill you if you are stupid.
A man and his dog set out on a trail all alone with not much supplies. The man knows spit crackles on the ground at -50 degrees and when he spits it crackles in the air.
The man falls through thin ice while walking on the river and lands in 3 feet of water.
The man takes off his gloves to build a fire. When he has his hands in the open his hands freeze. He built the fire under a tree and snow fell on to the fire and put it out. He could not build another fire because his hands were frozen.
The man realizes how dumb and arrogant he had been to go on this trip alone. He realizes he should have listened to the old man at Sulfur Creek because the old man said to go with a partner on the trail.
The man dies of frostbite on the trail. The man's dog smells that he is dead and leaves him.
