Robert Service wrote "there are strange things done 'neath the midnight sun". Well it looks like we can add Alaska's Clifton Vial to that list.
Seems Clifton crashed his truck and got stuck in a snowdrift near Nome.
But Clifton was prepared. He used a sleeping bag to keep warm and started up the truck every once and a while so he could turn on the heater all in an effort to avoid frostbite with the temperature dropping to around the -28C mark.
Unfortunately he had no food with him but he did have a knife and...wait for it...several frozen cans of Coors light. You know, the beer that's best served chilled? Yeah, so he used his knife to cut the cans and dined on frozen beer. Seems he didn't have to wait for the mountains to turn blue to tell him the beer was cold.
Things all ended happily as Clifton's boss realized he hadn't turned up for work and sent a search party out to find him.
When his rescuers finally found him and asked him if he was okay, Clifton replied "Oh, yeth, I thertainly yam but I hass to pee sumfin' fierce."
